This week's book giveaway is in the General Computing forum. We're giving away four copies of Arduino in Action and have Martin Evans, Joshua Noble, and Jordan Hochenbaum on-line! See this thread for details.
You need AJAX. And I don't think "immediate" is valid for the inputText tag. For one thing, "immediate" means "don't send down values", so that kind of defeats the purpose.
Also, the backing bean updating isn't optional. Converters are only used when sending to/receiving from a backing bean. Usually, you won't care, since the data is also validated, but it is something to keep in mind, that the bean's property will be updated onblur instead of waiting for a normal submit.
Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
