    Like Kevin said, that's a pretty broad question. The way I think about it, you create objects to represent things that you want to create. Each object has both the things it can do (member functions) and things that describe it (member variables).

    Building off of this..

    Object oriented simply means this generic type of programming style is preferred for this language. Obviously no one is gonna stand behind you and make you write an application using objects and accessor methods, etc

    But the Java language is beautifully laid out, thankfully, so we can follow this system put in place for us that makes it all the more simple. We use objects and their properties/functions to get things we want done in the java language, hence it being oriented around objects.

    "Object" - "Oriented" - "Programming"

    OOP
