Preetha , byvalue is not a keyword.
If you do a search on JavaRanch for volatile and strictfp , you'll get enough information .
Try it !

"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.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
