I have written a couple of posts about 7-8 months back (here and here) on how to call stored procedures from a rails application. After using stored procedures in my app for a while I started to think about whether we really need them. So over a couple of months I discussed it (mainly short discussions about stored procedures not whether to use them or not) with my colleagues, friends, other people and gave some thought to it. If you are new to stored procedures then here is a sort of textbookish definition.
