For some reason the developers don't have convertEntity in the tld in seam 1.2.1. It is available for facelets developers. Under 2.0.0 Beta it is available for both but only works in facelets.
Hopefully, one of the devs will come over and fill you in.
Is this something I can manually configure or should I create a custom converter? I am new to seam but it seems this is something pretty common that I am trying to do.
Thanks for any help,
