Chapter 26. Using Java with PL/SQL
One of Oracle8i’s major new features is the ability to store and execute Java programs inside the database, giving Oracle developers another server-side development language (the first language, of course, is PL/SQL). These Java stored procedures (JSPs) open up a whole new realm of potential applications. For example, developers can use the Java networking classes to allow their database applications to communicate directly with network applications, such as a web server, on other computers.
Fortunately for us, Oracle has made PL/SQL and Java interoperable, allowing PL/SQL developers to call JSPs and Java developers to call PL/SQL stored procedures. This chapter tests your ability to define PL/SQL wrappers that allow you to call JSPs within PL/SQL.
