Cloudscape supported (in a non-standard way) direct calls to Java 
methods as "procedures" with out parameters. The code was very messy, 
trying to determine if a parameter was an IN or OUT parameter on the fly 
was awkward. The code might have been related to that, being able to 
call a Java method that was a "procedure" with out parameters and the 
Java method returned a value, e.g.

  {? = call some.method.inaclass.mymethod(?) }

The code was all replaced by standard SQL procedures and functions.
