@infogulch: the query optimizer should be smarter than that. See SQL Fiddle: sqlfiddle.com/#!6/d5e86/2

comment What are the advantages of pass by value?
@AdamZuckerman: does "passed in variable" mean passed in object, the variable in the calling function or the local parameter? Not knowing the difference between these is a common misunderstanding that leads to people using by ref when they shouldn't. By Ref is used to change the variable in the calling function, something that is a fairly uncommon necessity even in languages without support for returning multiple values.

comment What are the advantages of pass by value?
@AdamZuckerman: if you are passing by ref when you don't need to (and I am includinging performance reasons when dealing with large structures as "need to") you are doing the next programmer to work on your code a disservice, and that is assuming you understand what you are doing. It is non-standard behaviour which can introduce subtle and hard to track down bugs. It makes all of your variables globals.

comment How do I make a domain model that doesn't violate OOP?
@davidkennedy85: which part? Private to avoid invalid state? If they want to create an invalid state, they probably can. Reducing system complexity is generally beneficial, but not a goal in and of itself.

comment What is the applicability of CORS?
None. But the browsers do it anyway, because they can't tell the difference between a web service that provides weather information or Amber alerts and a banking transaction that says to send all your money to an account in the Cayman Islands. If you could rely upon banks and everyone else to use HTTPS CORS wouldn't have been necessary (because https request could have been refused). I would bet that one of the alternatives to CORS before it got so established was to get browsers to allow XMLHttpRequests on a non-standard port.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about legal advice.

@JensG: but it's not a peer doing the review in the OP's situation.
