Java is object oriented by any reasonable definition of the term.

Your claim about "*everything* is an object" and therefore in an OOPL, functions must be objects, is not valid. It is not the case that *everything* in an OOPL is an object. Is a comment an object? Is private or public an object? Is a field an object? No.

OOPLs have methods. There is no requirement to have functions be objects to qualify an as OOPL.
