    Pointer Concept is reasonable in case you're using non-OO methodology.
    Object Oriented Programming means that there's no memory, CPU, Hard Drive, etc. All you have is a space full of objects. Thus, all the items in Java are Objects.
    This is the basic concept of OOP & Java.

    A lot of programming errors occur from the use of pointers. Java is designed to provide a strong type-checking, memory managing programming and program execution environment. The existence of pointers in a language makes the guarantee of type safety and memory management more difficult (if not impossible).
