Redefinition

The term redefinition is used in object-oriented programming. Redefinition is the overwriting of characteristics of a subclass that are inherited from one or more other classes (superclasses). Redefinition involves replacing the types of attributes and arguments of methods with subtypes, and overwriting the implementation of methods. By redefining inherited characteristics, a class becomes a specialization of its superclasses.
