comment When is it appropriate to do calculations in front-end?
@JamesAnderson There's no longer "the front-end". There can be several front-ends to the same database, or several databases to several front-ends. Also, having the back-end enforce business rules doesn't mean the front-end is prohibited to do it. I highlighted that in the second bullet point.
