This book introduces the basic concepts of Java in Oracle Database and provides general information about server-side configuration and functionality. It contains information that pertains to the Oracle Database Java environment in general,
rather than to a particular product, such as JDBC.
The book also discusses Java stored procedures, which are programs that run directly in Oracle Database. With stored procedures (functions, procedures, and triggers), Java developers can implement business logic at the server level, which
improves application performance, scalability, and security.
