Discussion on: When is it a good idea to use stored procedures?

As a developer the only time I have used stored procedures was when I spent 2 years working with Oracle tools doing Business Intelligence / Data warehousing. Since it was very DB focused using stored procedures made sense and was helpful.

The remainder of my career has being doing web development and I have never used stored procedures in this context since we want the business logic to be in the web application. Also, I would think having stored procedures would be a pain from a code repository and deployment point of view.
