    extended set capabilities certification

    Hello.
    I am trying to understand what is required when submitting an application to
    Symbian signed certification, in regards to extended set capabilities.
    Symbian documentation states :
    "
    1. During the submit process at www.symbiansigned.com you will be required to provide individual
    rationale for using each Extended Set capability
    2. You will also be required to provide a declaration of the breakdown of which APIs are used
    requiring the capability
    "

    - i can't really understand what is the meaning of 'the rationale' part, I mean, what
    other rationale for a using a capability could exist, other then being required to
    do so by one of the API the application uses (and these APIs are dealt with in
    the 2nd section, right ?)

    Thank you

    Re: extended set capabilities certification

    Rationale in this means why do you want the capability. Example:
    "To have a feature A in my application I use this API and that is the reason why I need this capability."

    Thank you
    For example if your application reads network parameters then you might have used "ReadDeviceData" capability. Describe about what you have used and why, in context of functionalities with corresponding capabilities.
