Custom BreadCrumb Component

I have a scenario where in i have to initiate nested method binding, ie

<t:datatable value="listOfSomething" var="item">
<h:commandLink action="#{item.getactionpath}"/>

As you can see the each item is having a method "getactionpath".
The "getactionpath" internally returns the method binding to some other managed bean (expression language), ie "getactionpath" could
return "#{customer.loadActSummary}"

Thus my commandlink should actually invoke the action on my "customer" object.

Is it possible to provide some custom method implementation to handle this scenario?

If you use t:dataList instead of t:dataTable, it will work.
I agree. Here's the link:
