Thanks to Oracle, it's possible since more than seven or eight years, to execute Java classes within the Oracle Database. So far, so good. Sounds a bit strange, but perhaps there are use cases. I myself can't imagine an use case where you really need this approach. But this is a different story.
(for the technicans of you: Oracle Database does only support Java 7 so far, as Nashorn is available since Java 8, you need the standalone nashorn.jar library additionally)
I really don't have any idea about that. And, additionally, I'm a bit scared of doing this... I'm a bit scared of upcoming solutions using this approach...
(ok, it was just a proof-of-concept within this talk, but I'm still scared!)
