Custom DateTimeConverter in JSF

SHARE & COMMENT :

By default JSF using GMT timezone to convert the date into display format.

Here is a simple solution where you can provide your custom date time converter.

also read:

1) Write a new custom converter by extending existing DateTimeConverter class.

 
package com.company.project.converter;
import java.util.TimeZone;
import javax.faces.convert.DateTimeConverter;
public class CustomDateTimeConverter extends DateTimeConverter {
public CustomDateTimeConverter() {
super();
setTimeZone(TimeZone.getDefault());
// here you can set your custom date pattern for your project
// setPattern("M/d/yy");
}
}

Bind your new converter as default converter for object of type java.util.Date

<converter>
<converter-for-class>java.util.Date</converter-for-class>
<converter-class>com.company.project.converter.CustomDateTimeConverter</converter-class>
</converter>

    When we are using the class DateTimeConverter, is the TimeZone.getDefault() used by default ? Or is it a GMT ?
