Hi all,
When creating javabeans for using in jsp,is it good to create a single large bean for more jsp's to use or keep the bean small for two-three jsp's,which is performance wise better option.
Thanks in advance

Performance-wise, it's usually better not to use Java at all. What Java is giving you is productivity.
You're far better off breaking up the project into beans based on functionality than on trying to guess where the bottlenecks will be (experience has shown repeatedly that they'll be somewhere else anyway).
Only if you actually SEE performance problems AND you've MEASURED to find out WHERE they are should you start warping the program structure and then only to the extent needed to solve the problem.
It's much easier to optimize a working program with a good logical structure than to repair a broken "optimized" program.
