class
Jump to user comments
1. programming The prototype for an object in an
procedural language. A class may also be considered to be a
set of objects which share a common structure and behaviour.
The structure of a class is determined by the classvariables which represent the state of an object of that
class and the behaviour is given by a set of methods
associated with the class.
Classes are related in a class hierarchy. One class may be
a specialisation (a "subclass") of another (one of its
"superclasses") or it may be composed of other classes or it
may use other classes in a client-server relationship. A
class may be an abstract class or a concrete class.
