Uses the Component: GetType

The Get verb is to communicate to a business software component a request for an existing piece or pieces of information to be returned. The Get may be paired with most of the nouns defined in the OAGIS specification.

The response to this request is the Show verb. The behavior of a BOD with a Get verb is quite predictable across the nouns it is paired with.The Get is designed for retrieval of information by using that information's primary retrieval field, or key field. The Get verb may also be used to request several documents at once.

Selection Criteria:  There are two types of selection capabilities for most BOD's that use the Get verb.
