Testing the mojarra bean-validation sample on Glassfish v3 prelude and JBoss 6.0.0.M1, I ran into the following exception:
javax.servlet.ServletException: /placeOrder.xhtmlat line 49 and column 109 <f:validateBean> Parent not composite component or an instance of EditableValueHolder: javax.faces.component.html.HtmlForm@494c491b
f:validateBean is used as a container of EditableValueHolders in the sample, the following code shoes where the error occurs:
<f:validateBean validationGroups="beanvalidation.groups.Personal , beanvalidation.groups.Order">
where <ui:include src="/WEB-INF/fragments/form.xhtml"/> includes a form of some <h:inputText> (--> EditableValueHolder) components.
However, f:validateBean is also used inside of some of the <h:inputText> components and works well at this point.
