Try for more information. JavaBeans are classes that expose their properties and methods in a certain way and are Serializable.

This is an example of an extremely simple JavaBean. If you load it into the BDK you will be able to view and edit the "name" property.

Hi Sunil -
Beans are the Java term for component development. They mirror similar constructs like OLE/ActiveX components in that they expose a class as collection of properties. Visual properties like size and color of course included but it's possible to extend the model and treat behavior as a property.
I've taught the subject for a couple of years now, so I'm accustomed to asking: you sure you're not talking about Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs)? These are quite different; they are somewhat similar in concept to regular old JavaBeans, but that's about it. Just in case that's what you really want, visit the EJB forum for more.
