Besides instantiating the object you need just two lines of code to get a result from the database in a variety of formats.Using the Joomla database layer ensures a maximum of compatibility and flexibility for your extension.The use case for ad-hoc addition of argument names is typically for end-user code that is also using a custom compilation scheme which consumes the additional arguments.Compare this Clause Element to the given Clause Element.Special semantics regarding UNION can also be employed to allow “recursive” queries, where a SELECT statement can draw upon the set of rows that have previously been selected.CTEs can also be applied to DML constructs UPDATE, INSERT and DELETE on some databases, both as a source of CTE rows when combined with RETURNING, as well as a consumer of CTE rows.

An updatable view is one which allows performing a UPDATE command on itself without affecting any other table. The view is defined based on one and only one table. The view must include the PRIMARY KEY of the table based upon which the view has been created. The view should not have any field made out of aggregate functions. The view must not have any DISTINCT clause in its definition. The view must not have any GROUP BY or HAVING clause in its definition. The view must not have any SUBQUERIES in its definitions. If the view you want to update is based upon another view, the later should be updatable. Any of the selected output fields (of the view) must not use constants, strings or value expressions.
