How to use Custom Converter by Id?

I am building a Sprint boot Application ,where i make a Request and then i get a Response. Before i make the request,i need to transform my data.But,the Destination class to transform could be different for the same Source class to transform. Example :

   public Request getTransformedRequest(Request, String typeTransformation) {
       Request transformedRequest=,Request.class);
       return transformedRequest;
If i am not using Converters,and i am using just normal Dozer mapping,i can have the following in my mapping.xml;

And then in my code,for the same Source class ,i can switch using the mapping Id;

 ClassB,Request.class,"Type1"); //Here ClassB extends Request
 ClassC,Request.class,"Type2"); //Here ClassC extends Request
My problem,it s i cant do the same with converters.I want to have different converters for the same source class:

So ,in my scenario,i would like to select (like in the mapping id example) ,the converter i wish. I really appreciate same help.Thanks in advance.
