Best book for JavaBeans development?

Postby Kahuna » Sun May 31, 2009 11:55 am

Hi Folks - looking for recommendations for a beginners book on developing JavaBeans?

Happy to take baby steps at first but I want to be building simple beans pretty quickly.

Any suggestions (keep it clean :D )

Don't know about books, there are a few on the market and from what I have read about is that they range from "execrable to excellent", but you can check tutorials online, first go to the source:
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/javabeans/index.html

There is also a list of some available tutorials on the net here:
http://www.roseindia.net/programming/tutorials/JavaBeansTutorials.shtml

Now the real difficulty with JavaBeans is not the Bean API itsel which is quite easy, but the complexity of Swing, especially in multithread environment. If you are experience with Swing, fine, otherwise, that's what you should learn about first.

Hope this helps,

Thanks Patrick - I'll take a look at those resources.
