Is Java Pass by Value or Pass by Reference? Example

Hello guys, Does Java is pass by value or pass by reference is one of the tricky Java questions mostly asked on both beginner and experienced level Java developer interviews. Before debating whether Java is pass by value or pass by reference lets first clear what is pass by value and what is pass by reference actually means?. This question has its origin in Cand C++ where you can pass function parameter either value or memory address, where value is stored (pointer). As per Java specification everything in Java is pass by value whether its primitive value or objects and it does make sense because Java doesn't support pointers or pointer arithmetic, Similarly multiple inheritance and operator overloading is also not supported in Java.
