public interface Converter
General purpose data type converter that can be registered and used within the BeanUtils package to manage the conversion of objects from one type to another.
Converter subclasses bundled with the BeanUtils library are required to be thread-safe, as users of the library may call conversion methods from more than one thread simultaneously.
Custom converter subclasses created by users of the library can be non-thread-safe if the application using them is single-threaded. However it is recommended that they be written in a thread-safe manner anyway.
type- Data type to which this value should be converted
value- The input value to be converted
ConversionException- if conversion cannot be performed successfully
