A recursive query is a named query expression that references itself in its definition. The self-referencing capability gives the user a simple way to search a table using iterative self-join and set operations.

The recursive query feature benefits the user by reducing the complexity of the queries and allowing a certain class of queries to execute more efficiently.

Recursive queries are implemented using the WITH RECURSIVE clause in the statement and the RECURSIVE clause in the CREATE VIEW statement.
