Does anyone know if I can and if so how to get an instance of the FacesContext in one of my JavaBeans? Validation seems to send the FacesContext as an argument, but I need to get this outside of the validation is that is possible. Thanks.

Gregg, The method mentioned by Dave is a good way to get an instance of the FacesContext in one of your JavaBeans. Since that method is a static method of FacesContext class itself, you can get the current instance outside of the validation.
FacesContext.getCurrentInstance() is used to return the FacesContext instance from the HTTP request, which is being processed by the current thread of the application.
