assignment operator

In JSF, is there an assignment operator? For instance, the user inputs a value with this bit of code:

Now that I have the user's value, I want to assign that value to another object. Can I do something like this?

After this line is executed both objects will contain the same value?

Thank you,

I'm not sure about the assignment operator. You can probably do it like this:

The beans (minus the imports) look like this:

On the other hand: why not doing the assignment from the backing bean?

Thank you Roroco. I can't do the assignment in the backing bean beacuse they are different objects, neither has access to the other's instance object. ...unless you know a way that I am not thinking about.
I agree. Here's the link:
