instance of a class. A software bundle of related variables and methods used to model real world objects. It has 2 defining characteristics - STATE and BEHAVIOR. State is stored as variables and behavior is represented using methods
Indicates that a variable or method belongs to a class, rather than to any object created from the class.
Used to instantiate (create) an object of that class
A software object's state is stored in a
It is basically a behavior. A class can contain many methods. It is in methods where the logics are written, data is manipulated and all the actions are executed.
allows a class to be a subclass of a superclass and thereby inherit public and protected variables and methods of the superclass. A parent/child relationship.

Application Programming Interface
What does the term API stand for?
creating an object with the "new" operator, eg. str1 = new String("hello");
Object-Oriented Programs
Create Classes
Graphical Interfaces (GUIs)
Object-Oriented programming was used most frequently for two major types of applications which are
Are all object-oriented programs written to use GUI?
No (not all object-oriented programs are written to use GUIs)
What is object oriented programming?
The idea is creating data classes. It allows a programmer to create any new data type that is not already defined in the language itself representing objects.
Data encapsulation
Hiding internal states and requiring the interaction to be performed through the object's methods.
First benefit?
Modularity: The source code for an object can be written and maintained independently of the source code for other objects. Once created, an object can be easily passed around inside the system.
Second benefit?
Information hiding: By interacting only with an object's methods, the details of its internal implementation remain hidden from the outside world.
Third benefit?
Code re-use: If an object already exists (perhaps written by another software developer), you can use that object in your program. This allows specialists to imple…
Fourth benefit?
Pluggability and debugging ease: If a particular object turns out to be problematic, you can simply remove it from your application and plug in a different object as its replacement. This is analogous to fi…
What is an interface?
A group of related methods with empty bodies. To implement this interface, the name of your class would change (to a particular brand of bicycle, for example, such as ACMEBicycle), and you'd use the implem…
What Is a Package?
AA package is a collection of classes and interfaces that provides a high-level layer of access protection and name space management. Conceptually you can think of packages as being similar to different folders on …

A precise specification of what the software should do.
Design Stage : identifies the components(classes) to be used and the relationships among them.
What is the difference between design state and the implementation stage in the development of software?
The state of a class consists of the values of its fields.
What is the difference between the state and the behavior of a class?
What is an abstract data type?
I a specification of the type's operations: what an instance of that type can do.
Public: are globally accessible.
Difference between public, protected and private?
abstract data type vs abstract class
A java abstract class is a class with at least one abstract method and no body.
Constructor vs Method
A Constructor is a member function of a class that is used to create instances of that class. It has the same name of the class itself, has no return type and is invoked using the new operator.

what is an enum type.
The enum type is a type defined with the enum keyword that list by name each possible value for the type.
What is the difference between composition vs aggregation.
Composition, is when a type is composed of another type, the complete existence of that component type's objects is controlled by the composing type's object; The components are uniquely bound to it and canno…
Inclusion Polymorphism
It refers to the ability an object to invoke a method that it inherits;
ad hoc polymorphism
overloading and coercion are two special kinds of ad-hoc polymorphism
Coercion Polymorphism : ad-hoc
Occurs when a value of one type is implicitly converted to a value of another type when the context requires that other type.
Overloading Polymorphism : ad-hoc
It means integer addition when used in form 22 + 33; it means floating point addition when used in the form 2.2 + 3.3; and it means string concatenation when used in the form + ", esq."
UML Notation

Similar to the "this" keyword you can use the _______ keyword to refer directly to a superclass
Liskov Substitution Principle
Determine whether a subclass is a subtype
Protected Access
No outside classes can use this data field, except descendant classes. Defeats the purpose of OOP.
Type cast to the type of an ancestor class. Is usually done automatically.
Type cast to the type of a descendant class; may cause runtime errors.
Similar to an abstract class except all its methods are implicitly abstract which means they must be implemented by the class that "implements" the interface. A class can implement as many Interfaces as it li…

The source code of a class determines the structure and behavior (the fields and methods) of each of the objects of that class.
source code needs to be translated into machine code before it can be executed.
Return value
methods enable us to get information from an object via a method call (we can use methods either to change an object's state or to find out about its state).
