Sorta.  HP-UX can swap into filesystems, but normally you don't set it
up this way 'cos who wants to pay the performance penalty?  Very handy
when you need just a little more swap though to postpone a reboot. :-)

HP-UX is not a good place to look at swap handling; there are a couple
of kludges involved in such things as "psuedo-swap".  Blech.
