Template-based reads and nested properties

The API that allows for searching the space seems to be very limiting when the object hierarchy begins to grow deeper. Assume an Employee class that has a property name "homeAddress" of type Address. How would you create a tuple that can search for all Employees who live in the 43082 zip code?

Thanks Shay. I had read the Parent-Child document before. I guess I was just hoping that an alternative approach exists when your parent/child relationship is a simple value object.

What if my property is not an object with sub-properties, but rather an array. For example, if I want to search for all blogs with the tag "gigaspaces":

class BlogEntry {
    public String tags;

Based on what I read, is it true that I should construct a Tag class and it would have to have a relationship to the BlogEntry that it belongs to?

The other option would be to use the approach described here: http://www.gigaspaces.com/wiki/displa...

looks like the page is removed. Could you tell me what is the other option when I have an array Object in the class ?
