Yes there is. And although I am really beginning to hate JavaScript for any sort of serious work, this is one case where I recommend it.

On the commandButton:

This works with plain JSF with no read for any extended capabilities so there's no need to use a4j. In fact, this works for basic HTML even without JSF.

If you code an onclick handler on a submit button (or equivalent), the submit will be cancelled if the event handler returns false.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
