Without seeing what your function is doing it's tough to tell where things 
are going wrong.  Perhaps you've switched some parameters around from the 
function arguments to the insert call?  The JDBC driver rearranges the 
output parameter to be in the argument list for it's own internal 
convenience.  This is OK and doesn't affect the parameter numbering or 
the calling of the function.
