Тонкости ECMA-262-5. Часть 1. Свойства и дескрипторы свойств

Read this article in: English.


Эта глава посвященна одной из новых концепций в спецификации ECMA-262-5 — атрибутам свойств и механизму работы с ними, дескрипторам свойств.

Обычно, говоря, что объект имеет какие-то свойства, мы имеем ввиду связь между именем свойства и его значением. Но, как мы знаем из анализа ES3, структура свойства несколько сложнее, чем просто строковое имя. Оно также имеет набор атрибутов — те, которые мы уже обсудили в статьях об ES3, например {ReadOnly}, {DontEnum} и другие. С этой точки зрения свойство само по себе является объектом.

ECMA-262-5 in detail. Chapter 0. Introduction.

We have finished analysis of the most important parts and theoretical aspects concerning 3rd edition of the ECMA-262 specification, i.e. standard devoted ECMAScript programming language. We have done and achieved a lot. Originally written in Russian, this series after more than half an year has been translated to several languages, what allowed this information to be shared with JavaScript developers and with everyone who interested in deep ECMAScript allover the world.

This is the second part of article about object-oriented programming in ECMAScript. In the first part we discussed the general theory and drew parallels with ECMAScript. Before reading of the current part, if it is necessary, I recommend reading the first part as in this article we will actively use the passed terminology. You can find the first part here: ECMA-262-3 in detail. Chapter 7.1. OOP: The general theory.

In this article we consider major aspects of object-oriented programming in ECMAScript. That the article has not turned to “yet another” (as this topic already discussed in many articles), more attention will be given, besides, to theoretical aspects to see these processes from within. In particular, we will consider algorithms of objects creation, see how relationships between objects (including the basic relationship — inheritance) are made, and also give accurate definitions which can be used in discussions (that I hope will dispel some terminological and ideological doubts and messes arising often in articles on OOP in JavaScript).
