I know an EXCELLENT set of articles exists on pass-by-value exists somewere on this site. But I can't find exactly where.
I ask as i've previously printed it all out - but have got the pages all jumbled up.
Can anybody point me in the right direction to it?

Cheers in advance.

Well howdy -- those articles are part of the "Campfire Stories" and they're at:
But since you asked
I wrote the first four (including pass-by-value, cup-size, how I taught my dog polymorphism, and getting in touch with your inner class) and if you find 'em helpful, there's gonna be a whole BOOK with stories and other pictorial approaches to learning Java (from O'Reilly) coming out in about 8 weeks. It's called "Head First Java" (a brain-friendly guide)
I reckon you'll see a few more Campfire Stories up here on javaranch real soon -- we'll pull a few of our favorites from the book and try to get 'em up here.
We also have a bunch of exercises and puzzles to go with it, and some of those will be up here at the ranch soon, too.
