This question has indeed been asked and discussed many times here on the forums.

There is no definitive answer to the question, because there is no single, precise definition that everybody agrees upon of what "pure object oriented language" means.

The page you linked to gives a description of the criteria that they have used to say whether a language is or is not pure (just scroll down a bit).

Why does it matter? How will it affect your understanding or usage of Java if you do or do not hang that label on it?

Do you have a general idea what "Object Oriented Programming" entails? Do you have a general idea of how Java supports OOP? If you can't answer at least a partial yes to both those questions, you need to study more. And if you can answer yes, then what possible difference will it make to add the factoid, "Java is/is not a 'pure' OO language," to your catalog of knowledge?

What everyone else said. And by the way, it's 'Java'; not 'java' or 'JAVA'.
