I'd say in general they are two terms for the same thing.  Depending on the circumstances, however, there may be a slight difference:

Object Oriented Programming in my mind is like C++.  C++ is a object oriented language but it is entirely possible to write C++ code that has objects or no objects.  In other words, objects are not required to use the language.  Now I know some purist will say that C++ makes ALL language elements (like int, char, float, etc) objects but this is really thin.

Object Based is more rigorous.  Take Java.  It's impossible to write a Java program without using objects.  Everything is an object.  Another example is COM programming.  In COM, you deal with objects, and hooking them together.

Just my opinion, your results may vary...

But the term "Object Oriented Programming" is used to describe programming in languages like Java where you must use objects.  While logical, I really don't think that is a recognized difference between the two terms.  The most significant difference is their spellings.

Some people refer to languages that support objects but not inheritence as "object based".

I object based programming, you can just use the classes which have been defined in the language. You can define / declare your own classes. For eg., Java script.

In object oriented programming you can use the language defined classes and you can declare / define your own classes also. For eg., C++ , Java.

I think that yonat is right ,in that
You can't use inheritance in Object based languages.

gurpreets,
Probably meant to say
>>>I object based programming, you can just use the classes which have been defined in the language. You can define / declare your own classes. For eg., Java script.

In object based programming, you can just use the classes which have been defined in the language. You CAN'T define / declare your own classes. For eg., Java script.

I do think that older versions of VB were OB now newer versions are OO.
