How to pass array to a function in Java so that it returns changed?

I need smth like func (array *a), but in Java.
Yes, I know: Java manipulates objects 'by reference,' but it passes object references to methods 'by value.'
But how to accomplish what I need?

have you actually tried to pass an array to a function? there is nothing special to accomplish what you need. if pass an array, then change the array in the function, the passed array will be changed back in the callers scope.

or am i missing something here?
