Is it possible to use the arcgis infrastructure so as to perform queries on DB tables that do not contain spatial information?

For example, considering I have a RDBMS where I have a table namely "Articles" with no geographic info. Could I perform a query by article title through arcgis, so as to avoid following different search/filtering approaches for spatial and non spatial data ?

  • I dont want to perform a DB query using javascprit. My issue is to perform query through the ArcGis JS API and using QueryTasks , Query Objects or something like that – Smalis Sep 30 '14 at 12:10

Yes you can add any non-spatial table to your gis-service (mxd) and access it through the REST interface. Query Layer Requests for example work as expected.
