I have seen way too many times because sql is relativelky easy to learn, people write all kinds of queries to bring databse to its knees. There is no concept of any resuable modular code ...Also, complex sql satements are very difficult to debug,I don' know there are any debuggers where you can step through each step of the query plan which your database engine is running.

I may be biased but procedural language is alwyas needed to do complex database procedssing, that's why Oracle has PL/sQL and SQL Server t-sql. It is just that t-sql is primitive compared to pl/sql. Received on Sun Jun 24 2012 - 18:16:46 CDT
