Before Tiger, Because of existence of primitives we say
is not pure OOL. With the help of new feature added in Tiger, Autoboxing and Unboxing, We can direclty
perform operations on primitives objects say Integer(2). ?.
like this ... Integer(7) + Integer(7) =14.
Pl. correct me if i am wrong ?.

We still have primitives (or we still use them widely). Also these operators- +,-,* and all are Operators and not method calls. What I would think should an actual OOP do-
new Integer(7).+(new Integer(14))//Similar to what Scala does
So everything we use should be Objects and the operations performed on them should be method calls in the Objects. So we cannot say Java is Pure OOL.

and the standard answer is that since no two people have EVER agreed on what "Pure OO" means, the question is meaningless.
There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
I agree. Here's the link:

Pass by Reference in Java
what is primitive data type ?
Why need Integer class ?
is java 100% object oriented
