JSF has convertors to convert its UI component's data to object used in a managed bean and vice versa.
For example, we can convert a text into date object and can validate the format of input as well.
To use the converter tag, we have to use the following namespaces of URI in html node.
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:f="http://java.sun.com/jsf/core" >
Following are important Convertor Tags in JSF 2.0:
|f:convertNumber||Converts a String into a Number of desired format|
|f:convertDateTime||Converts a String into a Date of desired format|
|Custom Convertor||Creating a custom convertor|
