Why Java?

Java provides a number of features that make it ideal for use in the database:

  • Thorough error checking at compile time.
  • Built-in error handing with a well-defined error handling methodology.
  • Built-in garbage collection (memory recovery).
  • Elimination of many bug-prone programming techniques.
  • Strong security features.
  • Java code is interpreted, so no operations get executed without being acceptable to the Java VM.
