comment Is it sometimes reasonable to cut corners and expect to re-write software in a couple of years?
@jdv totally agreed. I view the role of the architect as the person that develops this long term understanding of the business direction and translates that into balancing different quality aspects in technical implementations.

comment Why do relational databases only accept SQL queries?
If you take a look at LINQ to Entities for .NET, it has a syntax that is very similar to what you are proposing. It is a .NET-specific API for accessing databases, which is translated to standards-based SQL behind the scenes. So in a certain sense you get the best of both worlds. I imagine that similar technologies could exist (or already exist) for other languages. msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb386964.aspx

comment Best option for PDF viewer embedded in web app
Well, this was on a system I was working on over a year ago, but basically there were existing PDFs that we were pulling from a document repository. Converting all of them to web pages was not an option.
