I don't deal with large applications all that often and I've just come across two where one has to read data from the other's. It doesn't make sense to put the two databases together, or to have some n-tier solution where web services are called and entities are cached etc. Direct access to the database gives us best performance and is reasonably maintainable.
Right now we're using views and synonyms to surface parts of the first database into the second. It's not a huge burden, but less elegant than, say, EF understanding multiple database and being able to query across them.Todd Aspeotis supported this idea ·
