/**
 * The Holder for <tt>TypeCode</tt>.  For more information on 
 * Holder files, see <a href="doc-files/generatedfiles.html#holder">
 * "Generated Files: Holder Files"</a>.<P>
 * A Holder class for a <code>TypeCode</code> object
 * that is used to store "out" and "inout" parameters in IDL operations.
 * If an IDL operation signature has an IDL <code>TypeCode</code> as an "out"
 * or "inout" parameter, the programmer must pass an instance of
 * <code>TypeCodeHolder</code> as the corresponding
 * parameter in the method invocation; for "inout" parameters, the programmer
 * must also fill the "in" value to be sent to the server.
 * Before the method invocation returns, the ORB will fill in the
 * value corresponding to the "out" value returned from the server.
 * <P>
 * If <code>myTypeCodeHolder</code> is an instance of <code>TypeCodeHolder</code>,
 * the value stored in its <code>value</code> field can be accessed with
 * <code>myTypeCodeHolder.value</code>.
 *
 * @version  1.14, 09/09/97
