Passing parms to a Velocity template

I have a custom field that I am passing to a velocity template.

The field is based on MultiCFType <String>, and contacts an array of JIRA issues.

For my View.vm template, I want to display each of the issues in the custom field, as well as retrive the issue summary for display.

Since the values passed to the velocity template are not issue objects, I do not have the ability to pull the summary.

I am looking for a recommendation for either passing the required data to the template or retrived the summary field directly from within the template.

Any sample code would be appreciated

I resolved this issue by getting the issue summary within Java and passing it inside of the map object
