Maybe the OP meant "function pointers"? ... which is common in the C language.

In Java, passing around functions are not really allowed... as functions (aka methods) are part of instances. But you can kinda simulate that...

To call a function, you would need an instance and the name of the method -- so, I guess you can create a class that contain those two as a pair. And to actually call it, you can use the reflection lib to get the Method object, and call invoke() with the instance.

I believe that OP is talking about Function Point Analysis : see link http://www.devdaily.com/FunctionPoints/

Note: this is not a java topic - moderator may consider relocating.
