      Description

      hi.....using getValue() method of org.jboss.util.propertyeditor.DateEditor with a locale configuration different by english, there is a java.text.ParseException and no Date returns. Below I added a patch in org.jboss.util.propertyeditor.DateEditor class to resolve this problem. I rewrote the getAsText() method so it can to returns a LOCALE String format , after that getValue() method can to parse it right. I added also a formatsForText attribute. It is similar to formats attribute but it is in a ENGLISH format so I can to create a String in a right manner in the getAsText()
