new FAQ page

New page:

== The Apache Jakarta BeanUtils Frequently Asked Questions Page ==

=== Introduction ===

This page is intended to gather answers to questions that are regularly asked on the beanutils
email lists.

If you discovered something about BeanUtils that you think other people may find useful, please
edit this page to add that information.

=== Why isn't String -> Date conversion provided by default? ===

Simply because different regions of the world use different date layouts. There isn't any
date format that is a reasonable built-in default.

 * USA: mm-dd-yyyy, mm/dd/yyyy
 * Europe/Pacific: dd-mm-yyyy
 * Other popular formats: yyyy-mm-dd, yyyymmdd

If you want BeanUtils to do implicit String->Date conversions for you, then you just need
to register a suitable converter for the date
formats you expect to encounter in your input.
