Java components are Java libraries or Java Class libraries, JavaBeans or EJBs that allow you to reuse your own Java code or Java code written by someone else within your Java program or Java application. These Java libraries will include specific functionality that you can integrate into your Java project, perhaps allowing you to support a new feature that a user has requested you to add, such as transferring a file by FTP or HTTP or providing some sort of eCommerce capability to your Web site, such as authorizing a credit card. By reusing your own Java code you save time and improve the modular design and quality of your software. By reusing code written by someone else, you not only save time and effort, you also get to add their knowledge or expertise to your application, enabling you to support new functions and features inside your app that were not possible before.
JavaBeans or Java Beans are reusable software components for Java that can be included in your Java app to provide visual interaction for the user with the form or screen, they typically give your Java application user interface (UI) controls, such as buttons, data entry boxes, text editors or they can be used to present datatables using a Java datagrid bean and draw charts or graphs.
There are also other forms of Java component listed here, such as EJB components or Enterprise Java Beans (EJBs), these Enterprise JavaBeans are server-side non-visual Java components that can be bolted together in a modular manner to provide business logic and other functions in your J2EE environment. For example, we have sophisticated EJBs for adding complex financial calculations or statistical probability functions to your applications.
The Java Class Library products are the most numerous and include Java Classes that are: Java datagrids, Java spreadsheets, Java Math & Stats libraries, Java charting libraries and Java graphing classes, Java calendar or Java Gantt class products for planning and scheduling, Java speech recognition classes, text editing, word processing and spell checking Java classes and much, much more.
Finally you will also find Java Applet and Java Servlet commercial products in this Java product gallery. These Java Applets allow you to present data charts, graphs, barcodes and the Java Servlets provide text & HTML editing, spell checking, file handling, data conversion and PDF file creation functionality.
The Microsoft software platform provides Microsoft developers with an array of Microsoft tools to create solutions for their customers and end users. The Microsoft applications that programmers develop can be created using the MS Visual Studio range of Microsoft development tools, including: MS Visual Basic; MS Visual C# (C-sharp); MS Visual C++ (C Plus Plus), as well as older MS dev languages and MS IDEs, such as MS Visual FoxPro. MS Visual Studio, the Microsoft .NET Framework and the more mature Microsoft COM platform can be extended to provide additional functionality to help MS developers create solutions faster. For example, there is a Microsoft add-in model that allows a Microsoft tool to be extended by other third-party companies, as long as they comply with the Microsoft addin model. As a result you can get a Microsoft extension for Visual Studio to refactor your Visual Basic code to make it easier to read or maintain and to speed up your coding by helping with code layout. Many Visual Studio add-ins are available, including add ins to do C# code generation for you, giving you a faster way to create an application from scratch.
Microsoft Visual Studio software can also be extended beyond the Microsoft controls and Microsoft components that are supplied within the Visual Studio Integrated Development Environment (VS IDE) to give additional functionality. You can get Microsoft .NET components from companies that specialize in writing Internet communications components or eCommerce components that can be programmed like any other Microsoft component and save you a vast amount of time and money in programming your next Microsoft project. Or you can get an advanced Microsoft control for charting that enables you to draw many more styles of charts and graphs than are available inside the standard Microsoft controls in Visual Studio. These Microsoft components are available in many different forms as: Microsoft DLLs or as a Microsoft library, or as a Microsoft ActiveX or COM component supporting the COM object model or for the .NET Framework as Microsoft WinForms controls or ASP.NET controls, or as Microsoft WPF controls for Windows Presentation Foundation applications or as Silverlight controls for Microsoft Silverlight developers to use.
In this Microsoft marketplace you will find lots of different MS UI controls, as well as non-visual components, Microsoft utilities and Microsoft plug-ins to help you program in Microsoft Visual Basic, Visual C++ & Visual C#. You will also find Microsoft visual tools written by ISVs that can be used by MS Access developers or by MS Office programmers as Office components to be embedded inside their MS VBA or VSTO apps. There are also SharePoint tools and SharePoint Web Parts for MOSS bases apps being created by SharePoint developers. Plus for SQL Server you will find Microsoft utility products that allow you to access or bind to your data sources, compare data, manage your data, backup your data efficiently and much more. There are over 1,800 commercial products compatible with Microsoft software shown here in this Microsoft product gallery and many come with free downloads or free software trials for you to use listed in our Microsoft downloads product pages.
