An object class is a formal definition of a specific kind of objects that can be stored in the directory. An object class is a distinct, named set of attributes that represents something concrete, such as a user, a computer, or an application.

A formal definition of a specific kind of object that can be stored in the directory. An object class is a distinct, named set of attributes that represents something concrete, such as a user, a printer, or an application. The terms object class and class are used interchangeably.
A category for Apple event objects that share specific characteristics listed in an object class definition in the Apple Event Registry: Standard Suites. Among these characteristics are properties, element classes, and Apple events that can specify objects of that class. An object class is specified in an object specifier record by a keyword-specified descriptor record with the keyword keyAEDesiredClass whose data handle refers to either a constant or an object class ID.
Entries in a Directory Service belong to an Object Class to indicate their type and characteristics; e.g., Object Class 'person' (see section 2.1.1).
The set of attributes that describe an object, or some aspect of an object, stored in an LDAP directory.
a category of objects, and it typically provides both mandatory and optional attributes for particular objects
a collection of attributes that you use to define an entry
a feature class or table that has been registered with the geodatabase
a group of attributes that define the structure of an entry
an abstraction over a set of objects with common attributes and the services (operations) provided by each object
a table in the geodatabase that stores nonspatial data
In LDAP, a definition of a type of object that can be stored in the network directory. Each object class consists of a set of attributes. The attributes can be either mandatory or optional. The complete set of object classes for a directory defines it schema.
Defines an entry type in an LDAP directory by defining which attributes are contained in the entry.
A named group of attribute s. When you want to assign attributes to an entry, you do so by assigning to that entry the object classes that hold those attributes. All objects associated with the same object class share the same attributes.
In object-oriented (OO) programming, a grouping of objects that can be described in terms of the attributes its members have in common. For example, all of the savings accounts at a bank are instances of the class of "savings account." See OO.
Collection of directory entries of the same type.
In LDAP, an object class defines the collection of attributes that can be used to define an entry. All LDAP entries in the directory are typed. That is, each entry belongs to object classes that identify the type of data represented by the entry.
A member of a class library that provides characteristics for other objects. Software objects can inherit characteristics from an object class. For example, an object class can exist for "person". If an application developer wanted to create an object "mail carrier", they can inherit the "person" object class and add "mail carrier" characteristics to create the "mail carrier" object.
