Text-Free Queries

By default, query actions that do not contain any query text return results in the encoding specified in the DefaultLanguageType parameter. If any of the query results are not compatible with this encoding, HPE IDOL Server indicates this in the results.

If you want a query action to return results in a specific encoding, you can add the OutputEncoding parameter to your query. HPE IDOL Server converts all results to this encoding, as long as they are compatible with it. If any of the query results are not compatible with this encoding, HPE IDOL Server returns an appropriate message. You can specify a default value for the OutputEncoding parameter in the DefaultEncoding configuration parameter.

For example:

http://12.3.4.56:4000/action=Suggest&ID=9016&OutputEncoding=EASTERNEUROPEAN_ISO

In this example, HPE IDOL Server converts all query results to EASTERNEUROPEAN_ISO.
