JavaBeans possess the following properties...
-Private fields, which cannot be called by other classes
-Public Getters/Setters to get access to private fields of the JavaBeans
-Other Utility methods

But Java Objects is any instance of a Java class. Some may not possess the above properties of JavaBeans, while some may. In the other words, JavaBeans is a subset of Java objects...

Hope it helps...
