Subprograms in Other Languages

There are times when PL/SQL cannot be used to effectively accomplish a programming task. Although these concerns are not very common, Oracle has provided the ability to extend database functionality beyond what is possible in PL/SQL. Most recent Oracle Versions (other than the free Oracle XE database) include support for writing PL/SQL programs in other languages including Java and C. The use of this functionality requires special administrative rights and configuration. In addition, the use of these features requires both an understanding of the language being used as well as implementation limitations and idiosyncrasies for the implementation used by the Oracle database.
