Mobile Device Information 1.2.2
The Mobile Device Information project is a Java Swing application that provides desktop interface access to the WURFL.
The WURFL contains information about the capabilities of a huge number of wireless devices.
The project has been created by me (Jim McLachlan), a software consultant specialising in Java projects for mobile devices (primarily J2METM clients with J2EETM back-ends).
Part of my consultancy work has been the "education" of clients to the limitations of the cross-platform nature of Java on mobile devices. I have regularly had to field questions like "Is the < mobile device > MIDP-1.0 or MIDP-2.0 compliant?" and "How many different MIDP-2.0 devices are there?".
As part of my recent web site development, where I intend to sell my J2ME applications, I found myself in need of some "rich content" that would be useful to consumers and not just developers. Hopefully, this tool will be useful to people wanting to know more about their devices.
What's New in This Release:
· This release finally resolves problems with the id pseudo-capability.
· Version 1.2 caused make/model data to be hidden; 1.2.1 fixed this, but added a bug which used the fallback instead of the current "id".
