Java is another term for coffee (The stuff you drink)

Coffee is made from Beans.

A bean is a single entity, or Java Class/Object.. whatever.

They are building blocks to true Java OO applications.

Go to the book store, Java for Dummies or go online. Read some examples on this great forum.

You will not lack for resources.
