From: Terrence Enger
The more basic rules clearly should be enforced by (at least) the
database definition itself.

We kind-of got into that when Relational DBMS products first began offering that capability, but have since moved away from it, in favor of keeping business rules in RPG service programs, rather than dividing responsibility for business rules between DBAs and application developers - who don't always communicate with each other. Just to be consistent - keep rules in one place - under one responsibility.

Nathan.
