  • I've tried before to move some business logic into the database because I thought it should be there. I got stuck figuring how to write the procedural language code. After fussing with it a bit, I pragmatically backed out, realizing the maintenance programmers were also strong in Perl, not procedual SQL programming. I rationalized that this decision made the application cheaper and easier to maintain, because a smaller skill set was involved. In this case, we still able to enforce some rules through the application, and things generally worked out fine.
