How can I put my custom error messages for JSF built-in validators?

You normally specify the validation message as the text of the ValidationException thrown by the validator. However, you can override this on the validator tag itself and display whatever text you want to for the element being validated.

Is it possible to override the error message from a built-in validator (ex: valueRequired validator) globally? That means if I make some changes in the web.xml or faces-config.xml, I will have my custom message for this validator in all my JSF pages.

The "required=" attribute is a special case, since it's built into tags instead of applied as a sub-element. Yes, you can override this message.

I don't remember the details, but I think they're pretty easy to dig up. The same mechanism also permits overriding the more conventional (element-defined) standard validators.

use the following code in faces-config.xml file and write your own properties file with name xxxxxxMessages.properties
but make sure to use the same error code/Id for user defined property file and give whatever the description you want.
