JavaBeans technology is the component architecture for the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SE). Components (JavaBeans) are reusable software programs that you can develop and assemble easily to create sophisticated applications. JavaBeans technology is based on the JavaBeans specification
A component like any other with the exception that it is written in Java. Therefore the component can run on any machine with a Java Virtual Machine (Java VM). Each JavaBean has a set of properties that clients can get or set; these properties can be either single objects or arrays.
Independent Java program modules that work together at run time. JavaBeans components can be run remotely in a Distributed Computing Environment using Sun's own Remote Method Invocation or the Object Management Group's CORBA object standard.
An object model being developed by SunSoft that is targeted to interoperate with a variety of other object models, including COM and CORBA. See also Common Object Request Broker Architecture; Component Object Model.
an object orientated programming interface from Sun Microsystems that enables you to build reusable applications or program building blocks called components, which can be deployed in a network on any major operating system platform
a reusable software component architecture, like VBX (Visual Basic Extensions) or OCX (OLE Controls). JavaBeans components - beans - are separate code modules, written at the source level, that an application developer can use to combine into larger applications. You can make any Java class into a bean just by changing the class to adhere to the JavaBeans specification.
An application component; a re-usable compiled Java. Often incorporated into JSP pages in compiled form
a portable, platform-independent component model written in the Java programming language. JavaBeans's components are reusable software components that can be manipulated visually in a builder tool. (p. 72)
A component architecture for Java programs that enables Java programmers to package Java programs in a container for increased interoperability with other objects and improved security.
As defined for Java by Sun Microsystems, a portable, platform-independent, reusable component model.
JavaBeans is an object-oriented programming interface from Sun Microsystems that lets you build re-useable applications or program building blocks called components that can be deployed in a network on any major operating system platform. Like Java applets, JavaBeans components (or "Beans) can be used to give World Wide Web pages (or other applications) interactive capabilities such as computing interest rates or varying page content based on user or browser characteristics.
n. A platform-independent, software component technology for building reusable Java components called "beans." Once built, these beans can be made available for use by other software engineers or can be used in Java applications. Also, using JavaBeans, software engineers can manipulate and assemble beans in a graphical drag-and-drop development environment.
JavaBeans is the component architecture for the Java programming language. "A Java Bean is a reusable software component that can be manipulated visually in a builder tool." ... "Individual Java Beans will vary in the functionality they support, but the typical unifying features that distinguish a Java Bean are: Support for "introspection" so that a builder tool can analyze how a bean works Support for "customization" so that when using an application builder a user can customize the appearance and behavior of a bean. Support for " events" as a simple communication metaphor that can be used to connect up beans. Support for " properties", both for customization and for programmatic use. Support for " persistence", so that a bean can be customized in an application builder and then have its customized state saved away and reloaded later." 2
A portable, platform-independent reusable component model. A component that conforms to this model is called a bean.
An object-oriented API created by Sun Microsystems for developers to create re-useable Java applications or components.
Javabeans is a a portable, platform-independent reusable component model written in Java. See also beans. More at http://java.sun.com/products/javabeans
Similar to Microsoft's ActiveX, this Sun Microsystems' technology enables external applications access each other's services.
In Java, a portable, platform-independent reusable component model.
Javabeans are small reusable software objects created in Java.
An emerging specification for Java based components that can be assembled to create applications.
A portable, platform-independent reusable component model. Beans can be combined to create an application. JavaBeans allows developers to create reusable software components that can then be assembled together using visual application builder tools such as IBM's Visual Age for Java.
An architecture that defines a portable, platform-independent, reusable component model. Beans are the basic unit in this model. You can deploy beans in a network on any major operating system. See also EJB.
A set of object-oriented programming tools created by Sun Microsystems, based on the Java programming language. JavaBeans is used to create small component programs, call beans, that perform specific functions; an interest-rate calculator, for example, or a simple drawing program.
Code segments used to create Java applications; platform independent, enabling the code to be run on any computer or operating system. Also called beans. 15.35
