  • Patent number: 11456971
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to handling queues. A server-based platform, in some embodiments, accesses queue information that includes performance attributes for a plurality of queues storing one or more messages corresponding to one or more applications. In some embodiments, the platform assigns, based on the performance attributes, a corresponding set of the plurality of queues to each of a plurality of processing nodes of the platform. In some embodiments, the assigning of a corresponding set of queues to a given one of the plurality of processing nodes causes instantiation of: a first set of one or more dequeuing threads and a second set of one or more processing threads. The dequeuing threads may be executable to dequeue one or more messages stored in the corresponding set of queues. The processing threads may be executable to perform one or more tasks specified in the dequeued one or more messages.

  • Publication number: 20220276861
    Abstract: In a cloud computing environment, a configurable transaction status interface of an enterprise computing platform enables application developers to customize applications efficiently. The configurable transaction status interface includes a global variable that is populated using a method for implementing a configurable status map that maps a transaction result to the global variable without having to customize the application. The configurable transaction status interface allows third party vendors of transaction gateways to use the configurable status map to map one or more of their gateway-specific transaction results to a generic status defined in the global variable. The vendors manage the configurable status map in their own namespace independently of the application with which they are interfacing.
