You don't have to do anything extra. If the field on the form is bound to a numeric data type on the backing bean, the validation is done for you. If you type a character in the field you will get a conversion error message. Something like this: Specified value is not a valid number.
Hope this helps.

Additional you may additional add a validate constraint. In IBM jsf, this is what I do.

<hx:validateConstraint regex="^-?\d+(\.\d{2})?$" />
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
