I am a developer specializing in web applications. Currently, I work on a large application built on Java, JRuby, and Rails. I've also written web services in Python using Django and the combination of Pyramid and Cornice. I am interested in practical programming education, service-oriented architecture and design, and functional programming. My current personal interest is Clojure.

comment Client times out, while MySQL query remains running?
Is there a standard, robust way to run KILL against processes that have been running for a long time, or is it usually done via a bash script/cron job?

comment How can I store function names to be executed on a subset of rows?
Will using a cursor like this--which would result in two to five passes depending on the client--be more efficient?

I can, but my understanding is that the performance is abysmal...

comment How can I store function names to be executed on a subset of rows?
Okay, I can see your point. However, how do I take these arbitrary actions which are connected to the type of account, and build them into a case statement that is going to be efficiently executed? I may end up with a hundred-line case statement based on the contents of a table. Can I build and compile that once, to make it more efficient?

If I use a CASE statement, we lose per-client account types and functions, unless I rewrite the stored procedure per client, which is not an option.

There are some functions which are shared, and some which are unique. I am not ruling out polymorphism based on account type, either, although it does not exist at the moment.
