Hi all!
How can i make sure at conversion and validation phase during the JSF lifecycle that entered value in <h:inputText> contains alphabets only?
Thanks in advance.

Write a custom validator and use a regex to check the input.

Something like this:

I may be wrong, buy I believe there already is a regex-based standard validator. So writing a custom validator shouldn't be necessary.

As far as I know in JSF 1.2 there's only the required, numeric range (doubles or ints) and string length standard validators.

I don't know about JSF 2.0.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
