Classes and Objects

  • Objects are collections of related code and data
  • Everything in Java and Groovy can be considered an object
  • A class is a higher level description of an object.
    • For example a 10-Q is a specification developed by the SEC and can be thought of as a "Class". A quarterly report issued by IBM for Q2 2005 can be thought of as an object of the class 10-Q.
