Object orientation is unavoidable in most programming languages like Java, C sharp or Python. If you are using these programming languages, you basically can’t do anything without thinking about classes and objects. So let’s shine more light on the topic and discuss about common misconceptions regarding key elements of this programming language.
Class and Object Introduction
Sharing information using any object-oriented programming language requires knowledge about the basics of coding. Object oriented programming is different from other languages in a couple of ways. The biggest difference is the way that information is distributed and stored. In object-oriented database programs, there are two main elements that define it.
Those are class and object. To further understand class thinks of it as a blueprint, a definition of what something is, where “something” is an object. The class consists of precise information regarding the attributes of the object. A class represents both visible and invisible information. It defines what object should be and what it is used for. Classes represent attributes and behaviors of an object. It makes the rules on how the information will behave and what it will represent. In object-oriented database programming, both class and object are important and depend on one another for this system to work. One cannot exist without another.
An object is much simpler to explain, as it is a piece of data that in combination with class constructs data, video or photo file. Not only that it may store hypermedia, like graphics and videos, but it can also store more complex data such as cad and geographical satellite information. Each object has a unique id, and that is what makes object oriented database usage so great, you can access every single object without obstructing the pattern and other objects. So with every object having a sort of identity on its own, it’s much easier to access, transport and use that data than in other programming languages.
