My blood boils too! Been there, done that.

One of the solutions that we implemented is to move the logic of the views in the database layer (views, PL/SQL, etc.) to the application layer (Java, C++, etc.).

It depends what your school of thought is. But I believe the database should store raw data. It should guarantee contstraint and referential integrity. That's it. Any data manipulation/calculation/display should be in the application layer.
