API and Compatibility

Postby MTSPortalIT » Fri Sep 27, 2013 3:44 pm

Hi there,

We employ WURFL within our organization, alongside the JAVA API. We're currently looking into updating our WURFL XML database, but noticed that there's an API upgrade as well. What I'm wondering is if there's any degree of compatibility between certain versions of the API and the database, or if they're relatively uncoupled and we can perform one update/upgrade without affecting/breaking the other?

Hi, yes, we are in the process of releasing API 1.5 officially this weekend, and, as far as Java is concerned, you can already download the new version from the site as of a couple of hours ago.

You ask if the database and the API are relatively uncoupled and you can perform one update/upgrade without affecting/breaking the other. The answer is yes, they are relatively uncoupled. In the sense that you can use one with the other, but newer versions of the API may be relying on the presence of certain "catch all" families that may be missing in old versions of the wurfl.xml. Anyway, as a commercial licensee, you have access to weekly updates in your customer vault, so this shouldn't be an issue:

Does this answer your question?
