Sorry, but "deploy .java function" does not compute to me : inside an Oracle db what you can have in this sense is :
a) write a java stored procedure, itīs your .java source that you are creating here direct inside the db
b) you can load a java code (.jar , .class, etc) in the db with the LOADJAVA utility : this code can be yours, something that YOU wrote and compiled, OR can be from other origins, maybe evene something what you do not have the source code
search in asktom.oracle.com for "LOADJAVA" and for "JAVA STORED PROCEDURE", you will find some examples. IF neither a) or b) are what you means, please explain more about your requirement.
Thanks chiappa,I Got an email from one of the developers saying "All of the .java programs in this directory will have to be compiled using java SDK 1.4 or higher
And then a normal loadjava deployment of the java classes
and the database functions in these classes"
