One simple (but perhaps ugly?) way is to provide also page-specific setters along with the
usual JavaBean-setters:

// Page provides personId using the name ”a”.
public final void setA(String personId) { ... }

// JavaBean-version (if also needed)
public final void setPersonId(String personId) { ... }
