I think this might be others doubt as well. Sorry if it seems a naïve/silly

By idempotent, I understand something that you can make as many operations
as possible and it does not change (broadly speaking). For example, (in
theory), when you do an HTTP Get requests, the response would be always the
same, and the state of the resource should not change.

Now, regarding SQLs; this SQL for instance “CREATE TABLE XXX…..” is
idempotent for you (as far as I understood reading this thread), right?

And something like “CREATE or REPLACE TABLE XXX…..” would be
non-idempotent. Did I understand it right?
