  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
    A  {component  architecture}  for  the  {Java} 
  programming  language,  developed  initially  by  {Sun},  but  now 
  available  from  several  other  vendors.  JavaBeans  components 
  are  called  "{beans}". 
  JavaBeans  allows  developers  to  create  reusable  software 
  components  that  can  then  be  assembled  together  using  visual 
  application  builder  tools  including  {Sybase}'s  {PowerJ}, 
  {Borland}'s  {JBuilder},  {IBM}'s  {Visual  Age  for  Java}, 
  {SunSoft}'s  {Java  Workshop}  and  {Symantec}'s  {Visual  Cafe}. 
  JavaBeans  support  Introspection  (a  builder  tool  can  analyze 
  how  a  Bean  works),  Customisation  (developers  can  customise  the 
  appearance  and  behaviour  of  a  Bean),  Events  (Beans  can 
  communicate),  Properties  (developers  can  customise  and  program 
  with  Beans(?))  and  Persistence  (customised  Beans  can  be  stored 
  and  reused).
