Meaning of CLASS METHOD

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

A kind of method, available in some object-oriented programming languages, that operates on the class as a whole, as opposed to an "object method" that operates on an object that is an instance of the class.

A typical example of a class method would be one that keeps a count of the number of objects of that class that have been created.
