One suggestion: simplify or refactor BeanMetaData constructions somehow. Why not use factory methods to create BeanMetaData? I think it might be a bit more self-documenting. This is not easily understood at a glance: new BeanMetaData(bean.getClass(), null, this, null, false); Something like this is easier to read, although arguably a bit less discoverable. BeanMetaData.forBean(bean); BeanMetaData.forChildBean(bean, VIEW_ONLY);

Also, why can’t I say just this: 12 add(new BeanForm(“beanForm”, new Customer())); instead of this: 12 Customer bean = new Customer(); 13 BeanMetaData meta = new BeanMetaData(bean.getClass(), null, this, null, false); 14 add( new BeanForm(“beanForm”, bean, meta) ); assuming I want the default metadata extraction.

Thank you! Both of these are really good suggestions. The latter one would be especially useful if you’re using annotations or beanprops. I’ll add them to the to-do list!
