A quick Google will find you many subtly different definitions. Wikipedia doesn't even have Encapsulation as a topic ... it's mentioned along with Information Hiding. See if what they say rings true to you. And follow that link to people who think there should be more distinction. [ November 11, 2006: Message edited by: Stan James ]
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
