Recently I have worked on a project that I assume could be solved by using Java stored procedure (more precisely some recieving/sending email package).
Аfter a while I've found that there are very few number of Java classes and Java stored procedures in my company's database. I asked DBA and he said that using Java stored procedures is prohibited because "It can easily put the server down".
I would be greateful if someone could expain me: is it really dangerous to use Java stored procedures that use external packages? Are there any pitfalls? Is using Java stored procedures not a common practice?
