What is the difference between a Site Definition and a Site Template?

  
Ans. Site Definitions are stored on the hard drive of the SharePoint front end servers. They are used by the SharePoint application to generate the sites users can create. Site Templates are created by users as a copy of a site they have configured and modified so that they do not have to recreate lists, libraries, views and columns every time they need a new instance of a site.

we create a Custom List in SharePoint site, we need to map the list to View. By default when we create List, it will be mapped to "All Items" standard view. But we can change the view for the list.

Standard View - View data on a Web page. You can choose from a list of display styles.
Calendar View - View data as a daily, weekly, or monthly calendar.
Datasheet View - View data in an editable spreadsheet format that is convenient for bulk editing and quick customization.
Gantt View - View list items in a Gantt chart to see a graphical representation of how a team's tasks relate over time.
Custom View in SharePoint Designer - Start SharePoint Designer to create a new view for this list with capabilities such as conditional formatting. (More...)

Difference between Site Definition and Site Template

  
Site Definitions:

. Files are on disk, better performance.
. Highly customizable and extensible (XML and .NET code is much more flexible than UI)
. Can provision multiple webs *
. Complex to create
. Requires admin access to server for deploying.
. Modifying the site definition after provisioning at least one site from it is not supported and might break existing sites.

Site Templates:

. Files are in database, less efficient.
. Not easily extensible (You are limited by what UI offers)
. Can only provision one web
. Easier to create
. Installable from a Web UI by site owners.
. Custom templates can be modified without affecting existing sites that have been created from the templates(**).
