RuleGen 3.0 – the latest, leanest and most robust solution for complex data constraints in an Oracle Database0
No matter how complex the enterprise and application architectures become, no matter the number of tiers, services, devices and user interfaces – at the heart of most enterprises will be a relational database.
And no matter how hard we try to implement a fully service based architecture or a multi-purpose business tier (for example using EJBs) – we will have multiple routes to the database and the data in it. Data will be manipulated through web applications, web services, client/server applications, batch database jobs, application managers working directly against the database from the command line or TOAD-like tools. If for no other reason – that by itself is an overridding motivation for enforcing every data constraint at the lowest possible level – the one level that none of these channels can avoid: the database itself. In addition to the fact that only enforcement inside the database can provide real integrity (and what the hack would be semi-real integrity?), for most data rules (especially complex ones) implementation inside the database is the most performant, scalable, maintainable, managable, agile, elegant and easy to implement as well.
