    @Converter usage in ui example problem

    Jason Long Master

      I am trying to get the following code to work that was taken almost verbatim from the ui example in Seam 1.2.1. By the converter is never called.

      In fact is does not work for me in the ui example either. I put a System.out and recompiled the example and I never see any output.

      Any help would be most appreciated.

      import static org.jboss.seam.InterceptionType.NEVER;
      import javax.faces.component.UIComponent;
      import javax.faces.context.FacesContext;
      import javax.faces.convert.ConverterException;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Intercept;
      import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Name;
      public class NewlineBrConverter implements javax.faces.convert.Converter
       public NewlineBrConverter() { }
       public String getAsString(FacesContext context, UIComponent component, Object value)
       try {
       return ((String)value).replaceAll("\r\n","<br/>");
       } catch (Exception e) {
       return null;
       public Object getAsObject(FacesContext context, UIComponent component, String value) throws ConverterException
       return value + "";

       <rich:column styleClass="wrap" >
       <f:facet name="header">text</f:facet>
       <h:outputText value="#{messageL.text}" converter="#{converters.newlineConverter}"/>
