Do you mean Java stored procedures in an Oracle database?
My RDBMS and PL/SQL savvy colleagues use this technique to write functionalities not provided by the standard packages.
For example there is a package to read/write directly from and to files from a stored procedure,
but the possibility to obtain a file list of the given directory is utterly missing.
Well, not until it is provided by a Java procedure.

Yes i meant the java stored procedures. I am not sure how extensively it is used. I was looking for whole business logic being run in the java procedures. As i believer java stored procedures faster than pl/sql
