Properties

Introduction

Properties provide a way to get and set the values that characterize an object. A business application could have a Customer class with properties .name, .address and .id. A video game could have a GameObject class with properties .position, .velocity and .health.

Compared to Methods

  • Methods can take parameters.
  • In practice, methods are not systematically enumerated and invoked.
  • Methods may perform substantial calculations and/or I/O.
  • Methods are about actions and computations; properties are about inspection or characteristics.
