    Java is not OOP? How is it not object-oriented?

    As a bit of a noobie may I respectfully ask why Java is not object oriented?

    Agile, to me, to the same as using cheesegrater as toilet paper.

    For those not sure, people sometimes use a term or concept (e.g. OOP, CI, Git) when they really mean a particular implementation or tool which offers that concept (e.g. Java, Jenkins, GitHub). Those people are generally stupid. Or recruiters.

    No one's answered the question for why Java isn't oop

    @tisaconundrum OOP is a concept/term. Java is an OOP language. There are other OOP languages: C#, Swift,... That's what I think. Am I stupid?

    @ironedr great analysis

    @ironedr Every now and then when I hear OOP, I don't go into every single detail, I just state in my mind "object-oriented language", not as a concept which is good known to me.
  • 1
    @ironedr Are there actually those kind of people who think that? Haven't seem anything worse than clients expecting that developer will create a whole framework on client's laptop through TeamViewer and stating that it is an easy job and $5 is enough.

    In particular, Object is not object. Object is a Java class, arbitrarily designed as the top of part of the hierarchy (excluding the primitive types). "boolean" variables are objects, but are not "instanceof Object".

    To the top with you!
    This should more widely known, than it is now...

    @ironedr Nailed the Java is not OOP point 👍 I meant that while Java is an Object-oriented Language, that doesn't make it "the methodology of object oriented programming".

    Also I love Agile! Well, scrum. Well, it feels like a constant unrelenting stream of work. Kind of luck being stuck at the bottom of a waterfall. But I prefer it to Waterfall. 😉

    That is just deeper version of a browser (I.e. IE) is not the internet.
    This misconception leads to some funny notions like: The internet was slow, just restarted it, now it looks fine... (😱😱😱 just visualised all the interconnected devices going down and coming back up again because the user willed it so)

    Unfortunately quite some webdevs can't make the distinction either. And they are responsible for making it (the browser not the internet 😉) slow in the first place.

    @hjk101 ooh how did I miss off "IE is not the internet"?!

    @dirtycasual agreed you need to make a class to execute Java

    I mean OOP is a paradigm you could ignore but Java is basically yelling at you to use it

    If you want to explain somebody the difference between git and GitHub, say them that's the same difference as between porn and PornHub.

    @hjk101 I think Ubuntu is not Linux makes more sense than the other way around

    Operants are interchangeable with == and != But indeed I mean I hate it when people always assume I'm using or am taking about Ubuntu when taking about Linux.

    @hjk101
    In that case they're not interchangeable though...imho
