JavaBeans An Architecture for Reusable Software Components

JavaBeans An Architecture for Reusable Software Components

This material is a tutorial on JavaBeans, the platform-neutral component architecture for Java. The tutorial briefly introduces reusable software components in general, and reviews the basic concepts of JavaBeans through a practical example. The example takes the Timer class that was developed in a previous View Source article, The Java AWT Delegation Event Model, and converts it into a JavaBeans component (a "bean"). Finally, the tutorial shows how to develop a bean from scratch and test it using the Bean Development Kit (BDK).
