Adding custom Converters to ConversionService in Spring MVC

If somebody starts to play a little with a Sping MVC application sooner rather than later will see a message saying something like

blah, blah, blah, nested exception is java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Cannot convert value of type [java.lang.String] to required type [sth.model.MyCustomType] for property 'propertyName': no matching editors or conversion strategy found

There are a lot of spnippets around how to create a converter, name it StringToMyCustomTypeConverter (I can recommend this one: http://www.javabeat.net/2011/02/introduction-to-spring-converters-and-formatters/), and also how to add it in the xml configuration:

<bean id="conversionService" class="org.springframework.context.support.ConversionServiceFactoryBean">
  <property name="converters">
    <list>
      <bean id="StringToMyCustomTypeConverter" class="sth.converter.StringToMyCustomTypeConverter" />
    </list>
  </property>
</bean>

In my spring familiarization project I've decided to use java config to some extend. So I spent time looking around how to add custom converters in code. I easly run into problem with two ConversionService(s) registerd which ended with no explicit bean with name 'conversionService' error. Finally I found working (and very easy indeed) solution. My configuration class e.g. AppConfig (annotated with @Configuration), has to extend WebMvcConfigurerAdapter (or implement WebMvcConfigurer interface) and just override addFormatters method (you can register converters there also):

@Override
public void addFormatters(FormatterRegistry formatterRegistry) {
    formatterRegistry.addConverter(new StringToMyCustomTypeConverter());
}
