    Oracle and Java Class

    Hi all
    I manually created a new 9i database on a test box that will be eventually deployed into the Production.
    I did not install java yet.

    Here is my question.
    It is imperative to install java on the production database? My present 8i database has java installed but it not used. Java pool is also commented in the init.ora.

    What happens if you don't have a java installed?
    Could some one explain why java is a MUST? or Not.
    Thanks

    Sorry, I can't explain why Java is a *must* (or if it is actually a must). But could you explain why you are reluctant to install Java?

    One idea I have is that many of the front-end 9i Oracle tools are written in Java and perhaps (just perhaps) the Java components in the database are required for these tools to work.

    Also, in order to use Java stored procedures there is indeed an extra package to install in order to use this feature - this is definitely optional if you won't be using Java procs.

    Other than that I'd be curious to know why you don't want Java?
