Enumerate possible values of virtual capabilities

Postby rocketfuel » Fri Dec 13, 2013 4:03 pm

We are evaluating the WURFL library capabilities at Rocket Fuel, and need some technical help. Could you advice how we can get the best support, or help forward our issue to the right person?

We got the requirement to enumerate possible values of several virtual capabilities including "advertised_device_os" and the corresponding "advertised_device_os_version", when the WURFL device database .xml file got updated every week. We are wondering if you provide any interface for these value sets and maintain it regularly along with the WURFL device database updates.

We are able to get the value sets for non-virtual capabilities by iterating over WURFLModel.getAllDevices() and call ModelDevice.getCapability("capability_name"). However, non-virtual capabilities are only for mobile devices, and we need data about virtual capabilities to handle desktop computer cases at the same time and to obtain more accurate properties of mobile devices. While APIs similar to above is preferable, any e-form regularly is also useful to us.

Thank you for helping with our evaluation,

Hi there,

The advertised_* capabilities are virtual capabilities and they are not linked to the WURFL.xml snapshots. They are instead computed by the WURFL API on the fly and as such are not enumerable like the standard capabilities are.
