    1. How often have you ported an app from one database engine to another (e.g., MySQL to Oracle)?


    2. How often have you had completely separate apps writing to the same data store (using completely different code bases)?

    A couple of times. Putting the logic in the database generally also simplifies data retrieval and storage in the app layer.

    3. Do you depend on non-portable database features?


    4. Have you experienced programmers damaging your data because the logic wasn't in the database layer?

    Not to my recollection, because I place the logic in the database whenever possible.
