Objects and its Internal representation in JavaScript

As we all know object is a collection of properties and it is associated between a name or key and a value.

for example

If your object is car and properties are color,weight,model etc.,

We can create object in many ways

Object Literal-Direct way

Object.create

Object Instance

Object constructor

object assign

  1. A JavaScript object Literal is a comma-separated list of name-value pairs wrapped in curly braces separating the keys and values, and a comma after every key:value pair, except for the last, just like a regular array.

For Example

var car= {
color: “white”,
name: “benz”,
price: “27L”,
updateprice: () => {
// logic to update price
},
grade: [‘A’, ‘A+’, ‘A’]
}

2.This method creates a new object with the specified prototype and properties of the old object

For Example

var newstudent=object.create(student){

age:”17"

grade:[“A”,”A+”,”A”]

id:7

name:”Mahesh”

updateAddress:()=>{

//logic of updateaddress}

newstudent;

3.”instance” can be used informally to mean an object created using a particular constructor function.

For Example

const newObj = new Object();
newObj.name = ‘Mahesh’;
newObj.location = ‘Delhi, India’;

4.A constructor is a function that creates an instance of a class which is typically called an “object”. It is called when you declare an object using the new keyword.

For Example

function Vehicle(name, model) {
this.name = name;
this.model = model;
}

let car1 = new Vehicle(‘Fiesta’, ‘2019’);
let car2 = new Vehicle(‘DC avanti’, ‘2018’);

5.The method copies all enumerable own properties from one or more source objects to a target objects. It returns the target object.

For Example

const target = { a: 1, b: 2 };
const source = { b: 4, c: 5 };

const returnedTarget = Object.assign(target, source);

console.log(target);
// expected output: Object { a: 1, b: 4, c: 5 }

console.log(returnedTarget);
// expected output: Object { a: 1, b: 4, c: 5 }

Strings,Booleans can be classified as primitive data types whereas Arrays and Objects are composite data types
