Hi, i come from MS world with COM architecture. I am wonder what's the difference
between a Bean and a simple java class that define an object. I know bean
is component for multiple platform uses but... a java class is java code
so it is also multiple platform don't you? Perhaps the difference is that
your bean has to be compile only once to run under Windows or Linux but...
isn't it the same for other java class? The only one difference i could
see for the moment is transaction support.

I probably miss spmething somewhere... so explanations are welcome.
