Creating custom form types that can hold multiple values.

I'm currently dynamically rendering forms in my web app by by outputting html based on the formProperty type, using jstl
e.g. <c:if test="${formProperty.getType() == 'string'"> <input type="text"…etc.
I currently use the form type "enum" when I want to render a dropdown list i.e. <select><option>etc. This isn't helpful though when I eant to use the enum values as check boxes or radio buttons or other such types.
So what I basically what to know is how to create a form type that basically acts like an enum, i.e. you can fill in the form properties in activiti designer and access them through formProperty. So I could have one called "checkbox" for example that outputs checkboxes to html.
I hope I'm making sense. I tried creating my own form type and I followed Joram's tutorial but I'm honestly just lost as I'm only new to java and processes in general.
