Date Validation

I am having a problem in this. I dont want a user to pick a previous date so I am having minimum "now".

<h:inputText value="#{myBean.effectiveDate}" id="effectiveDate">
<f:convertDateTime type="date" pattern="MM/dd/yyyy"/><hx:inputHelperDatePicker />
<hx:validateDateTimeRange minimum="#{now}" />

but the problem is when user enters today's date, it validate time also and then gives validation error because by default the time is 12 PM and if user is trying after 12 PM, it will give validation error. I am using a pattern also but still having problem.

thanks in advance.

"vd grg",

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.
