Right now? You don't. JXPCOM simply can't deal with such parameters.
Possibly fixable, didn't investigate if there are technical issues with
implementing "out" parameters of type "byte ptr". The code for handling
the various 'out' parameter passing cases is in
src/libs/xpcom18a4/java/src/nsJavaWrapper.cpp, function FinalizeParams
(which is called from Java through the JNI function callXPCOMMethod in
the same file). The 'in' case is in SetupParams.
Apparently so far no one needed to call methods with pointer parameters.
