Object-Oriented Java


Great work! Let's review everything that we've learned about object-oriented programming in Java so far.

  • Class: a blueprint for how a data structure should function

  • Constructor: instructs the class to set up the initial state of an object

  • Object: instance of a class that stores the state of a class

  • Method: set of instructions that can be called on an object

  • Parameter: values that can be specified when creating an object or calling a method

  • Return value: specifies the data type that a method will return after it runs

  • Inheritance: allows one class to use functionality defined in another class
