Objects: Revisited

  • James T. Streib

Part of the Undergraduate Topics in Computer Science book series (UTICS)


Objects are revisited in this chapter. The sending and returning an object to and from a method is illustrated using contours. Overloaded constructors and methods are discussed and the reserved word this is introduced. Local, instance, and class constants and variables along with class methods are shown using contour diagrams. Two complete programs, one with focus on overloaded methods and another with class data members and methods are included.
