The two words that you have used have no connection with Java as far as I can think of.

If you really are keen on knowing more on Java, then this is the best place for you.

Hi Sameera,

- Encapsulation is a fundamental principle of Object Oriented Programming. This means that data and processes on theses data are built together in a "black box" called an object. The point is to be able to change how an object do its task without changing how you call its processes (actually named "methods"). You may read a detailed answer here

- Polymorphism is also a fundamental principle. This basically means that several methods can have the same name despite they don't do exactly the same thing. The point is to hide implementation details to the user and provide a unique semantic along a class hierarchy. You may read a detailed answer here.

"From the get-go" is an expression that means "From the beginning." Otherwise, neither "getgo" nor "gitgo" are words in English.
