Code

<f:converter>

Example :

Step 1: Welcome page of Example

<h:panelGrid columns="2" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2" >
<h:outputLabel value="Website name" />
<h:inputText id="name" value="#{converter.name}" required="true" size="30">

<%-- Display result --%>
<h:panelGrid rendered="#{converter.flag != false}" >
Website url: <h:outputText value="#{converter.name}"/>
</h:panelGrid>
</h:form>
</body>
</html>
</f:view>

Step 2: Faces-config.xml file for mapping resource

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<!-- =========== FULL CONFIGURATION FILE ========= -->
<faces-config version="2.0"
 xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee"
 xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
 xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee 
 http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-facesconfig_2_0.xsd">
 <managed-bean>
  <managed-bean-name>converterBean</managed-bean-name>
  <managed-bean-class>r4r.JSF2.converterBean</managed-bean-class>
  <managed-bean-scope>request</managed-bean-scope>
 </managed-bean>
 <!-- == Add Converter class invoked by converterId in JSP == -->
 <converter>
  <converter-id>ConverterClass</converter-id>
  <converter-class>r4r.JSF2.ConverterClass</converter-class>
 </converter>
</faces-config>

Step 3: ManagedBean class for provide logic in program

/*
 * Save as a converterBean.java
 */
package r4r.JSF2;
import javax.faces.bean.ManagedBean;
/* --Bean name -- */
@ManagedBean(name = "converter")
public class converterBean {
private String name;
private boolean flag = false;
/* -- Getter/Setter -- */
public boolean isFlag() {
return flag;
}
public void setFlag(boolean flag) {
this.flag = flag;
}
public String getName() {
return name;
}
public void setName(String name) {
this.name = name;
}
/* -- submit method -- */
public String submit() {
flag = true;
return "submit";
}
}

Step 4: Converter class

/*
 * Save as a ConverterClass.java
 * Class is implements Converter interface that can perform
 * Object-to-String and String-to-Object conversions
 */
package r4r.JSF2;
import javax.faces.application.FacesMessage;
import javax.faces.component.UIComponent;
import javax.faces.context.FacesContext;
import javax.faces.convert.Converter;
import javax.faces.convert.FacesConverter;
import org.hibernate.validator.constraints.impl.URLValidator;
@FacesConverter
public class ConverterClass implements Converter {
@Override
public Object getAsObject(FacesContext context, UIComponent component, String value) {
/* -- define string -- */
String HTTP = "http://www.";
String COM = ".com";
StringBuilder url = new StringBuilder();
/* -- Check input String start with http in front, if not then add it -- */
if (!value.startsWith(HTTP, 0)) {
url.append(HTTP);
}
/* -- Check input String contain .com in last, if not then add it -- */
if (value.indexOf(".com") == -1) {
url.append(value).append(COM);
}
//use common URL validator to validate URL
URLValidator uRLValidator = new URLValidator();
/*-- Check the URL validation  --*/
if (uRLValidator.isValid(url.toString(), null)) {
FacesMessage message = new FacesMessage(FacesMessage.SEVERITY_ERROR,
"URL conversion error!", "enter URL format is invalid");
context.addMessage(null, message);
}
/* -- Create a new NewURL url class which extends object-- */
NewURL newURL = new NewURL(url.toString());
return newURL;
}
@Override
public String getAsString(FacesContext context, UIComponent component, Object value) {
return value.toString();
}
}

step 5: NewURL class

/*
 * Save as a NewURL.java
 * Class in used to set/get the NewURL property .
 */
package r4r.JSF2;
 public class NewURL {
private String NewFullURL;
 NewURL(String NewFullURL) {
this.NewFullURL = NewFullURL;
}
 /* -- Getter/Setter -- */
public String getNewFullURL() {
return NewFullURL;
}
public void setNewFullURL(String NewFullURL) {
this.NewFullURL = NewFullURL;
}
@Override
public String toString() {
return NewFullURL.toString();
}
}
