welcome to the community Venkatraman,
instead of using h:outputText for "confirms" use h:outputLabel, you need a component with JS events to show your tooltip.
<h:outputLabel id="confirms" value="Confirm"/>
Hi Ibrahim Thanks for your reply. I tried implementing the above solution,but still the tool tip is not displaying. Regards Venkatraman.P
try this :
<h:ouptutLabel id="confirms" value="Confirm">
<rich:tooltip value="Hi Confirm" attached="true"/>
