Why Use Inheritance 🤔

Why Use Inheritance?

  1. Code Reusability and Recycling: Subclasses inherit all properties and methods from the superclass, reducing repetitive code. This makes it easier to reuse and recycle code.

  2. Code Organization: Inheritance allows you to structure your code in a hierarchical manner, which can lead to cleaner and more organized code. This is especially helpful in large codebases.

  3. Extensibility: New functionalities can be easily added to a base class without modifying it. The new features can be added in the derived class, making the code more extensible.

  4. Data Hiding: Base classes can hide certain data from derived classes by declaring them as private. This provides a level of security, ensuring that data can't be accidentally or intentionally altered.

  5. Overriding Methods: Inheritance allows subclasses to override methods of the superclass. This makes it possible to change the behavior of methods according to the requirements of the subclass.

  6. Polymorphism: Inheritance is a prerequisite for polymorphism, a fundamental principle of object-oriented programming that allows objects of different classes to be treated as objects of a common superclass.

  7. Consistency: By ensuring that all subclasses follow the same base set of properties and methods, inheritance can lead to more consistent code.

  8. Faster Development: As inheritance allows for reusing and extending existing code, it can significantly speed up development time.
