Hi,

Can anybody give me general definitions for the following object oriented concepts :- Encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism, abstraction, decomposition, cohesion, coupling.
And then relate this concepts specifically with java language with examples ?

I know about these terms but have no clear definition for interview purpose. So any help from you guys is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

For each of those terms there is a ton of material out there. What exactly don't you get?

Have you tried looking these terms up in a book, on google, or the wikipedia? I'm sure any of those would have the answers you are seeking, and would be much faster than waiting for someone here to do the exact same thing and then paste the results here.

If you do that and still have questions, by all means come back and ask for clarification. But most folks here will put as much effort into answering your question as you did asking it...and so far, you haven't shown any effort at all.

And possibly more accurate. If somebody answers quickly, they might inadvertently make a mistake in their reply.

It would be a good idea to write down what you think those terms mean. Then you will get some helpful replies.
