dynaValidatorForm Bean Parent/children config question

I have a jsp page which contains parent info input fields section and child info section. the contents are different in two sections. if user have more than one child, then click add more children button will expend the form and append one extra child section after the first one.

The struts-config.xml is as following. As you see, the <form-property name="children" type="ChildFormBean[]" /> is referencing "ChildFormBean" which currently is implemented as a standard hard-coded java bean. I am wondering is it possible I can also define the "ChildFormBean" in the struts-config.xml as a dynaActionForm bean and be referenced in the "selectPCP" DynaValidator" form bean ?

<form-property name="EmpSSN" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="EmpFirstName" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="EmpLastName" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="EmpSuffix" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="EmpDob" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="EmpGender" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="EmpHomePhone" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="EmpWorkPhone" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="EmpPCP" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="EmpPcpName" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="EmpCurPat" type="java.lang.String" />

<form-property name="SpsSSN" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="SpsFirstName" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="SpsLastName" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="SpsSuffix" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="SpsDob" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="SpsGender" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="SpsPCP" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="SpsPcpName" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="SpsCurPat" type="java.lang.String" />

<form-property name="children" type="ChildFormBean[]" />

Yes, I tried. It did not work. That's why I have to define the ChildFormBean as the standard Java Bean.
I agree. Here's the link:
