JavaBeans, JSP, Desktop Apps, and you (well, me)

Greetings.

I trying to figure out if there is any way to implement JavaBeans akin to how they are used on a JSP web page.

On a JSP page, you can create a session bean using the code
<jsp:useBean id="thisBean" scope="session" class="MyBean" /> 
{/code>

I am wondering if stand-alone apps can implement similar *session-lasting* Java objects, ie objects that remain referenceable between different frames and even different threads without the need for File I/O (time consuming) and even worse, database hits.

The truth is I can accomplish my needs by just passing the objects through the frame constructors but this makes the code pretty much non-reusable =/

The app I am building goes through multiple frames each time the program runs. New frames do not sit inside a larger frame like most desktop apps (this was a desired spec from the client)

Thanks.
