Subject Re: DynaBeans, DynaClass, DynaMen

I have implemented the same approach: getting results from a database query 
and wrap them in an ArrayList of dynabeans. In that way I can use the Struts 
Customs tags in order to render the dynabeans content in the JSP.

Custom Tags rely on Commons BeanUtils package which is able to inspect any 
Java Bean or Dynabean to pick up the information.

I think your approach is correct,
