You have to specify the index.  And unfortunately it
seems JXPath isn't smart enough to be able to take an
expression as an index.  Here's what I had to do here:

//given MyBean { List getList(){...} void
setList(List)}:

        MyBean myBean = new MyBean();
        myBean.getList().add("foo");
        JXPathContext context =
JXPathContext.newContext(myBean);
        context.setFactory(new AbstractFactory() {
            public boolean createObject(JXPathContext
context, Pointer pointer,
                    Object parent, String name, int
index) {
                if (pointer instanceof
PropertyPointer) {
                    Object baseValue =
((PropertyPointer) pointer).getBaseValue();
                    if (baseValue instanceof List) {
                        List list = (List) baseValue;
                        while (index >= list.size()) {
                            list.add(null);
                        }
                        return true;
                    }
                }
                return false;
            }
        });
        int listSize = ((Integer)
context.getValue("size(/list)")).intValue();
        context.createPathAndSetValue("/list[" +
(listSize + 1) + "]", "bar");

HTH,
