51Degrees Device Detection Java  4.4

Device detection services for 51Degrees Pipeline


This example is available in full on GitHub.

To run this example, you will need to create a resource key. The resource key is used as shorthand to store the particular set of properties you are interested in as well as any associated license keys that entitle you to increased request limits and/or paid-for properties.

You can create a resource key using the 51Degrees Configurator.


The PipelineFilter to intercept requests and perform device detection. The results will be stored in the HttpServletRequest object. The filter will also handle setting response headers (e.g. Accept-CH for User-Agent Client Hints) and serving requests for client-side JavaScript and JSON resources.

The results of detection can be accessed by using a FlowDataProvider which is responsible for managing the lifecycle of the flowData - do NOT dispose

FlowData flowData = flowDataProvider.getFlowData(request);
DeviceData device = flowData.get(DeviceData.class);

Results can also be accessed in client-side code by using the fod object.

window.onload = function () {
fod.complete(function(data) {
var hardwareName = data.device.hardwarename;
alert(hardwareName.join(", "));
