Overloading: bad for boats, but endlessly useful in the programming world. In this post, I'll show you how to take advantage of this core concept in Java.
I seem to have to explain the concept of "classes" to a lot of programming students lately, so I got to thinking that a new blog post may be in order. So, if you happen to be a newbie programmer and are wondering exactly what a class is, tune in and follow along. Please ask questions at the end, too, if anything is not clear...
Understanding the principles of OOP (object-oriented programming) is very important for those who wish to become .NET programmers, since the .NET Framework is built on the premise that everything is an Object. Since C# was created specifically to implement the .NET Framework, it stands to reason that C# is a good language to demonstrate the development of an object from a logical construct to a piece of working code. The code we will develop here can also be modified to work in pretty much any language that supports OOP. So, get your pencils and notepads ready, kids. It's time to build an object!
Object-oriented programming centers around the idea that everything can be represented as an object. Each object has characteristics, represented programmatically as variables, and actions it can perform, represented programmatically with subroutines and functions.
