As IDL inout and out parameters do not map directly into the Java parameter passing mechanism, one needs to map them to Java holder classes. For each IDL out or inout parameter, the client supplies an instance of the appropriate Java holder class. The contents of the holder instance are modified by the call, and the client uses the contents when the call returns. Does it mean that out or inout parameters are passed by reference? Please explain in detail.
