Please excuse me...if its very silly to ask such a question.I heard that java is not 100% object oriented and some programming language called SmallTalk is 100% OO.But as far as I know for any language to be object oriented...we should be able to design the real world objects through that language.But java can do that.Then why it cannot be called as Pure Object Oriented???

Hello Meher, welcome to the Java Ranch Saloon.

Every now and then somebody asks this question - you're not the first person who's asking it. I don't know why people are so interested to know if Java is "100% object oriented" or not.

There is no simple yes-or-no answer to this question, because there is no official, exact definition of what is "object oriented" and what is not.

Anyway, the question is also not really very interesting from a practical point of view. Does it matter if Java is 100% OO (by whatever definition of "100% OO" you choose) or not for your everyday job as a Java developer? No, it doesn't - so the question is only interesting if you want to have an academic discussion about it.

If you'd like to find more discussions about this subject, try typing in your question on Google - but I can promise you already that you won't find a clear answer.
