No, conceptually the C++ and Java examples are very different. Look at the concepts C++ introduces:

  • functions
  • operators
  • namespaces and include files, but that can be papered over as "magic" at this point
With Java:
  • classes
  • methods
  • method visibility
  • class-level (i.e. static) methods
  • packages, but that can be papered over as "magic"

Also classes and methods are higher level (and harder to understand) concepts than functions or operators - after all students meet functions and operators in math class too.

Also, both introduce the idea of main/Main as a special entry point for a program.
