Beans is to create a bridge between Java and ActiveX. Several software companies
are working on methods of quickly converting ActiveX controls to Java Beans
(IBM's Visual Age, for example, is leading the pack in this area). Whereas
Microsoft hoped to encompass Java into ActiveX, it appears that developers have
different ideas and are churning out a wide variety of conversion tools to pull
ActiveX into Java.
Java Beans are not a cure for all your programming ills, though. Beans
are great for developing interfaces and basic applications, but for working with
JDBC and SQL, text-based hand coding is your best bet.
If you're a visual developer looking to migrate to Java, you'll find that
Java Beans will make the transition much easier. With Java Beans, Sun is proving
that Java is poised to grow and become a powerful force in application

Applets - An applet is a mini-application developed in the Java language.
Applets are commonly downloaded from the Internet and run on the user's machine.
Lately, even full-scale Java applications have been referred to as applets.

application. Common IDE's include Visual Basic, Delphi, and Symantec's Visual
Java - A programming language, developed by Sun Microsystems, which is designed
to be run on any type of operating system. Applications developed in Java are
"Written once, run anywhere".
JDBC - Java Database Connectivity. This allows Java applets/applications to
read/write/modify data in any of the supported JDBC database formats.
Structured Query Language. SQL is a language used to "ask questions
of" a database. Through SQL, an application makes specific requests for
information, and the database relays that information back to the application.
