How Java is claimed as Object Oriented Language?
Posted by Jeganathan S on November 09, 2000 at 4:05 AM
Any language which supports Multiple Inheritance, Polymorphism,
encapsulation and other object oriented features comes under
Object Oriented Languages.
Microsoft Visual Basic comes under Object based languages, even
Java doesn't support multiple inheritance(don't say that it supports
via interface - in Java u can bring the effect of multiple inheritance
and not exactly the multiple inheritance). But I know that no
languages supports all the Object Oriented features, but even then
there r some prime Object Oriented features that any language
should support to be claimed as Object Oriented, what r the features.
Can anyone give the Object Oriented rating for VB,C++ & Java and
also if u can list out of features that should be supported by
any Object Oriented Languages.
What i want exactly is based on which factors languages r
categorized as either Objected Oriented and Object Based and who
framed these standards.
