If you could patch the bug, you could submit that too in the bug
report. I don't know custom tags yet, otherwise I would have taken a
shot at it.

Accessing an Object property of a JavaBean is easy with EL, as long as
the Object property is also a JavaBean.

Here's how:

<jsp:useBean id="someJavaBean" class="your.package.SomeJavaBean"


I've tested the above and it works, as long as the main JavaBean and
it's properties are populated and the main JavaBean is stored in
request attribute prior to accessing the JSP

In the above case, I would store the List<InvoiceBean> invoices1 = new
ArrayList<InvoiceBean>(); ----- itself in the Http Request , and then
access the invoices1 in the JSP using

<jsp:useBean id="invoices1" class="java.util.ArrayList" scope="request"/>

But if you want to access it as you've shown above then it might be
possible with some combination of jsp:useBean and c:set etc - I'll try
to see if it's possible.
