I'm afraid I can't give an actual answer, but I will make some observations, for what they're worth.
1. I have always discouraged developing custom tags at the binary level. The present versions of JSF are too complex and insufficiently stable, which means that such constructs are going to be expensive not only to develop, but to maintain.
2. I certainly hope you are attempting to subclass the HtmlInputText control rather than alter its behaviour directly. That can get you in a lot of trouble.
3. To reduce the pain, suffering, and costs of items 1 and 2, my recommendation is to create custom JSF tags using the XML tag facility where possible and not the binary approach. Sometimes you have no choice, such as when you are generating unusual content (HTML5 generation, Google Maps support tags and the like). But if you have a choice, you'll enjoy life more and get things done faster using XML.

Thanks for your reply
Yes you are right I am attempting to subclass the HtmlInputText control.
I don't have option to use XML in my application
Can I extend basic UIInput class and implement all the neccesary methods in my class as HTMLInputText Class also inheriting UIInput and doing the same.
Will It work?
When I hear "Don't have the option", my instinctive response is "Update your CV". Lack of options usually means that some idiot manager thinks he knows more than he does. Especially when an absurdly complex solution is the only alternative allowed. You will be better off in the long run working in a shop where competence is permitted than being ruined by one where arbitrary - and often defective - rules apply. And you won't acquire bad habits.
As I said before, if you must construct a binary solution and you can't find a new job fast enough, you should not attempt to mutilate HtmlInputText. Subclass it, instead.
