We're updating the issue view to help you get more done. 

Document the JavaTypeDescriptor registration process and the JavaTypeDescriptorRegistry.

Description

As mentioned by Steve on the forum, the JavaTypeDescriptorRegistry allows us to register a JavaTypeDescriptor which can handle a certain Java entity property type so that custom types implemented via AttributeConverter can be auto-discovered by Hibernate.

We need to document this process based on the example offered in the Hibernate forum attached at the beginning of this issue.
