Download DIAGRAM: Exploring a Premise object and its class. 1.0

- - - - -

The attached diagram shows how to explore a Premise object and its class.

If you are unfamiliar with the difference between an object and a class, here is a metaphor:

A cake is an object. It is composed of ingredients and occupies space.
A recipe for cake is a class. It is instructions for making a cake using specific ingredients.

The Thermostat class is a recipe for making a Thermostat object. Premise's Schema contains dozens of classes. Premise Home is where objects are created based on classes found in Premise's Schema. Users can define new classes in Premise's Modules. Therefore Premise's objects are derived from classes defined in Premise's Schema or Modules.

The diagram shows to explore a Premise Thermostat object. Using Builder, it navigates to the Thermostat's class, in Premise's Schema, and continues to all its inherited classes. Inheritance is the concept where one class is based upon one or more other classes. Using our metaphor, your chocolate cake recipe is based upon your mom's chocolate cake recipe.
