"Write Content Once, Deliver It To Any Device!"
Customizing content for different
devices with widely varying capabilities, and for different users,
requires significant investments of time and effort.
CC/PP which stands for Composite Capabilities/Preferences Profiles is designed by W3C to help developer in writing such applications. CC/PP is a system to describe what is called as delivery context - a set of attributes to tell what an user agent (web browser) is capable of doing and what are user preferences. The idea is that, upon requesting a web page, browser communicate their CC/PP info to the server. The CC/PP aware server then can adapt the content acording to the device capability.
JSR 188 has created a set of standard java API for providing CC/PP information to any java application.
Here is a good article to know more about Composite Capabilities/Preference Profiles and JSR 188.
