Also called a table in database parlance, an object is a single logical grouping of attributes. For example, in the Data Warehouse, the Person object contains attributes such as Last Name and Age. Each object is represented in Bi/Query as a single icon.
An item that can be selected and maneuvered such as an icon.
Within fact, and within its existential phase, object is that which acquires firmest specification, and is thus distinguished from situation and event. This holds to the determination of Dewey (Logic, p. 119; also pp. 129, 520, et al.) that in inquiry object "emerges as a definite constituent of a resolved situation, and is confirmed in the continuity of inquiry," and is "subjectmatter, so far as it has been produced and ordered in settled form."
A term used to describe a set of variables and code that acts as one logical unit.
Any logical piece of data that has associated behavior. For example, in File Manager, files, directories, actions, and applications are all considered objects. Each type of object has specific associated actions. Typically, each object is represented as an icon.
