A reference type is a data type thatโ€™s based on a class rather than on one of the primitive types that are built in to the Java language. The class can be a class thatโ€™s provided as part of the Java API class library or a class that you write yourself.

A reference type is something that is passed by reference. IE is an Object. int[] a = {6}; someMethod(a); void someMethod(int[] b){ b[0] = 2; // a becomes {2} }
