Technology / Programming / Attributes: Within a class, an attribute is a defined quality of that class. It is similar in function to a string or integer variable but, because it is inextricably related to the class in which it is defined, it is an attribute of the class. All objects which belong to a class naturally share its attributes. See also methods.
