JSF - Convertor Tags

JSF provides inbuilt convertors to convert its UI component's data to object used in a managed bean and vice versa. For example, these tags can convert a text into date object and can validate the format of input as well.

For these tags, you need to use the following namespaces of URI in html node.

   xmlns = "http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" 
   xmlns:f = "http://java.sun.com/jsf/core">
