Defining a bean to point to an object returned from a method  RSS feed

JSP Code snippet:

<logic:notEmpty name="currentControl" property="selectedRoles">
<logic:iterate id="roleCd" name="currentControl" property="selectedRoles" type="java.lang.String">
<% ControlRoleInfo currentRole = currentControl.getCurrentRole(roleCd); %>

<span class="bold">Date:</span> 
<bean:write name="currentRole" property="date" /><br>

Basically, I have here an iteration within an iteration. The object retrieved in the outer iteration has a number of objects of the same class type and it has a public method getCurrentRole that is used to figure out which object is relevant during each pass of the inner iteration. I could not find a way to use a bean:define tag to point to the object returned by this method call, and my bean:write tag cannot see the currentRole object initialized in the scriptlet shown above. Though I realize I can just use scriptlets all the way here instead, I want to use struts tags as much as possible in my code for consistency with existing code.

I look forward to seeing your ideas on how to achieve this.
