MySQL Trigger and View


The MySQL trigger is a database object that is associated with a table. It will be activated when a defined action is executed for the table. The trigger can be executed when you run one of the following MySQL statements on the table: INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE. It can be invoked before or after the event which means it can be schedule to run at certain time.


A view works like a table, but it is not a table. It never exists; it is only a prepared SQL statement that is run when you reference the view name. 


MySQL creates a temporary table based on the view definition statement and then executes the incoming query on this temporary table.

First, MySQL combines the incoming query with the query defined the view into one query. Then, MySQL executes the combined query
