Object-Oriented Language (OOL)

Definition - What does Object-Oriented Language (OOL) mean?

Object-oriented language (OOL) is a high-level computer programming language that implements objects and their associated procedures within the programming context to create software programs.

Object-oriented language uses an object-oriented programming technique that binds related data and functions into an object and encourages reuse of these objects within the same and other programs.

Techopedia explains Object-Oriented Language (OOL)

Object-oriented language was primarily designed to reduce complexity in typical procedural languages through data binding and encapsulation techniques. In object-oriented language, the objects created provide limited or no access to other functions or methods within the program. This enables only authorized or inherited methods/functions to access a particular object.

Object-oriented language typically supports the following features, at minimum:
  • The ability to create classes and their associated objects
  • Encapsulation
  • Inheritance
Java, C++ and Smalltalk are popular examples of object-oriented languages.
