Bean == ?

Can anyone quickly map the Java bean terms (EJB, entity bean, session bean, etc.) to .NET concepts?

There isn't an exact mapping. The .NET framework doesn't specify how to build enterprise apps to the level of EJB.

The closest approximation would be a class hosted in COM+.

I always thought your basic Bean in Java is just compensating for the fact that you don't have Properties.

As for EJB and stuff, that's just a framework that doesn't have a 1:1 mapping to the .NET framework.
