Quick comment on what Matti has suggested.

We have just put in place in one of our projects the NestedProperties in combination with FormBinder and it works perfectly.
One minor detail is eventually if you want to "automate" the binding and addition of nested properties. In such as case, here is a hint on how
to proceded. Here is an automatic way to add nested properties….

BeanItem<Person> personItem = new BeanItem<Person>(this.person);
    try {
      Map<String,String> beanMap = MyBeanUtils.recursiveDescribe(person);
      for (Entry<String, String> entry : beanMap.entrySet()) {
        personItem.addItemProperty(entry.getKey(), new NestedMethodProperty(this.person, entry.getKey()));
    } catch (Exception e1) {
      throw new RuntimeException("Exception not handled: " + e1, e1);

where MyBeanUtils is an adapatation of the following thread http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6133660/recursive-beanutils-describe

hope this may help.
