Definition of Object

Definition: In Object Oriented Programming, a class defines a type of variable.

An object doesn't exist until an instance of the class has been created; the class is just a definition. When the object is physically created, space for that object is allocated in RAM. It is possible to have multiple objects created from one class.

Examples: Once my application gains access to the screen object, it can start displaying the results.
