java event on sql insert

Is it possible to have some java code executed( such as sending mail) when a certain field in a database table is updated?
I am using ms-sql server 7. I know that there are triggers, but these seem to be confined to running sql statements not running java code.
Thanks in advance,

I don't know about ms-sql server 7, but in Oracle you can call java programs from database triggers... but that doesn't really help you now does it!
The only alternative that I can quickly think of, is to check the condition in your java program before you insert/update through java. If the condition is right, execute the java, if not, just insert.
I agree. Here's the link:
