Context Engine Webinar from John Winter

An excellent webinar from John Winter on our Context Engine. Good overview of the Tridion Context Engine basics along with overview of different mobile web development techniques - RWD, mobile only site & RESS.

To answer to a couple of John's questions...

Q: Why do you need to include discover-min.js in your web page

<script src="js/discover-min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
A: This JavaScript file does client side detection of some context properties, e.g. browser.displayWidth, browser.displayHeight, browser.displayColorDepth and device.pixelRatio.
Q: How do you update an existing device database
A: Run the same command as you used for the database initialisation, except swap the word seed for update, e.g.

java -Xms1028m -jar lib/cwd_engine-2011.jar \
