JSON Query - Problem with PHP #1028

We are writing a php procedure, to get objects information from the project loaded in bimserver.
For example we need to know all the doors and related guid, to extend the bim information.
Currently we are using api and we are able to call “getDataObjectByOid” and retrieve useful information calling server at “http://localhost/bimserver/json” url .
We have read, that the use of getDataObjectByOid is deprecated and it’s better to use query.
Unfortunately we are not be able to understand how to use the query method in a php procedure.

We have try with this php code, but the response is always empty:

$bimq = new stdClass();
$bimq->type = "IfcDoor";
$json_data = json_encode($bimq);
$post = file_get_contents('http://localhost/bimserver/json',null,stream_context_create(array(
'http' => array(
'protocol_version' => 1.1,
'user_agent' => 'PHPExample',
'method' => 'POST',
'header' => "Content-type: application/json\r\n".
"Connection: close\r\n" .
"Content-length: " . strlen($json_data) . "\r\n",
'content' => $json_data,

Where we can find some indication about how to implement a query call?
Many thanks for your helps in advance.

Now i've seen that i've not specified the version. I tried to query bimserver version 1.5.162 . I apologize for the forgetfulness. Thank you very much
