Hello,

I am looking for form based error message in JSF. I have different 3 different <h:form> tags in a single jsp for 3 different sections. (I am using 3 forms becuase all three forms are independent. And having individual save functionality which checks for JSF validations if click on Save. If I use single form when i click on Save of fisrt form fires Rrquired Validations of Second Form, which is not desirable).

My form structure is like following.
<f:view>
  <h:form
   SECTION1>
  </h:form>

  <h:form
   SECTION2>
  </h:form>

  <h:form
   SECTION3>
  </h:form>
</f:view>

I Have some form level messages to show (HTML form level not page level). I am using following code to show message

FacesContext context = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
FacesMessage msg = new FacesMessage();
msg.setSummary(pSummary);
msg.setDetail(pDetail);
msg.setSeverity(pSeverity);
context.addMessage(null, msg);

Error message is showing in all the forms. In any way can I show form level mesages?.

There is only one Messages collection for any given JSF page view. The best you can do is to provide supply a component ID to your messages as you construct them and set up the messages tags in the forms to only display messages that have that ID.

Thanks for the reply.

I solved my issue using h:message at each form and setting for attribute of that to Form Name.

In the controller I am using the componentId of the form to assign messages to respective form message.
