Java Beans Course Prerequisites

  1. A working knowledge of Java and its core APIs
  2. Writing and compiling basic Java programs using a text editor
  3. Knowing the mechanics of a Java compiler such as the compiler that comes with the Java Development Kit (JDK).

Platform support

  1. The JavaBeans Development Kit (BDK), which is used extensively throughout this course, is currently available for the (Solaris 8.0, 9.0, 10.0) / Red Hat Linux and Windows 2000/XP platforms.
  2. The Java Development Kit (JDK) is available for the Linux/Unix and Windows 2000 platforms.
  3. The JDK contains a Java compiler and a Java archiving tool.

As Beans become widely available, we will see more developers using them to build applications. But before these applications can be built, someone has to build the components. That is what this course is all about. JavaBeans is here now, and programmers must have the information at hand to begin creating components. So if you are ready to get right into the techniques and concepts used by the JavaBeans architecture, and if you want to understand the underpinnings of the technology that makes it work, this course is for you.
