Stored Proc in BLL or DAL??

I asked this question yesterday:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Dot_Net/VB_DOT_NET/Q_22047143.html

That was a test code: testing my DAL Layer.

What I have is a class in BLL which calls a stored proc. The BLL is calling DAL for database connectivity stuff....

I was thinking about it...that class should be in DAL ..correct? I think DAL should call a stored proc, result is passed to BLL and BLL does whatever it needs to do and pass the result back to UI...

I dont think it's correct to have code in BLL to call stored procs or call database directly..is this correct?

yes, I would keep it in the DAL.

I'm a bit confused, what's the test stored procedure for?

I'd stick with the DAL for DB connectivity.

The test procedure you have in your DAL - is it just for testing purposes and will be removed before packaging. If so, you can look into using nUnit and other testing add-ons for VS. They will allow you to create a new project so keep any DB connectivity outside of the BLL.

I do have database connectivity outside BLL, in DAL.

BUT, I have the test stored proc in my BLL not in DAL...and that's what i want to know moving forward...

Should I call stored proc/database "select"/"update"/"insert" from DAL or from BLL?

The test stored proc was to see if I can get results back from the DAL and if it connencts to SQL Server and IBM iSeries...

Then i thought about the 3-tier and was wondering where the stored proc belongs...

Never used nUnit, will look into to.
thanks
