     * reference still references the same object as before. However, the values
     * of the object's fields can be changed in the method, if they have the
     * proper access level.

         * persist when the method returns. Then employee is assigned a reference
         * to a new Employee object with name = null and age = 0.
         * 
         * This reassignment has no permanence, however, because the reference
         * was passed in by value and cannot change. Within the method, the
         * object pointed to by employee has changed, but, when the method
         * returns, myEmployee still references the same Employee object as
         * before the method was called.
