2.2.4 : Basic WFS Service

A basic WFS server shall implement the Simple WFS operations, and additionally it shall implement the GetFeature operation with the Query action and the GetPropertyValue operation. All these additions to the Simple WFS have been introduced in WFS 2.0, so previous versions of the standard do not have this level. Forgetting about geometries: The GetPropertyValue operation

Sometimes there is the need for getting specific information about features without getting the geometrical description (since that for linestrings or polygons could take long). WFS 2.0 introduces a new operation that is similar to GetFeature but permits the selection of the properties recovered.
