what are views?..

Answer / pavan_1981

view is one type of database object which doesnt store any
data but fetches its data from the tables on which the view
is built.views can be of two types.one complex and other
simple.depending on type of te view different perations are
allowed on the views.
advatages:
1.views are secure because we can fetch the data from
different tables and present it to the user with cloumn
alias's so tha user wont know the actual column names or
table names.
2.instead of writing a huge join query which u most
frequently use everytime and executing it, we can create a
view using that query and just say for example "select *
from view".this inturn fetches the data u want from the
tables meeting ur requirements.
3.u can grant privilages to the user on the views instead
of giving privilages on the actual tables.this sometimes
help in security.
these are just few advantages to bgin with.still more exist.

Answer / akn

If we have several tables in a DB and we want to view only
specific columns from specific tables we can go for
views.It would also suffice the needs of security sometimes
allowing specific users to see only specific columns based
on the permission that we can configure on the view. Views
also reduce the effort that is required for writing queries
to access specific columns every time
