WURFL Microservice

Access WURFL Device Detection by deploying WURFL Microservice. Integrate WURFL into your application through one of several languages supported in the Client APIs: Golang, Java, .NET, Node.js, and PHP.

The Client API relies on the availability of a WURFL Microservice HTTP server that you can deploy through Docker (ScientiaMobile’s private Docker repo) or through the Cloud providers of your choice (AWS Marketplace, Azure Marketplace).

WURFL Microservice will map HTTP requests to the profile of the device and browser that generated them.  Updates to the latest WURFL data and WURFL API logic are automatic and transparent.

  • Device Capabilities

    ScientiaMobile offers a wide selection of WURFL capabilities from which commercially-licensed users can choose. These include virtual capabilities that combine the logic of several core capabilities. For example, “form_factor” will identify the device as “desktop”, “smartphone”, “tablet”, or several other classifications of devices. This saves developers effort needed to create their own logic to address common business questions. Developers can use these capabilities to provide more fine-grained optimization, control, and analytics.

    Likewise, ScientiaMobile’s premium WURFL capabilities can provide valuable insights into the economic profiles of enterprise’s website visitors. For example, using ScientiaMobile’s “MSRP,” clients can instantly learn the price of a visitor’s smartphone. With this insight into the affluence and willingness to purchase of individual users, eCommerce and advertisers can tailor offers and ads appropriately.

    WURFL Microservice for AWS or Azure marketplace have pre-defined sets of WURFL capabilities designed to match most users needs out of the box. If more flexibility is required, then WURFL Microservice for Docker can be customized.
