JSF Validation not working

I am trying to do the validation using JSF validator interface.
For some reason the control is not reaching m y validator code at all.
I tried a system.out inside the method and its not printing out.
Any help is appreciated!

Here is my code:

public class MyValidator implements Validator {
public void validate(FacesContext context, UIComponent uiComponent,
Object object) throws ValidatorException {
System.out.println("in the validator method");
validateSomething(context, uiComponent, object);

In the faces-config i have




In the JSP i have
<TD class="textBoxNew">
<h:inputText id="text1" value="#{UserBean.field1}" >
<f:validator validatorId="MyValidator"/></h:inputText>

Am i doing anything wrong here?
