Subject RE: variable managed bean name in JSF EL

Thank you for the responses.  That is exactly what I was asking Simon.
And t:aliasBean seems to have done the trick.  I have not tried Sushma's
solution yet but t:aliasBean is working nicely.  Thanks for the help!

Subject: Re: variable managed bean name in JSF EL

I think that what Torin was really asking was how to make
<managedBeanName> reference different objects depending on what "parent"

page included this one.

When using JSP, the tomahawk t:aliasBean tag is the best way to do this:

   <t:aliasBean value="#{realBean1}" alias="#{dst}">
     <jsp:include ..../>

   <t:aliasBean value="#{realBean2}" alias="#{dst}">
     <jsp:include ..../>

The included page can then reference #{dst}. The effect is pretty much
like a method parameter.
