 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:
http://www.w3.org/2005/MWI/DDWG/drafts/api/080525.

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 Track.

Thanks,

For the Mobile Web Initiative Device Description Working Group, Matt Womer W3C Staff Contact

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".
