The browse query results object consists of a browseResults element and its children. The XML response contains a representation of the input item set, which may include a set of index items and a set of children item sets. The child item sets use the same XML representation, and can therefore also contain information about their index items and children item sets.

The browse response contains information about the index item which allows an application to construct a View Item request to view a browsed item, as described in the Viewing in Context chapter.

Note that in this query type, the actual document of the result is located in the browseResults/category/documents element. This structure differs from that of other query response types.
