thanks Nupur,i searched the ranch and found them.but could not get anything on byvalue(one of the deprecated reserved words).
"byvalue" (and several other words) has *never* been a reserved word. In the early days of java it was part of an early, pre-release version of the Java Language Specification, but it never actually made the final cut into the language. Several publications got early release copies of the list, and included them in their list of java keywords, and that's why you see them pop up in various places. But they have never been, nor are they now, keywords in java.
