Subject Are stored procedures in triggers a good idea?
Author Daniel L. Miller
I seem to remember reading somewhere that calling stored procedures from
triggers wasn't a good idea. But now I'm not Googling a reference to
that. So I'll ask from scratch:

Other than (what I would think to be minimal) increase in overhead, why
would I NOT want to use stored procedures in triggers? As an example -
if I implement my handy-dandy auto-increment with built-in generator
protection, I want that same before-insert trigger in each of my umpteen
tables. Then, if I later want to change that behaviour - system wide -
I just want to have to change it once. So having a generic before
insert trigger procedure - called with parameters from the before insert
triggers, SEEMS reasonable.

What am I missing?
