[jboss-user] [JBoss Seam] - Validation messages are inconsistent

Can anyone explain why I can control the message for @Pattern, but the message for @NotNull is ignored.


If I annotate a field on an @Entity with these annotations

  | @NotNull(message="field is null")
  | @Pattern("^\W$",message="field not valid")

and then reference the entity in a JFS/Facelets page like this

  | <h:messages/>
  | <h:inputText value="#{entity.name}" required="true">
  |     <s:validate/>
  | </h:inputText>

and then test it, the @NotNull message doesn't doesn't display.  I get the default message:  {0}: Validation Error: Value is required.

But, when I test it for the Pattern validation, the @Pattern message DOES display!?

I haven't tested using a message.properties, and from what I know, we don't have one (though there could be a default one in a jar somewhere that is setup for NotNull but not Pattern.)

Can anyone clear this up for me?
