What is SQL view? Why use View instead of a Table? Advantages and Drawbacks

What is SQL view?
The View is a virtual table, which not create physically, it create logically only. We insert, update & delete the records from a view.

In view there are no any physical relations in the database and the view is a virtual table based on the result set of an SQL statement.

A table contains data but the View dose not stored set of data values in a database and the view is only a SELECT statement.

A view can combine columns/rows from multiple tables.

Views can be used as security mechanisms and its display only those data that you granting the permissions in this view.

When table is dropped or modified, view becomes inactive; it depends on the table objects.

If we querying from views, it will takes more time than directly querying from the tables.

We can lose information about relations (primary, foreign keys).
