>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: ConvertUtils & Converters

>             Fix For: 1.9.0
> The base implementation of the {{convert(Class type, Object value, String pattern)}}
method in {{BaseLocaleConverter}} completely ignores the _type_ parameter which defines the
desired target class of the conversion. Obviously, it is assumed that the converter is correctly
registered for the class it supports.
> Converters should check whether they support the passed in target type and throw an exception
if not. This would lead to more robust code providing meaningful error messages. Otherwise,
a wrong converter registration is harder to detect; it would probably lead to {{ClassCastException}}
errors elsewhere in the application.
