See this for detailed description.

In Java, parameters are always passed by value. For example, following program prints i = 10, j = 20.




//  Test.java
class Test {
   // swap() doesn't swap i and j
   public static void swap(Integer i, Integer j) {
      Integer temp = new Integer(i);
      i = j;
      j = temp;
   }
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      Integer i = new Integer(10);
      Integer j = new Integer(20);
      swap(i, j);
      System.out.println("i = " + i + ", j = " + j);
   }
}
