Customization of the java:comp/ValidatorFactory lookup needs to be implemented using WEB-INF/validation.xml or META-INF/validation.xml descriptors as described in section EE.5.16 of the Java EE 6 specification.
I believe you were working on this one.

o Throw deployment exception for errors in parsing validation and constraint mapping xml

o When the modules are packaged in an EAR, additional processing is required to obtain the validation descriptors

I think this has been fixed, so close it.
