There is an equivalent for string objects in java. String values are stored in Javas string pool, then which variables make references to them. Apart from that there are no other cases of equivalent pointer functionality in Java.

no Java supports no pointer concept and hence it is a highly secure language...

no, it don't support pointer because in Java it is so designed that it doesn't need pointers as well as it having no pointer it provide higher security for data..👍
