Abstract: CC/PP and UAProf are two related standards, proposed by the W3C and the Open Mobile Alliance respectively, that allow devices to communicate their capabilities to other devices such as web servers. This paper explores ways of guaranteeing interoperability in CC/PP aware devices by validating their capability descriptions. Firstly it explains what validation can be performed on CC/PP and UAProf profiles. Secondly it investigates two methods of performing validation: using an XML Schema derived automatically from the RDF Schema describing the vocabulary and a more comprehensive validation technique implemented using an RDF parser. Methods of adding additional information to RDF Schemas that can aid the validation process are also discussed. Notes: Charles Smith, Trinity College Dublin, Dublin, Eire.
