    Default Does Java have a pass by reference?

    Seems to me when I studied C++ there was a pass-by-value and a pass-by-ref. If I remember correctly, an example program that showed this stuff had the variables original value unchanged after a method call that used it, and the other one changed the value of the variable. I see a pass-by-value example program in my book but I don't see a pass-by-ref example.

    Just wondering if Java has pass-by-ref at all.

    Java uses the pass by value mechanism only (just as C does).

    kind regards,
