DDR Simple API published

The W3C MWI Device Description Working Group has published the First Public and Last Call Working Draft of Device Description Repository Simple API. Web content delivered to mobile devices usually benefits from being tailored to take into account a range of factors such as screen size, markup language support and image format support. Such information is stored in "Device Description Repositories" (DDRs). This document describes a simple API for access to DDRs, in order to ease and promote the development of Web content that adapts to its Delivery Context. Comments are welcome through 1 May. The document includes links to Java and JavaDoc for the API, and also IDL and WSDL are provided. Additional implementation languages will be demonstrated via the DDWG home page in due course. On behalf of the DDWG Rotan Hanrahan Chair
