inject DAO in JSF converter

Hi,

I have selectOneListbox JSF component, which I populate with a list of MyItem objects, where MyItem class extends javax.faces.model.SelectItem.

I created MyItemConverter, which has getAsString(..) method that converts a given MyItem instance to String. However, in order to implement getAsObject(..) I need to look up MyItem record in the database by its String representation.

So, my question is how can I inject a MyItemDAO instance into MyItemConverter to allow the converter to use the DAO to look up the item from the database?

Thanks.

Alec
