Struts Validator framework

I have a form which has the date feild to be validated

<form name="formname">
<form-field property="dob" depends="date,dateRange">
<msg name="dateRange" key="errors.field.range3" />


I like to give different error message for failure in date and dateRange failure. We have a custom validator where we have implemented the validateDate and validateDateRange methods. There we get the error message Resources.getActionError(request,va, field)); I like to know how to get different messages.

You specify the error message in the "msg" attribute of the validator tag in the validator-rules.xml.
