Learning JavaScript

First posting at 2014-05-21
Web browser에서 쓰이는, "Object-based based on prototypes" 특성을 갖는 client-side 프로그래밍 언어인 JavaScript를 배워 봅시다. 여기는 제가 헷갈렸던 부분만 조금 정리.

Making an instance from a constructor function (class-like)

Note: The term "instance" has a specific technical meaning in class-based languages (like C++, JAVA). In these languages, an instance is an individual instantiation of a class and is fundamentally different from a class. In JavaScript, "instance" does not have this technical meaning because JavaScript does not have this difference between classes and instances. However, in talking about JavaScript, "instance" can be used informally to mean an object created using a particular constructor function. So you could informally say that jane (=new Engineer) is an instance of Engineer (=function object). Similarly, although the terms parent, child, ancestor, and descendant do not have formal meanings in JavaScript; you can use them informally to refer to objects higher or lower in the prototype chain.

Property inheritance (Prototype/__proto__ chaining)

An Example of simple object hierarchy.
Copied from: - 11. Details of the object model - # The employee example.
아래 예제를 공부하면서는 각자 object hierarchy를 그려보면서 (property도 표시하면서) 이해하는 것이 도움이 된다. 개인적으로 그려놓긴 했는데, 손으로 그린거라 사진찍어서 올리기 귀찮;;; 계층도를 그릴 때 "a=b;" 명령어에서 b가 primitive type일 경우에만 'return by value'이고 그 외 javascript ojbect 일 때에는 'return by reference'로 이루어진다는 것에 주의하자. 'Return by reference'는 화살표로 원래 object를 가리키는 것이 이해에 좋다. ('a=b;'로 assign 될 때에는 GetValue(b) 가 호출되는 듯한데, b가 primitive type (number, string, boolean literals + undefined, null) 이라면 value를 이 외 object (including Number, String, Boolean objects) 라면 이 object의 address/reference가 return 되어 assigned.)
(See - #11.13.1 Simple Assignment ( = ) for the details. #4.3.2 primitive value: member of one of the types Undefined, Null, Boolean, Number, or String as defined in Clause 8. NOTE: A primitive value is a datum that is represented directly at the lowest level of the language implementation.)
When JavaScript sees a property of an object, in other words, when you access an object property, JavaScript performs these steps.
  1. Check to see if the value exists locally in that object. If it does, return that value. (This is called 'own property', property that is directly contained by its object. - 4.3.30 own property.)
  2. If there is not a local value, check the __proto__ chain (using the __proto__ property). All object have the '__proto__' property by default.
  3. If the specified property exists in the __proto__ chain, return that value. (This is called 'inherited property', property of an object that is not an own property but is a property (either own or inherited) of the object’s prototype. - 4.3.31 inherited property.)
  4. If not, check the successive __proto__ chain until __proto__ return 'null'.
  5. If no such property is found, the object does not have the property. So return 'undefined'.
(Quoted from - 11. Details of the object model - # Property inheritance revisited - # Local versus inherited values, and slightly edited further by kipid.)


Property inheritance 특성으로 인해서 html child tag 들이 parent tag 의 attr 를 쉽게 상속받고 parent tag 의 attr 수정이 쉽게 child 쪽에 적용이 되는듯함. OnAttributeChange event 같은것도 있는건가? 인터넷 브라우저가 참 잘만들어진듯 =ㅇ=;;; 신기하당.
