 Dear José Manuel Cantera ,

The Mobile Web Initiative Device Description Working Group has reviewed
the comments you sent [1] on the Last Call Working Draft [2] of the Device
Description Repository Simple API published on 4 Apr 2008. Thank you for
having taken the time to review the document and to send us comments!

The Working Group's response to your comment is included below, and has
been implemented in the new version of the document available at:

Please review it carefully and let us know by email at
public-ddwg-comments@w3.org if you agree with it or not before 5 June
2008. In case of disagreement, you are requested to provide a specific
solution for or a path to a consensus with the Working Group. If such a
consensus cannot be achieved, you will be given the opportunity to raise a
formal objection which will then be reviewed by the Director during the
transition of this document to the next stage in the W3C Recommendation


For the Mobile Web Initiative Device Description Working Group,
Matt Womer

Working Group Resolution (LC-1957):
The specification references the most current version of Java where Map is
qualified with the types involved in the mapping. We take on board that
many readers of the specification will be working with older Java
versions, so we propose to add some additional guidance for implementers
to say that "in the case of implementation environments where the default
Map is from Object to Object, such as in Java 1.4, the key and value
parameters should be cast to String".
