Can a Query Class update multiple tables at once ?
Also keep in mind that logging changes isn’t just about what you’re
users do when they are nicely logged in through your client app.
It’s also about that forgetful developer that need to make that quick
enhancements to your app and forgets he also needs to call the logging code.
It’s also about logging what any hacker that somehow managed to get
around your carefully crafted logic to make changes directly on a table.
The trigger ensures that any change on your table gets logged, no
questions asked, no way around it, thanks for coming, there you go.
I love triggers.
