RoR and stored procedures

I think, in general, people using Rails prefer to have all their code within their Rails app rather than use stored procedures.

I use stored procs all the time with Rails, because I prefer to have the database "protect itself" from bad data, rather than rely on the application/s to do it for me. That's the big issue for me, although I also use stored procs with Rails for other purposes.

It seems to be as much individual preference, and different experiences, as anything else - I don't believe either approach is "better" than the other.
