OBJECT-ORIENTED
  1. Context:
    Metadata


    Definition:
    A programming or data modeling methodology that utilizes the notion of classes and their properties. Members (or instances) of a class share the same propeties-for example, color or weight (however, note that although members of a class all share the same properties, the values of those properties do not need to be the same). Classes can contain subclasses, members of which inherit the properties of the parent or "superclass."
