I have a rich:calendar in my jsf page, the value behind is a date object of the corresponding backing bean (stateful session bean). I would like to customize the error message, if the user enters an invalid date format. the default error message ist not really user friendly ;-) the problem is, i can not find a hibernate validator where i can add my custom message.
i don't user a hibernate validator on this field at all, but it seems that nonetheless the field is being validated.
which hibernate validator should i use? is there another way?
