Writting Nested Properties

I'm having issues getting values out of my nested beans.
The structure is like this. I put a subBean into a topBean. I put the topBeans into a Vector and I put that into the request.

in my JSP I get the vector out of session and iterate through it, getting out topBeans. From time to time I want values from inside of those subBeans though. How can I get them without a bunch of scriptlets in the page?

My current clode looks like this:

this however, obviously, is not working. What other tags can I consider? Am I using these improperly? To my thinking that "nested:nest" tag needs a "name" tag to work properly. How can I make sure it's getting it from topBean.

Just to clarify, when I use the <bean:write name='topBean' property='valueName' /> on it's own here I get the Bean type on the screen, not the value I'm looking for.

thanks for your help

alright, I got what I needed.
I defined the bean while it was iterating through
