Stored procedures in Oracle are not the same as SPs in other databases.
As you can see, he talks about SPs as a replacement for SQL. That is NOT how Oracle SPs are used in general.

But, frankly, I think he doesn't really know what he is talking about if he says that it mangles the 3-tier principle.
His second argument, about how SPs form a maintenance problem is BS too, as is his third argument.
Why would it take more time to test referential integrity if you have an SP compared to when you don't use them???

Again, all he says does simply NOT relate to Oracles stored procedures. The mere thought that SPs would not scale proves that.

Methinks, he is talking about MySQL.
At some point the author says (or that is what i understood) it easier to maintain Business Logic in application and i do not agree with that. I cannot speak for MySQL. But generally databases (specifcally oracle) are designed to do the computing/processing in backend with builtin functions/procedures.
