A characteristic that may take on only one value, e.g. 0 or 1.
A distinctive feature of an object. In mapping and Geographic Information System (GIS) applications, the objects are points, lines, or polygons that represent features such as sampling locations, section corners (points); roads and streams (lines); lakes, forest and soil types (polygons). These attributes can be further divided into classes such as tree species (Douglas fir and ponderosa pine) for forest types and paved and gravel for road types. Multiple attributes are generally associated with objects that are located on a single map layer.
data that describes geographic features in a GIS database (e.g. the attributes of a field might include soil type, crop cover, insect population, etc).
In SGML, a qualifier within the opening tag for an element which specifies a value for some named property of that element. In an object-oriented database, a named property of an object which not only holds information about a particular instance of an object, but also encapsulates behavior (such as integrity constraints and a default value) that is true of all instances of the class of objects.

A font characteristic (such as Bold, Italic, etc.) created by hilighting a font and clicking on a button. Font characteristics created in this way may not print correctly to an IMAGESETTER. Instead of, for example, making a font bold by hilighting it and using the "Bold" attribute, you should choose the bold version of the font from your Font menu.
A numeric and/or text description of a spatial entity (e.g., attributes of a parcel might include address, owner's name, and property value). Attribute data is typically stored in tabular format.
A characteristic of a person or other identifiable entity. An attribute usually fulfills a use-condition in Akenti. Stakeholders most commonly impose the use-condition that a user must belong to a particular group. A potential user would have to demonstrate group membership by obtaining an attribute certificate to that effect.
A named value or relationship that exists for some or all instances of some entity and is directly associated with that instance.
In Entity-Relationship modeling, an identifiable characteristic of an entity. For example, lastName can be an attribute of an Employee entity. An attribute typically corresponds to a column in a database table. A column-In a relational database, is the dimension of a table that holds values for a particular attribute. For example, a table that contains employee records might have a column titled LAST_NAME that contains the values for each employee's last name.
A characteristic that describes a Feature. Attributes are pieces of information that describe a point, line or polygon.
a characteristic; students are asked to group objects according to such attributes as color, size, shape, or other identifiable characteristics.
The property a unit has of being either bad or good. That is, the quality characteristic of a unit is either within the specified requirements or it is not.
In HTML, an attribute is the named component of an object or element with a specific value, requirement, or default status. Attributes give an element its unique characteristics. In Rational Rose, an attribute is congruous to a property of a COM component. Properties and attributes are intended to hold data that needs to be available programmatically. An example would be a balance of a bank account component. They are published as part of the component's interface and therefore are available to foreign applications and components.
A characteristic that describes a person, thing, or event.
A quality of an entity; a piece of an entity's description

For example, the clock speed of a processor chip is an attribute of a group that describes that chip. See also Management Information Format.
A feature of an object or class. The attributes of a class essentially define the properties of that class. Examples.
An attribute is a logical data value of a specified type in a class which is inherent to an object. Each object of the class separately holds a value of the type.        [           Boundary-Control-Entity-Schema The boundary-control-entity-schema describes a three layer architecture. The boundary layer is the user interface, control decides what to do with the information gathered from the user interface, and entity holds the data. Branch A branch is an element in a state machine where a single trigger leads to more than one possible outcome, each with its own guard condition.
A property of a data object that can be specified in a type declaration statement. These properties determine how the data object can be used in a program. Most attributes can be alternatively specified in statements. For example, the DIMENSION statement has the same meaning as the DIMENSION attribute appearing in a type declaration statement.
Attributes are properties of entities which remain static during simulation (i.e. do not change). They have an associated set of attribute values, which are the possible values of the attributes.
Attributes represent static properties of entities. That is, features that usually do not change as part of the systems behavior. When modeling attributes, the set of values that an attribute may have must also be specified. Attributes should not be confused with quantities.
attribute object is used to define additional properties of an object. The term attribute is also used as a synonym for slot and instance-variable referring to class defined properties.
a property of an object; e.g. red.

(synonymous with characteristic). Any observable or imagined quality of a person or thing that is referred to for evaluating or categorizing that person or thing. For example, color, taste, physical shape or size, costliness, goodness, healthiness, sacredness, etc. In all cultures people categorize foods by referring to attributes such as tastiness, best way to prepare, filling, costliness, nutritiousness, strengthening, and many other qualities.
A data item declared with a class. Most attributes are instance-specific; each instance object of a class has its own copy of the attribute so that it can maintain a separate state. Some languages allow for class attributes where all instances of the class share one copy of the attribute and thereby maintain shared state.
An attribute identifies specific characteristics of courses and students that can be used in degree evaluation (HUM and SSC are examples of GUR course attributes).
an attribute of an object is part of the memorized information of that object. In other words, using the attribute of some object does not involve computation. An attribute is either constant or variable. When not constant, attribute means exactly the same as instance variable.
A characteristic or trait of an entity that describes the entity. An attribute can have a type, which indicates the range of information given by the attribute, and a value, which is within a range. In XML, for example, an attribute consists of a name-value pair within a tagged element and modifies a feature of an element.

(2) A specification, feature or characteristic that describes the physical, compositional, or structural properties of a good or service. Examples of attributes are voltage, color, weight, width, fabric type, etc. Each data pool is free to establish its own, different sets of attributes, based on the requirements of its users. However, there are 35 core attributes which are forwarded to the Global Registry that enable product information to be searched, exchanged and synchronized on a truly global basis.
A term from object-oriented programming that refers to a characteristic of an object.
A mandatory c haracteristic of a design object or cellview, such as the wire width attribute, that you can change but cannot delete. It is a permanent and predefined part of the datab ase. For example, a wire requires a beginning coordinate and an ending coordinate, and an instance requires an instance name. In contrast, properties are optional; attributes are not. Properties can be added, changed, or deleted. Attributes can be added or changed, but they cannot be deleted. See also property.

An attribute is a characteristic of an object. If the object is In an item record, the "SKU Number" is an attribute. Similarly an Item can have various other attributes such as item description, unit of measure, list price etc.
A quality or characteristic of a node. For example, a sphere's transform node has a Rotate X attribute that represents the sphere's orientation around the X axis. A node's attributes can connect to the attributes of other nodes, thus forming an intricate web of nodes. This means that you can create a virtually unlimited variety of complex, dynamic relationships between the many entities that comprise a scene.

The possession by an organism of a particular feature, e.g. this tree is rough-barked, that tree is half-barked (cf. character and character states).
Attributes are name-value pairs in a request object that can be set by servlet s. Contrast with parameter. More generally, an attribute is a unit of metadata.
A descriptive characteristic of one or more levels. For example, the product dimension for a clothing manufacturer might contain a level called item, one of whose attributes is color. Attributes represent logical groupings that enable end users to select data based on like characteristics. Note that in relational modeling, an attribute is defined as a characteristic of an entity. In Oracle Database 10, an attribute is a column in a dimension that characterizes elements of a single level.
An inherent characteristic of an object. (e.g. size, weight, age, etc.)

A field represented by a column within an object (entity). An object may be a table, view or report. An attribute is also associated with an SGML(HTML) tag used to further define the usage.
An attribute is a data item that has been "attached" to an Entity. By doing this, a distinction can be made between the generic characteristics of the data item itself (for instance, data type and default documentation) and the entity-specific characteristics (for example, identifying and entity-specific documentation). It is a distinct characteristic of an Entity for which data is maintained. An attribute is a value that describes or identifies an entity, an entity contains one or more attributes which characterize the entity as a whole. An Entity example is Employee, an Attribute example is Employee Last Name

A minimal characteristic of an artifact such that it can not be further subdivided: attributes commonly studied include aspects of form, color, and raw material.
An item of text, a numeric value or an image that is a characteristic of a particular spatial entity.
In the Java interface, an instance of Attribute maps to a column with a name and data type. The attribute corresponds to a column in a database table. When assigned to a column, the column must have a compatible data type; if the data type is not compatible, a runtime exception is likely. Attributes are also called variables, features, data fields, or table columns.
Corresponds to the header of a column in a relational table (field name). A concrete instance assigned to an attribute is called an attribute value.
An aspect, quality, or characteristic of either an entity or a relationship which describes it. An attribute may be a physical characteristic, such as size, weight, or color, or a locational attribute, such as place of residence or place of birth. It may be a quality such as level of a particular skill, educational degree achieved, or the dollar value of the items represented by the order.
The descriptive characteristics that are part of object type definitions and are automatically assigned to every object of that type. Each object type has its own set of attributes. Attributes are divided into two categories: base attributes and custom attributes. When a new object type is based on an existing type, the new object type (called a subtype) automatically inherits all of the attributes, both base and custom, defined for the object type on which it is based. To review the attributes that are part of an object type, use the Object Types dialog box. To review the values assigned to an object's base attributes, use the Attributes dialog box.
A small dataset that can be used to describe the nature and/or the intended usage of the object it is attached to.
Attributes are objects associated with a character or office which serve to identify that person or object. The crown of thorns, to cite one example, is an attribute of Jesus.

The data in an entry is contained in attribute-value pairs. Each attribute has a name (and sometimes a short form of the name) and belongs to an objectClass. The attributes characteristics are fully described by an ASN.1 definition. One or more objectClasses may be included in a Schema. Depending on the ASN.1 definition of the attribute there can be more that one attribute-value pair of the same named attribute in an entry. One (or more) attribute(s), the naming attribute or RDN will always uniquely identify an entry.

A descriptive characteristic of either a single dimension member or a group of dimension members. When applied to a single member, attributes provide supplementary information that can be used for display (such as a descriptive name) or in analysis (such as the number of days in a time period). When applied to a group, attributes represent logical groupings that enable users to select data based on like characteristics. For example, in a database representing footwear, you can use a shoe color attribute to select all boots, sneakers, and slippers that share the same color.
Property of an object, particularly a file or folder.

A characteristic of a data object. You can view and edit attributes for objects using the Edit dialog box.
That part of an IDL interface that is similar to a public class field or C++ data member. The idltojava compiler maps an OMG IDL attribute to accessor and modifier methods in the Java programming language. For example, an interface ball might include the attribute color. The idltojava compiler would generate a Java programming language method to get the color, and unless the attribute is readonly, a method to set the color. CORBA attributes correspond closely to JavaBeans properties.
a characteristic of a style that you can modify; for example, the degree of slant in the italic style.
Nongraphic descriptive information about features, characteristics or elements of a database. For a database feature like census tract, attributes might include many demographic facts including total population, average income, and age. In statistical parlance, an attribute is a variable, whereas the database feature represents an observation of the variable.
An identifiable association between an object and a value. An attribute is made visible to clients as a pair of operations: get_A and set_A. Readonly attributes only generate a get operation. Also, that part of an IDL interface that is similar to a public class field or C++ data member. The idlj compiler maps an OMG IDL attribute to accessor and modifier methods in the Java programming language. For example, an interface ball might include the attribute color. The idlj compiler would generate a Java programming language method to get the color, and unless the attribute is readonly, a method to set the color.

For files, information that indicates whether a file is read-only, hidden, ready for archiving (backing up), compressed, or encrypted, and whether the file contents should be indexed for fast file searching. In Active Directory, characteristics of an object and the type of information an object can hold. For each object class, the schema defines what attributes an instance of the class must have and what additional attributes it might have.
In computing, attributes are entities that define properties of objects, elements, or files. Attributes usually consist of a name (or key) and value.
