I suppose that one pro for using DB defined constraints is that you use a fairly simple declarative syntax as opposed to program logic. While we generally limit DB inserts and updates to a single RPG I/O module per table, I suppose that another pro for DB defined constraints is that they apply to any other interface that shops may chose to update the DB.

What about other pros and cons?
