encapsulation : Java Glossary


Encapsulation means detecting common patterns in your code and writing code to handle that function once and putting it in an air-tight capsule so that other programs are unaware of how it works inside. The benefits are:

You can write encapsulated code in almost any language, even assembler. Some languages, though, like Java make it much easier.

When in doubt, encapsulate.
