Can we get a ArcServer Service Type that allows straight database query -- of any privileged object -- via the connection in the published MXD? Or a completely non-spatial non-related to anything remotely spatial QueryTask?
Many complaints in the past lead ESRI to include API functionality to query database tables not just SDE registered feature classes. In true ESRI fashion this was done by adding to the QueryTask object and creating "related table" functionality... This still doesn't meet the requirement to query information our web apps require. For instance, I can't relate any spatial data I have to our Employee database table.
