There is a company that makes a toolkit of components for various platforms, its called "IP*WORKS".

They make a version for Android, but since I am new to Java, I don't exactly know what "Javabeans" are and was wondering if it is possible to use a javabean component to create a library for B4A?

Here is the product page of the toolkit:
