anybody has an easier way to tell the . and  in EL??
it has too much freedom so that it is out of my control.

I do not think there is another way. This is an easy way to access object in all the scope, to access the JavaBeans, a map you would have been defined in your page, etc ... This afford also to have succint expressions compared to the JSP syntax expressions (<%=expr%> .
In fact you do not have to locate your object...
I think the most problem is that you are not used to this syntax yet. Take your time, and you will see the real power of this syntax.
