In case of Callable Statement, I am clear about IN parameters but unclear about OUT parameter. Just want to know what are OUT parameters.

OUT parameters are a mechanism to pass information from the stored procedure to your application.

You use the IN parameters to pass info to the stored procedure.
You call the stored procedure.
You use the OUT parameters to retrieve info from the stored procedure.
