I have found SQL functions to be really useful. Using them more and more.
Maybe if you are using Views to encapsulate and reuse business logic you
should think in terms of what functions can do for you.

Hi,

I'm developing a new application and trying to have the DB do as much of
the work as possible.
So, I'm incorporating SQL Views but finding the throughput underwhelming.
Granted that some of the views are based on other views (in keeping with
the attempt to have the DB do some work for me)
but it appears that every time a view is queried the views are rebuilt by
the OS.

I read somewhere that Views can be considered somewhat like logical files,
but at least logicals
can be set to have immediate updates as underlying physicals change. Views
have no such attribute settings.

So, what's considered best practices for SQL Views?
Should I just rewrite these things as logicals?
