    1. How often have you ported an app from one database engine to another (e.g., MySQL to Oracle)? only small applications. 2. How often have you had completely separate apps writing to the same data store (using completely different code bases)? every day. it is maddening. 3. Do you depend on non-portable database features? yes, but they are mainly isolated to a a library that generates the sql we need, so it doesn't frighten me (well, not completely, anyway) to need to change it. 4. Have you experienced programmers damaging your data because the logic wasn't in the database layer? i would attribute the damage done to inconsistent application logic that is distributed and duplicated more than to it not being in the database. They can be viewed as one in the same problem, however.
