What is the correct word to describe all the methods and variables availabe to a class via inheritance etc?
Is it namespace or something like that? I am sure there is a wonderfully useful noun that I am forgetting.

Hi Steven,
All methods and variables of a class are called members,
whether explicitly or implicitly imported (e.g. java.lang.*),
or available from the scope it exists in.
I guess, if inheritance is involved, you could just call
them inherited members.
