C business code vs Event Rule

We are currently writing our own OneWorld development guide & standards. One
question that is always coming up is
on which criteria do we choose to program in Event Rule vs C code?

Looking for feedback from the field.

Hi!
In general i suggest programming Business Functions in NER - it's simplier.
If dinamic data e.g. where storage capacity is not limited is needed you
will have to code in C using JDE's API calls - quite an ugly thing. On the
other hand you can always use work tables in NER substituting what OW solves
with Cache...

I will second that opinion...

Use NER whenever possible. There are only a few situations I know of that require writing c code: 1 - using cache APIs; 2 - calling outside programs (ie, calling an RPG program or something similar)
