Bear in mind that DB programmers often know SQL. To me, and apparently to them,
PL/pgsql seems closer to the already-known SQL than PL/JAVA.

Besides that, PL/JAVA -which I honestly think is a great concept in itself-
doesn't free you from learning "yet another language" if you are working with
PHP, Python, Node.js, etc... In these cases, PL/pgsql is a safer bet.
