However, like any other database, we've got stored-procedures on the System
i and when it makes sense to move some business logic into a stored proc we
do so happily.

Do you have an example of when you felt it was better to have the BL on the
i5 vs. in .NET code. Also, for the apps connecting to the i5, what is your
method of change management all the way through deployment? This would be
one of the killers IMO. If you have to redeploy to a lot of users, what
happens when one of the PC's doesn't update successfully and they are
operating on one-version-back code? With centralized/server-side programs
you just don't have that issue - EVERYONE gets the same version of code
unless you want them to have a different version (i.e. LIBL manipulation).

Note that my questions concern desktop applications and NOT ASP.NET
programs.

Not to jump on your question to Richard, but in our case we treat the System
i like any other database when doing .NET front-ends. That is, the flow and
most business logic is built into the .Net classes.
However, like any other database, we've got stored-procedures on the System
i and when it makes sense to move some business logic into a stored proc we
