robert, thanks for the comments. i'm fairly sure that i'm using 1.6.1, 
but i'll verify.

i'm glad to hear that beanutils seems to have the ability to do what i'm 
asking of it. as this is the first time i've worked with indexed nested 
properties, it's very likely that the problem is pilot error; i was just 
hoping that somebody could look at the data i provided and call out an 
obvious problem.

in any case, i will put together a test and then get back to you. thanks
