How Inheritance is importance in Object Oriented Programming?

One of the important features in the Object Oriented Programming is Reusability, as we said above that it is always good way to reuse the already existing functionality rather than trying to create the same one again and again. By reusing the properties not only saves the time and money but also increases the reliability.

An advantage of inheritance is that modules with sufficiently similar interfaces can share a lot of code, reducing the complexity of the program.

The Benefits of Inheritance

  • Subclasses provide specialized behaviors from the basis of common elements provided by the superclass. Through the use of inheritance, programmers can reuse the code in the superclass many times.
  • Programmers can implement superclasses called abstract classes that define “generic” behaviors. The abstract superclass defines and may partially implement the behavior but much of the class is undefined and unimplemented. Other programmers fill in the details with specialized subclasses.

Happy Coding 🙂
