I only researched about desktop and mobile Java. Not browser Java.

No, I wrote my own.

My compiler is for procedural Pascal, but no, I don't think that
classes are a problem with pointers. They are internally a pointer,
but in a hidden way. Direct use of pointers is a problem, and pointer
aritmetic too.
