I searched amazon.com and found a few books on Java bean. All are quite old: 1997, 1998 etc. Does anyone know a good Java bean book?
Thanks.
Merry Xmas.

Have you already noticed The Enterprise JavaBeans Section of the JavaRanch Bunkhouse?

Thanks Dirk.
I am looking for generic "Java Bean" info, not "Enterprise Javabean" that has little to do with "Java Bean".

In all fairness, you did post this in the J2EE and EJB Forum.
Are you talking about the reusable GUI component JavaBeans, or the JavaBeans as known in the JSP Specification?
If it is the former than you will probably be stuck with an old book since Java GUI components have not been a popular book topic in recent years.
If it is the latter than I would say there is not enough to write about for a complete book. Pick any book on JSP and it should sufficiently cover JavaBeans.

Thank Chris for the info. I was wondering why there were few new books on JavaBeans (not EJB).
I did post my question on Java General Forum and Dirk moved it here.
