output is 0

when the main method call add3(), it copy the reference of local variable i in main method and pass it to the local variable i in add3 method.

those two i point to the same object at the begin of the method add3()

Inside add3() method, it changes the reference of the local i variable to a new Integer, which does not change anything of the local variable i in main method, so the output of the println in main method still print out the value of the original Integer object.

Have you not compiled and run the code yourself? Getting practice with using an editor and compiler is an important part of becoming a Java programmer. Do you want to be just a "theoretical" programmer? If you cannot understand a compiler message or why a particular expression evaluates to a particular result then just ask.

Why is more important than What.
