comment Do stored procedures violate three-tier separation?
In my 20 years experience in a big company, stored procedures are not used for returning rows (views are used for that), nor are they used for every simple inserts or updates (inline sql is used for that). They are used mostly for long operations that require no user interaction, requiring iterating large sets of data for summarizing and doing inserts or updates based on some business logic, on a row basis, like end-of-moth closings or dayly batch processing of transactions. The author of the article seems to have being using stored procedures to return rows and that's why he heates them.

The page you link has several code examples. Please tell which one, specifically you think would run the same without a constructor. If possible, paste the code in your question. Otherwise the question is too vague.
