I have database table column which needs to updated after specific duration. One way of doing this is create a job and schedule it after the specific duration .  is there any better way of doing this. To be specific can the same task be accomplished by a trigger which fires on the specified table column after specific duration

Request expert's help in this regard at the earliest.

the other way is to write a stored proceudre and put an infinite loop with the wait for dealy function..
the logic goes as below

step 1: Create a SP
step 2: create an end less loop
step 3: inside the loop put your update statement
step 4: put the wait for dealy statement inside the endless loop.

Now execute the stored procedure.

Drawbacks when compared to SQL Job:

1) if the session is killed, in which the SP is running then the stored procedure will be stopped and you have to re-execute it again.

No, you cannot use a TRIGGER for a time event.  The best option is to create a job to run as frequently as you wish.
