I was asked this in the interview. I mentioned important points that I knew - like data encapsulation and blah blah.. The interviewer insisted that I choose 4 key points. Which would they be? Moreover, he mentioned that these 4 key points are standard, and one does not need to explain beyond these 4 key points while talking about oops.
Any pointers?
TIA,

Thanks, I did mention all these points. In fact, looks like I did reasonablly well in the interview. I just received a mail saying that I'll have an interview with the CTO tonight.

I agree with Encapsulation, Inheritance, Polymorphism, but would abstraction be the fourth? What about the concept of everything is an object?

Is a stateless session bean an object or is it an algorithm?
Has the value of inheritance been proven to be, well shall we say, not all we were lead to believe? Is Joshua Block saying to make your classes final to save yourself and your project?
Has OO proven to be more hype than rubber on the road. Do just as many OO projects fail as structured ones did.
Have we found the holy grail of reuse? I don't thinks so unless your talking about the libraries from Sun. Sure there are exceptions but there were exceptions in structured projects too.
I'm an OO fan but I think I was sold a bill of goods.

I have always heard of 3 key points, not 4, would be inheritance, encapsulation and polymorphism, but abstraction??? Please explain.
