How to use <logic:iterate> strut tag to loop arrayList that holds other arrayList

Hi, I set in request “arrayListParent” that holds a couple of “arrayListChildren.  I know how to loop through one arraylist using <logic:iterate>, but in this case, I have an arraylist holding other arrayList.  I have pasted my current jsp code on the bottom that uses scripting to display the arraylist and it’s children, that works fine.  But can anyone provide me an example to do that using controls like code directly below here?
Thanks so much for your help,
noijet
 ********* Version with jsp tag controls *******
<logic:iterate id="courses" name="arrayListParent" scope="request"
        type="java.util.ArrayList">    
            ……..//Have no idea how to get arrayListChildren            
</logic:iterate>    
************** Current version in JSP*********
    <%    
    ArrayList arrayListParent = (ArrayList)request.getAttribute( “arrayListParent”);
    ArrayList attendees = new ArrayList();
    Iterator iterator = arrayListParent.iterator();
    Attendee attendee = new Attendee();        
      for (int i = 0; iterator.hasNext();i++) {
          attendees = (ArrayList)iterator.next();
          Iterator iterator2 = attendees.iterator();
          for(int j = 0; iterator2.hasNext();i++) {
              attendee = (Attendee)iterator2.next();              
              %><%= attendee.getLastName()%>,<%=attendee.getFirstName()%>              
              <%              
          }
    }    
    %>

Hi Jaax, thanks for your reply:
  Reading that message: I can do:
<logic:iterate id="parent" name="arrayListParent" scope="request"
        type="java.util.ArrayList">    
           <logic:iterate id="child" name="arrayListChildren"   type="java.util.ArrayList">
                  <bean:define name="child" property="firstname"/> ,  
                  <bean:define name="child" property="firstname"/>  
          </logic:iterate>
</logic:iterate>    
***My question is "arrayListChildren" holds a list of objects of type Child that has properties firstname and lastname, the above code would work right?

Thanks,
noijet
