 package javax.faces.convert;
 

The presence of this annotation on a class automatically registers the class with the runtime as a Converter. The value of the value() attribute is taken to be converter-id, the value of the forClass() attribute is taken to be converter-for-class and the fully qualified class name of the class to which this annotation is attached is taken to be the converter-class. The implementation must guarantee that for each class annotated with FacesConverter, found with the algorithm in section JSF.11.5, the proper variant of Application.addConverter() is called. If converter-id is not the empty string, javax.faces.application.Application.addConverter(java.lang.String,java.lang.String) is called, passing the derived converter-id as the first argument and the derived converter-class as the second argument. If converter-id is the empty string, javax.faces.application.Application.addConverter(java.lang.Class,java.lang.String) is called, passing the converter-for-class as the first argument and the derived converter-class as the second argument. The implementation must guarantee that all such calls to addConverter() happen during application startup time and before any requests are serviced.

 
 
 public @interface FacesConverter {

    

The value of this annotation attribute is taken to be the converter-id with which instances of this class of converter can be instantiated by calling javax.faces.application.Application.createConverter(java.lang.String).

  
 
     String value() default "";

    

The value of this annotation attribute is taken to be the converter-for-class with which instances of this class of converter can be instantiated by calling javax.faces.application.Application.createConverter(java.lang.Class).
