Basic is widely used language which lacks pointers.

If you think that considering Java as NetBasic is about to say that Java is
poor or weak or otherwise bad and useless language - then you are wrong.
Basic was very useful language which gave to many people an opportunity
of using computer at the level above of text editor or simple spreadsheet.
And now, several years Visual Basic plays similar role giving to many people
an opportunity to work with objects.
