|method parameter (BC-DWB-TOO-BOB)|
A criteria that is used to exchange information between the caller of a method and the method.
Method parameters can be defined for each method within the object type definition. They are values that are either passed to the method (import parameters) or are returned from the method (export parameters) at runtime. The interface of the method call is therefore determined by the definition of the parameters.
However, a method rarely has more than one return value that is returned specifically as its result. Parameters are therefore generally only used as import parameters of the method.
