Java - Understanding beans

A bean is simply a class that adheres to the following rules.

  • Implements
  • A public no-argument constructor
  • Has getters and setters methods

Let's say you've created a class called (in Eclipse in this example). 


This bean will print "John Doe".

package my.pkg;

public class Hello implements {
	private static final long serialVersionUID = -3774654564564563L;
	private String name;
    public void myName() {
    	name = "John Doe";
    // getter
    public String getName() {
        return name;
    // setter
    public void setName(String name) { = name;
