A view may be thought of as a virtual table, that is, a table that does not really exist in its own right but is instead derived from one or more underlying base table. In other words, there is no stored file that direct represents the view instead a definition of view is stored in data dictionary.
Growth and restructuring of base tables is not reflected in views. Thus the view can insulate users from the effects of restructuring and growth in the database. Hence accounts for logical data independence.

There are two type of views:

1,simple view

2,complex view

The dynamic result of one or more relational operations operating on base relations to produce new relation.creating view: create view View_Name as select query.Basically we use views for 1. to reduce the complexity in writing queries  --> go with view resolution2. To improve performance --> go with materializing view  (remember if the frequency of executing select query is more than the frequency of updating then only go with this) Rajavardhan Sarkapally

A view is a virtual table, which provides access to a subset of columns from one or more tables. It is a query stored as an object in the database, which does not have its own data.
