Java Beans

Dennis Mancl

Java Beans is a very simple component technology based on the Java programming language. Java was created by Sun Microsystems to simplify the task of writing small embedded systems applications and small GUI and animation programs for Web browser environments.

Java Beans are easy to write: no special Java Beans programming tool is necessary. A Java Bean is just a special kind of Java class -- a class that advertises certain properties and public operations. But Java Beans can be assembled into very flexible applications.

This talk will illustrate some of the basic concepts of Java GUI programming, show how Java Beans permit the creation of reusable class-based software components, and give you information on how to get started writing and using Java Beans in your own Web environment.

Dennis Mancl is a member of the object oriented technology consulting group at Bell Labs. He regularly gives talks and runs training in C++ and object oriented technology.
