All types have fields that, taken as a whole, reflect the object’s state. Every time a field in an object changes value, the overall state of that object also changes. As an example of what is meant by object state, let’s imagine a class called Point3D. We’ll give it three integer fields: x, y, and z. It will include methods setX(), setY(), and setZ(), which allow a caller to modify any one element of a Point3D object at a time. A diagram of this class might look like Figure 1-2. Figure 1-2: A sketch of the Point3D class We can assume, while designing, that these methods will do the work suggested by their names.

A diagram of this class might look like Figure 1-2. Figure 1-2: A sketch of the Point3D class We can assume, while designing, that these methods will do the work suggested by their names. Whether they operate correctly and predictably is, of course, a code concern. But the objects made from this class will have the Point3D type. Each object will expose the methods setX(), setY(), and setZ(). The state of each object is based (mostly) on the three integer values listed. In that sense, a Point3D object whose x, y, and z values are, say, 1, 2, and 3, has a different state than one whose values are 3, 5, and 9.
