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.

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

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

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