I can tell you how we are using it. We are converting an applet based application into a J2EE with Oracle backend. The old applet actually has alot of data coded in its java code (They later tried to retrofit this into a relational store). Instead of rewriting all of this hardwired code, we are judiciously loading key java code into Oracle and calling it directly.

I don't think I would recommend the java making jdbc calls. I would recommend using it when PL/SQL doesn't support your needs.
