WURFL Capabilities

Select from more than 500 properties of each device, called WURFL capabilities, for inclusion in your license.

Some products or trial editions have a limited set of capabilities.

IMPORTANT: WURFL supports two kinds of capabilities:

  • Static capabilities return a property associated with each device object
  • Virtual capabilities return a property whose value is based on the evaluation of other static capabilities or further inspection of parameters found in the HTTP request. Virtual capabilities require different methods to retrieve values, so developers should consult their product documentation.
