your approach is actually no better than what was there before, because it does not enforce any order or guarantee a valid object anymore than how it was before. If you really want to do it correctly look at something like this

comment How does a surname of Null cause problems in many databases?
irregardless of what happens before a value gets to the database this is not a problem in any databases period. Sql injection is not what they are talking about either. So this is a fundamentally flawed question because it is based on a precondition that just does not exist.

@StevenBurnap - if you have to ask this question you will not understand the answer, which is in my comment. the keyword null is not the same thing as the String with the 4 bytes "null". But here goes; That is not how databases compare things. null is a special value that requires a special keyword to compare against in SQL. IS NULL vs using the = which compares non-null things. So there is not a single existing RDBMS that uses the SQL language that would have the problem with someone's name being entered in as a String with the value of `"Null'".

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the entire premise is false, plain and simple. null != "null" Barring a deliberate sql injection attack on a poorly written application it is not a problem and is definitely not a ubiquitous database problem.

@Giorgio - I went to art school for 5 years, both of those are very familiar to me and not familiar to enough computer science majors.
