when using parametr bindings, one can use ognl, (which is slowmotion), to navigate through an object graph.
A (fast) alterntive is use an abstract property with an initializer method:
component A :
public abstract X getX();
now if X is dependant on the bindings of component A, this will not work, since X property will often be initialized before the bindings are available - or sometimes, also when not posssible to get, because, say, component A is inside an If which does not allow it to render, if unable to... (say x ID is not given...)
please add a lazy initialization option for abstract properties to allow this be treated more smoothly...
