Data Abstraction and Data Encapsulation both of these features are considered as the pillars of object-oriented programming language, but they have different functionality and implementation mechanism.
Let us know how these two OOPs features are different from one another.
|Data Abstraction||Data Encapsulation|
|Data Abstraction can be described as the technique of hiding internal details of a program and exposing the functionality only.||Data Encapsulation can be described as the technique of binding up of data along with its correlate methods as a single unit.|
|Implementation hiding is done using this technique.||Information hiding is done using this technique.|
|Data abstraction can be performed using Interface and an abstract class.||Data encapsulation can be performed using the different access modifiers like protected, private, and packages.|
|Abstraction lets somebody see the What part of program purpose.||Encapsulation conceals or covers the How part of the program's purpose.|
