          You can use the standard ADF Faces Converter ( Refer Section 6.3.1 http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E25178_01/web.1111/b31973/af_validate.htm#BABHICGB )

          Example 6-2 af:convertDateTime Multiple Patterns

          <af:inputDate id="mdf5" value="2004/09/06" label="attached converter">
          <af:convertDateTime pattern="yyyy/M/d" secondaryPattern="d/M/yyyy" />
