ExpressionContainer works similar to BeanItemContainer-like and brings support for Spring Expression Language

Sample code


        @PropertyId("anotherBean.anotherInt")
        private TextField anotherIntTextField = new TextField();

        @PropertyId("anotherBean.anotherString")
        private TextField anotherStringTextField = new TextField();

        @PropertyId("anotherBean.anotherString.concat(' ').concat(anotherBean.anotherInt)")
        private TextField anotherStringAndIntTextField = new TextField();
