I'm modifying a project from Spring In Action by Walls. The project is chapter six's thymeleaf mvc project. I'm adding a confirm password field to the registration form which is backed by a Spitter Object. I add validation to the project to check for the length of the password field and to check that the password and confirmPassword fields match. The Spitter form backing object is

The SpitterController is

The registrationForm is

I have a message resource bundle for Spring-manage messages,

And a for the JSR 303 and Hibernate Validator messages:

The message validation seems to work well except for one issue. When I force a password mismatch, I see something like the following (see attached png file):


Please fix the following error(s)

Your passwords don't match. Please try again

Instead of the single "Your passwords don't match. Please try again." message, I also see "spitter.password.mismatch.message" as a message and can't figure out why.

Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
