Java in Oracle

What other use of Java can relate to ORACLE besides JDBC?

JDBC just lets a Java program (application, applet) connect to a database and perform SQL statements against that database.

Oracle has the ability to run Java programs right in the database. Oracle comes with its own Java Virtual Machine (JVM) to run Java programs. These programs are stored in the database as stored procedures. They do not need JDBC to interact with the database. So why would one want to run Java programs in the database? Java programs let you do more things than one can do in PL/SQL programs. This just gives the application developer more power in developing database apps. Storing these Java programs in the database also leverages the power of the database, such as security control, transaction control, backing up the application when the database is backed up, etc.
