Build your own bean? Or use one that's ready-made? The Awesome Power of Java Beans provides the details on both. Either way, the power of Java Beans is awesome: once created, your beans run anywhere--even masquerading as an ActiveX control.

The Awesome Power of Java Beans shows you how to use not only BeanBox, but also such tools as VisualAge WebRunner, JBuilder and PowerJ. And there's a wide-ranging selection of completed and tested beans for you to use in your applications.

If you're a Java programmer, teacher or student, or if you design software systems using Java Beans, this book will be a valuable resource.

  • A complete description of the JavaBeans model
  • Bean design and detailed implementation
  • "Glasglow" and Infobus specs
  • Writing beans as applets or converting to applets
  • Converting your ActiveX Control to a bean
  • Convert your bean to an ActiveX Control
  • Running it in VB or Internet Explorer
  • Custom property editors and customizers
  • Unique source of useful beans

This book contains general purpose beans for

  • charting
  • plotting
  • printing
  • spreadsheet
  • image loading
  • image display
  • image manipulation
