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

I didn't see it with my own eyes, but our ex-CTO allegedly built a massive property search site for his previous company, and it only made one stored procedure call per pageview, returning every single bit of info current page needed in one go.

Haven't tried it in practice, but sounds like an interesting idea. Assuming that the "win" was because it takes time to connect from server to DB server, then return results, so saving a tiny bit of time for every single DB query, it added up.
