Yes it is. If you don't instantiate the object it's by default set to null.
It would be luck passing *OMIT to an RPG program if you did not instantiate
it.

You might not however need to create one for each parameter though. Maybe
just one for each type. I would need to look into a bit more to be sure on
that. I don't use program calls like this too often.

Ok. Thanks James. I know I need to instantiate the class. I was mainly
wondering if there wasn't a less kludgey way of getting the returned
value back into a java variable. I need to explain this to some folks
that might find

if (parms[5].getOutputDataLength() > 0)
myPackedVar = Integer.parseInt(
myPackedParm.toObject(parms[5].getOutputData()).toString());
}

a little counterintuitive. I was hoping that going from byte[] to string
to integer was a mistake. Maybe I can write a static function that will
clean it up a bit.
