Converters are used to convert number or date/time values for string representation and vice versa. If you want to display a Number or Date/DateTime process data attribute well formated in an input widget then use the basic converters provided by the JSF core framework: convertNumber and convertDateTime.

See this code fragment from an input form:

<p:calendar id="Birthday" value="#{data.birthday}" navigator="true"
        required="true" pattern="dd.MM.yyyy">
    <f:convertDateTime pattern="dd.MM.yyyy" />

Custom Faces Converters can be implemented as a Java class with a specific FacesConverter annotation and then be used in your Axon.ivy project.
