Does External objects support triggers?


Needed scenarion:
I have an inventory table is SAP Busines One database.
I need to be able to send alert to my Saleforce users when the invnetory list is being updated (under certain conditions)
I am thinking to utilize the new External Object feature.

Do you know If I can create triggers for an external object in Salesforce?

As far as I know external objects don't support triggers. It's said in the documentation: https://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewHelpDoc?id=limits_external_data.htm&language=en_US
