Object Oriented Principles-Java Tutorial-3

 

Abstraction :

One of the most essential element of object-oriented programming is abstraction. It is a way to manage complexity. For example, we humans manage complexity through abstraction, we do not think of a car as a set thousands of individual parts. We consider it as a well defined object with its unique behaviour.

This allows people to use it without being concerned about the overwhelming complexity of its internal parts like the engine, braking system, transmission etc. Java provides a way to manage such abstrations through hierarchical classifications

Encapsulation :

It is the mechanism that binds code and the data it manipulates, and keeps them safe from external interference and misuse. Java uses classes to provide encapsulation. A class defines the structure and behaviour (data and code) that will be shared by a set of objects.

Objects are instances of classes, each object contains the stucture and behaviour of the class. In a class, the data is defined by member variables and the code is defined by member methods.

Inheritance :

It is the process by which one object acquires the properties of another object. It is important as Java supports hierarchical classification. For example a Ferrari is a classification of a car, a car is four-wheeler and a four-wheeler is a classification of a vehicle.

Without the use of hierarchies a class would have to define all its characteristics explicitly. However, using inheritance, an object only needs to define its unique qualities within its class and can inherit the general qualities from its parent.

Polymorphism :

Polymorphism means ‘many-forms’. It is a feature that allows one interface to be used for a general class of actions. It is used to create a generic interface to a group of related activites, whenever one of the activity is to be performed, the same interface is used. This helps to reduce the complexity and it is the compiler’s responsibility to select the specific action as it applies to each situtation.

Byte Code And Features Of Java – 2

The output of a Java compiler is not an executable code, rather, it is bytecode. Bytecode is a highly optimized set of instructions designed to be executed by Java run-time system, which is  called the Java Virtual Machine(JVM). The fact that Java programs are executed by the JVM helps solve the major problems associated  with web based  programs and provides security and portability.

A Just-in-time(JIT) compiler is a part of the JVM that compiles selected portions of the bytecode into executable come in real time, piece-by-piece, on a demand basis. JIT compiler compiles code as is needed, during execution. Not all the byte code is compiled by JIT, only parts of the code that benifits from compilation are compiled by it the other parts of the byte code are simply interpreted.

Even though such dynamic compilation is applied to bytcode the security and portability features are provided as the JVM is still incharge of the execution environment.

Features of Java :

  • Simple
  • Secure
  • Portable
  • Object-Oriented
  • Robust
  • Multithreaded
  • Architecture-neutral
  • Interpreted
  • High performance
  • Distributed
  • Dynamic

History And Evolution Of Java – 1

Java is first and foremost programming language that inherits the rich heritage of previous programming languages combined with the innovative concepts required by its mission.

Many of Java’s characteristics come from C and C++, Java derives its syntax from C and its object oriented features were influenced by C++.

The creation of C by Dennis Ritche marked the dawn of the modern age of computer languages. It met the short comings of previous programming languages like the assembly language and was widely accepted by programmers. In short, C is a language by and for the programmer. Java inherited this legacy.

C became a dominant programming language during the late 1970s and early 1980s, it is still widely used today. Throughout the history of programming languages, the increasing complexity of programs has driven the need for better ways to handle complexity. Thus C++ was introduced.  C++ invented by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1979 also called as ‘C with classes’ extends C by adding object oriented features.  It inherits all the features, attributes and benifits of C. Using C++ understanding and maintaining large complex programs was made possible.

By the end of 1980s and the early 1990s, the Internet and the World Wide Web became critical and the revolution in programming began by the creation of Java.

Java was created by James Gosling, Patrick Naughton, Chris Warth, Ed Frank, and Mike Sheridan at Sun Microsystems,Inc in 1991. It was initially called as ‘OAK,’ but was renamed ‘Java’ in 1995.The environmental change that prompted towards Java was the need for a platform independent programs that can be distributed over the internet.
