    How can I set the writable properties of a bean?

      Hi folks,

      I've a little problem and hope that somebody can help. My application displays properties of an entity bean. The user can edit some properties (h:inputText), some of theam are read-only (h:outputText). At the top of the page there is a drop-down-list. When the user selects an item from this list, some properties of the displayed entity bean shall be changed.
      Now my problem: Only the read-only properties are changed. I think that's because JSF has a "browser" data model and just accepts changes made on read-only properties.

      Is there a known workaround, technique or setting to enable my component to overwrite entity bean properties?

      Thanks a lot
