ASP.NET and Stored Procedures

I've been hard coding my stored procedure names each time it is required in the code-behind page, and of cause one can assign it to a private variable at page level, but I would like to know if there is a better, more acceptable practice amongst good ASP.NET Developers?

Thanks!

Yes. You design your application using an n-tier architecture. Your UI (i.e. your code-behind) should know nothing about your data layer. What if you need to rename your sprocs? What if the database changes from SQL Server to Oracle? Things like this need to be accounted for when designing your application. Having an n-tier architecture helps mitigate major changes such as theses.

So the stored procedures are still hard-coded in the data access layer then?

Example from one of the links: command.CommandText = "GetClients";

Effectively yes. Unless you are using some kind of ORM (like Entity Framework), then you would have to hard-code the proc names somewhere.

Thanks for confirming that for me.

I must say that the CodeProject link example is especially helpful in more ways than expected. It's simple, clear, and the application runs as expected.

Because I initially had no real guide on how to do this project I am working on, I ended up doing so many long-winded unnecessary things, but now you've helped to clear up some things for me, especially from a design perspective.

Appreciate it, thanks!
