JSF validation errors

Below is the problem statement:

I have a page which has 5 radio buttons and 5 different types of Submit buttons.
User clicks on a radio and presses one of the Submit buttons(say CS), then user should be navigated to a different page displaying the details of the selected id(on the radio) like persons name,city etc...

Instead the page re-displays saying "Validation error:Value is not valid" (at the top of the page).

Error thrown on RAD IDE is as below:

"9/11/07 07:22:23:469 GMT] 00000046 jsf I com.sun.faces.context.FacesContextImpl addMessage Adding Message[sourceId=NONE,summary=Validation error:Value is not valid.)"

Thanks in advance.

"karthik kk",
Welcome to the JavaRanch.

We're a friendly group, but we do require members to have valid display names.

Please edit your profile and correct your display name since accounts with display names get deleted.

Thats the default error message that JSF throws when it actually should say something like "Hey, I was expecting a String but you passed in a integer"

What field is your radio button mapped to? Boolean or String or Int?

Thanks for the reply.

My radio button is mapped to a String and no where in the code i do some invalid conversions(like trying to use it has a int).
I agree. Here's the link:
