      Description

      When the value of our ice:inputText component is null and there's a converter specified for this component, a NullPointerException occurs because our component sends the value to the converter anyway, unlike h:inputText, which doesn't send it, avoiding this kind of issues.

        r52128: fix to avoid sending a null value to a converter, in order to prevent possible NullPointerException exceptions

        This fix is actually applied for all compat (ice:*) components.

        Looking at the mojarra source code, this behaviour is confirmed. The following two pages have discuss this fact in more detail.
