How to convert JIRA's wiki markup to HTML?

I used DefaultWysiwygConverter (from to convert HTML to Wiki markup, but didn't manage to do the opposite. I tried following:

DefaultWysiwygConverter converter = new DefaultWysiwygConverter();
RenderContext context = new RenderContext();

String wikiMarkup = ...

String html = converter.convertWikiMarkupToXHtml(context, wikiMarkup);

But this failed, since apparently something called "WikiStyleRenderer" was not defined in DefaultWysiwygConverter.

Any tips on how to get Wiki markup to HTML work?

So long as you have an issue in context (usually the case in JIRA):

JiraRendererPlugin wikiRenderer = fRendererManager.getRendererForType("atlassian-wiki-renderer");
IssueRenderContext renderContext = renderContext = new IssueRenderContext(issueObject);
String html = wikiRenderer.render(wikiMarkup, renderContext);
