The first issue I see is that you need to find the form itself, using
'param.formName' as the key into the session or request map.  I think
you're going to have to know where the form is stored for this to

Then you need to get the property out of the form.  You said it's a
dynamic form, so you'll need to go through the form's 'map' property
to do that.

Try something like this:

  <c: if test="${session[param.formName].map.someProp}" >

You may want to split it up with a <c:set>, to make it more readable.

Now someone will probably point out that I'm making it far more
complicated than it needs to be. :)
