About this title
This easy-to-follow, four-color tutorial will guide programmers through an introduction to general component development issues, intermediate level Java programming issues, and the design principles behind the Beans spec. The rest of the book teaches the reader how to develop useful Beans code in each of the Java Beans main API areas. A load of helpful software is found on the CD-ROM.Review:
If production values were everything, How to Program JavaBeans would win the "Best JavaBeans Book Award" hands down. The authors use rich, colorful graphics (like you would find in a textbook) and present a readable perspective on JavaBeans technology, including hands-on programming examples.
Both a solid introduction to the basics of JavaBeans and a practical guide, this text is a good choice for programmers and for managers who are seeking to get a sense of what JavaBeans technology means for the computer industry.
This book is unique because it shows that programming JavaBeans by hand will soon be a thing of the past. Tools like Sybase PowerJ, which is featured in many of the book's screen shots, will soon automate Bean creation.
The authors don't skimp on actual internals of JavaBeans code. Chapters here cover all the basics: event handling, properties, persistence, serialization, and introspection. Working sample Beans for an image button, a clock, a timer, and others illustrate code in action. Finally, the authors discuss where Java fits into the industry, its relationship to ActiveX, and its future, which, as expected, appears very bright. On the whole, this is an excellent book, and though written by a team of authors, manages to cohere into a fine introduction to JavaBeans technology and nuts-and-bolts programming.
