  • Patent number: 10416992
    Abstract: Techniques to update a web application are described. A method includes receiving an application update request for a requested web application from a service worker web application executing in a web browser on a client device, the application update request comprising a cached version indicator for a local cached copy of the requested web application on the client device; determining whether an updated requested web application is available based on the cached version indicator. When the cached version indicator is less than a current version indicator, an archived copy of the previous version of the requested web application indicated by the cached version indicator and a current copy of the current version of the requested web application are retrieved, and a delta update is generated based on the archived copy and current copy. The delta update is sent to the service worker web application. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 10416990
    Abstract: Methods, systems and non-transitory computer readable media involves receiving information of a new library from a patch management repository. A symbolic link to the new shared library is created and a request to an application process to replace a shared library is communicated. To replace the shared library, the application process periodically checks reference state of the shared library till it reaches a free-state. When the shared library reaches the free-state, the application process unloads the shared library from memory space and loads the new shared library to the memory space. The application process continues performing one or more pre-define functions during the replacement of the shared library.

  • Patent number: 10360019
    Abstract: Techniques for managing a display device coupled to a media processing (MP) device are described. An MP logic/module implemented by the MP device can retrieve data from a display device and identify information characterizing the display device in a database based on the retrieved data. The MP logic/module can compare the retrieved data with the identified information and determine, based on the comparison, that software installed on the display device is obsolete, or that one or more settings of the display device has a first configuration. The MP logic/module can also generate a notification based on the determination, which can be displayed on the display device. The MP logic/module can trigger performance of an action based on the determination. Actions can include downloading an updated software to memory, installing the updated software, or changing the one or more settings from the first configuration to a second, more optimal configuration.
