>                 Key: BEANUTILS-403
>                 URL:
>             Project: Commons BeanUtils
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: ConvertUtils & Converters
>    Affects Versions: 1.8.3
>            Reporter: Michael Vorburger
>         Attachments:
> ConvertUtils should allow registering Converters not only with destination class, but
with destination AND with source class.
> In addition to the void register(Converter converter, Class clazz) method, there should
also be a register(Converter converter, Class sourceClass, Class destinationClass).  The implementation
in Converter lookup(Class sourceType, Class targetType), which currently in the last line
just does return lookup(targetType), should look for a Converter registered with both targetType
& sourceType (if any).
> This would allow something like the attached example (Test case) to work, where I'd like
to register a Converter which can turn A into B, as well as another Converter which can turn
into Object into B (imagine B being something like a DynaBean) - this is not currently possible,
but would be useful.
