Java Beans

Java Programming - JavaBeans

The Java(TM) Class Libraries, Volume 2: java.applet, java.awt, java.beans (2nd Edition)

As the definitive reference to the Java 1.1.2 version class libraries from the creators of the Java technology at Sun, this book is an essential resource for both beginner and experienced Java programmers.

This volume provides comprehensive reference documentation for the development of applets, user interfaces, and Java beans. The information is presented in an easy-to-use, dictionary-like format. The packages covered in Volume 2 are: java.applet, java.awt, java.awt.datatransfer, java.awt.event, java.awt.image, java.awt.peer, and java.beans.

The extensive class and member descriptions contain details crucial for developing robust and professional applets and applications. Each description is supplemented by an example that demonstrates the class or member in a relevant context. The 20,000 lines of code in over 350 examples facilitate learning-by-example and provide useful code fragments for your projects. more >>

Developing Java Beans (Java Series)

Java Beans is the most important new development in Java this year. Beans is the next generation of Java technology that not only adds features the language lacked, but also lets Java programs interoperate with a number of development environments. The initial release includes a bridge for Microsoft's ActiveX/COM; future releases will include bridges for Netscape's LiveConnect and IBM's OpenDoc.

Since it's a "component architecture" for Java, Beans can be used in graphical programming environments, like Borland's JBuilder, or IBM's VisualAge for Java. This means that someone can use a graphical tool to connect a lot of Beans together and make an application, without actually writing any Java code -- in fact, without doing any programming at all. Graphical development environments let you configure components by specifying aspects of their visual appearance (like the color or label of a button) in addition to the interactions between components (what happens when you click on a button or select a menu item). more >>
