architecture style question

Hi Guys,

A three tier archetecture involves a seperation of the presentation layer, the business logic and the database server.  

Currently, I on my web sites, I have only simple code on the web forms to accept and verify input data from the users.  I then seperate all of the business logic into classes that that execute like minded algorithims, and store like minded private data variables.  However, instead of using stored procedures, I just embed the sql in the classes to hit the database server.

Would this be considered a two tier type of architecture?

Any input is appreciated.

Thanks,

Ryan

To me, that is still one tier - in that everything sits in your one application! But everyone has a different view on it.
Internally, since you embed SQL into your app, it's inherently married to the database server - there goes 1 tier.
At a stretch you can call it 2-tier

So, if I used stored procedures, you would consider it two tier?  How could I then make it into a three tier app?

Using stored procedures means that the Business layer is moved (mostly) to the DB server. That is very clearly a different tier whether internally or externally.  The handover point is the Stored procedure parameters.
As for separation between presentation and model, you've already done that - as long as the input forms do nothing more than capture, and forward on to "model" classes.  i.e. you don't have all sorts of non-view/input capture related code in the forms.
