You can look at these 2 links (they explained a lot about validations):


So my understanding at this point is that the jsf framework will not call any validator when a value is null (I guess this is because there is no need to validate anything in that case).
I believe the reason for this is that in case of a null value, we either accept it (attribute required=false) or we refuse it (required=true).
Now since the attribute requiredMessage is not implemented, I can see to possible fix:
 1- override javax.faces.component.UIInput.REQUIRED in your messages.properties
 javax.faces.component.UIInput.REQUIRED = My error message
That will replace the ugly "Validator Error" message. But if you have 5 inputText in your page, you'll get 5 times this message...

2 - You can extend any components (inputText,...) you need to use and implement the missing attribute.

Maybe there are other solutions. I'm still looking into that problem myself.
