public class TransformTag extends HtmlEscapingAwareTag
The <transform> tag provides transformation for reference data values from controllers and other objects inside a spring:bind tag (or a data-bound form element tag from Spring's form tag library).

The BindTag has a PropertyEditor that it uses to transform properties of a bean to a String, usable in HTML forms. This tag uses that PropertyEditor to transform objects passed into this tag.
