Not exactly (also it might be wording), you have to create a component
that might use beans but doesn't have to.

But in general, yes you're right. My approach is targetted at editing 
business objects (=java objects). It's not used for editing xml data
or for processing form values in others ways, like sending emails etc.

That's why I still think that it makes sense to follow the dywel approach
but I want to use underneath as much as possible from the existing
features we already have.
