CAFF is Conversion and Formatting Framework library for Java. It allows developer to specify characters conversion and formatting code logics in annotations and simple API.

The conversion framework covers normal character - object conversion for primitive and most usual objects, and it allows to create customized rule and define customized annotations, with which the simple generic conversion API knows how to convert based upon customized conversion rules.

The formatting framework focuses on several common text format such as CSV, fix-length and delimiter based syntax. With predefined annotations, combined with customized conversion annotations, arbitrary Java bean can be easily formatted to or parsed from characters such as Reader/Writer or CharSequence.
