Especially if you're in a real homogenous environment, with potentially other applications writing to the same database, it can pay to move your validation step into the database. Create constraints and checks that verify the integrity and correctness of the data at insert-time, and be sure that when you do your inserts and updates you're checking for errors and propogating them out.

When designing major database-driven applications, it pays to move certain aspects of your functionality into the database itself.

Plus, like I alluded to above, if you have more than one application writing to the same database, these constraints ensure a common set of validation across all applications.

Just some thoughts; they may not be applicable to this particular case, though.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible editor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
