A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories. This draft is a work item of the Integrated Directory Services Working Group of the IETF. Title : Simple Nomenclator Query Protocol (SNQP) Author(s) : J. Elliott, J. Ordille Filename : draft-ietf-ids-snqp-00.txt Pages : 30 Date : 06/13/1996 The Simple Nomenclator Query Protocol (SNQP) allows a client to communicate with a descriptive name service or other relational-style query service. The protocol is useful to services that search many data repositories for query responses. Clients can pose queries on relations, list descriptions of relations, and obtain advice on reducing the search time and cost of their queries. Clients are informed of the age of information in caches, and may request more recent information. SNQP provides support for graphical user interfaces. It also supports different types of comparison operators, so services can use SNQP with a variety of back-end servers, e.g. relational database servers, CCSO servers, and servers providing relational views of X.500. SNQP is an ASCII protocol in the request-reply style of SMTP. It was specifically designed for use with the Nomenclator name and information service, and has been useful elsewhere.

Send a message to: firstname.lastname@example.org. In the body type: "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ids-snqp-00.txt". NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE" command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on how to manipulate these messages. For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts@cnri.reston.va.us. Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the Internet-Draft.
