Multiple javabeans instances

Hi everyone,
I am just wondering about how javabeans (and objects I really) are typically used. Lets say, as a hypothetical scenario I have a computer program that deals with lots of logged in users. Would it be appropriate to hold loads of user javabean objects in some form of collection?
Basically what I am wondering is whether you are supposed to use classes and javabeans to create large numbers of objects held in memory. How many simple objects can a modern computer handle easily.
I'm just wondeirng if there is a different model. Maybe you're not really supposed to use a bugger load of objects or java beans. But then how else do you store representations in memory?
A big ol fankoo to anyone who cares to share any advice.
Kindest Regards

Hold on, pardner.
We don't take to kindly to multiple posts 'round these parts. It just makes it plain confusin' to follow a conversation.
Let's continue this conversation o'er in the intermediate forum.
