As many of you already know that SimpleQuery allows you to access any ESR/ID object in raw xml or encoded form.

http://host:port/rep/support/SimpleQuery for ESR  Objects

http://host:port/dir/support/SimpleQuery for  ID Objects

But DataType has got special treatment. It allows displaying the details in HTML format as well.

Unfortunately HTML feature is available only for PI >=7.1. For PI < 7.0, you can display Data Type as xml like other objects.

P provides Data Type in HTML format as shown below.

R provides raw xml as usual as shown below:

    Hi Sunil,

    Really a very useful blog. However, I have a question about invoking the SimpleQuery Url. Is it possible to invoke URL programatically and submit the query through a program?

    Regards,
    Sathya
