Here is some more info. Click calls the getter method of the path to 
figure out whether to instantiate
a new instance or not.

field = new TextField("address.street");

 From the above Click will tokenize the field path into "address" and 
"street". Next it will try and check if
address is null through reflection by invoking the address getter:


If client.getAddress returns null Click tries and instantiates the Address.

If you use a debugger you can place a breakpoint roughly on line 595 of 
If your breakpoint is hit, it means Click tries to instantiate a object...

kind regards
