Different web-enabled devices have different input, output, hardware,
software, network and browser capabilities. In order for a web server or
web-based application to provide optimized content to different clients it
requires a description of the capabilities of the client known as the
delivery context. Recently two new compatible standards have been created
for describing delivery context: Composite Capabilities / Preferences
Profile (CC/PP) created by the W3C and User Agent Profile (UAProf) created
by the WAP Forum. 

DELI is an open-source library developed at HP Labs that allows Java
servlets to resolve HTTP requests containing delivery context information
from CC/PP or UAProf capable devices and query the resolved profile. It also
provides support for legacy devices so that the proprietary delivery context
descriptions currently used by applications can be replaced by standardised
CC/PP descriptions.
