I am very confused I have date input on a page and using <f:convertDateTime> for conversion on my bean one day is subtracting from the date user enters.
If user enters 02/01/2009, it is changed to 01/31/2009. Is this a bug with this tag. Comments/Suggestions/workaround?

Thanks.

you have to enter your timeZone to fix this: an example would be:

<h:outputText value="#{fax.date}" >
<f:convertDateTime timeZone="Turkey"/>
</h:outputText>

you can search for your timezone, and put it there.

Just to make it clear. If you don't explicitly provide a timezone, the displayed date is based on UTC. And when it's 3 am in Greenwich, England, it's still evening in New York.

You can also use

the seam taglib. This doesn't have the bug that JSF tag has. If you use this taglib you needn't specify the default timezone.
