  • Patent number: 10180823
    Abstract: Systems and methods relate to creating applications using building blocks linked together with metadata. A user interface can enable a user to create an application. Creating the application can include defining a new building block configured to generate output data. The new building block can include one or more existing building blocks and the metadata associated with the existing building blocks. For example, a building block can include at least one input/output (I/O) feature configured to receive inputs and/or generate outputs. Further, the existing building block can correspond to a data structure including external I/O features. The new building block can be linked to an existing building block by mapping an external I/O feature of the existing building block to an open I/O feature of the new building block. The mapping can be stored in metadata associated with the new building block.

  • Patent number: 10176013
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to systems and methodologies for efficiently sampling data for analysis by a pipeline analysis algorithm. The amount of sampled data is maximized without increasing sampling overhead by sampling “non-pipeline activity” data if the subject pipeline is inactive during the sampling time. The non-pipeline activity data is selected to include overall system information that is relevant to the subject pipeline's performance but is not necessarily dependent on whether the subject pipeline is active. In some embodiments, the non-pipeline activity data allows for confirmation of a pipeline performance characteristic that must otherwise be inferred by the subsequent pipeline analysis algorithm from data sampled while the pipeline was active. In some embodiments, the non-pipeline activity data allows the pipeline analysis algorithm to analyze additional performance characteristics that cannot otherwise be inferred from the data sampled while the pipeline was active.

  • Patent number: 10175966
    Abstract: A method and associated computer program product are disclosed for generating an object file for subsequent linking by a linker. The object file comprises a function that references a table of contents (TOC) pointer register. The method comprises generating, in the object file, at least one first annotation that identifies at least one instruction of the function. The at least one instruction has an eliminable reference to the TOC pointer register. The first annotation configures the linker to determine, during the subsequent linking of the object file and based on the at least one first annotation, whether to eliminate the eliminable reference.

  • Patent number: 10169009
    Abstract: Processor hardware detects when memory aliasing occurs, and assures proper operation of the code even in the presence of memory aliasing. Because the hardware can detect and correct for memory aliasing, this allows a compiler to make optimizations such as register promotion even in regions of the code where memory aliasing can occur. The result is code that is more optimized and therefore runs faster.

  • Patent number: 10152311
    Abstract: A method for compiling software code comprises scanning call sites within the code to identify a function that is called with at least one constant argument and creating a list of each call site associated with the function and sets of constant arguments passed to the function. If any common subsets of the constant arguments are shared across a plurality of call sites, a size of the function is estimated. selecting any sets of constant arguments that are used only in one call site. The sizes of specialized functions covering sets of constant arguments that are used in only one call site is estimated. The method comprises creating a first set of specialized versions of the function covering one or more sets of constant arguments that are used in only one call site, and if any common subsets of the constant arguments exist, creating a second set of specialized versions of the function.

  • Patent number: 10146664
    Abstract: A test environment as described herein allows for testing webpages prior to deployment to a website. More particularly, a virtual test environment allows a developer to virtually test webpages instantiated from representations of webpages stored in a repository. In an example of testing, upon a change to a webpage of a website, one or more virtual test environments may be instantiated to test the webpage and associated webpages. In an example of test environment functionality, the test environment may generate templates representing webpages from a base template representing a set of features common to the webpages. Furthermore, a centralized computer may be used to coordinate templates representing webpages by, for example, managing naming. The centralized computer may further track virtual test environments. In a further example of test environment functionality, templates representing webpages may be generated from webpage source code of the webpages.

  • Patent number: 10146524
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for reducing the time needed to deploy updated versions of an application using a deployment pipeline. To do so, a deployment manager may collect statistics reflecting how often any given stage of the deployment pipeline is completed successfully in deploying updates to the application. In cases where a current stage has a sufficient approval percentage, the deployment pipeline may begin deploying an updated version of the application into an environment specified for a subsequent stage of the deployment pipeline, before the current stage of the pipeline is complete. Provided the current stage completes successfully, the subsequent stage can be initiated by activating the pre-deployed versions of the application.

  • Patent number: 10146676
    Abstract: A system and method for performing regression testing on source code provides a data sample to one or more candidate instances executing a candidate version of source code for a code base and provides the data sample to plurality of baseline instances executing a baseline version of the source code. The baseline version of the source code and the candidate version of the source code differ. The regression testing system and method obtains candidate outputs from the one or more candidate instances and obtains baseline outputs from the plurality of baseline instances based on the provided data sample. One or more faults in the candidate version of the source code can be determined by comparing the candidate outputs the baseline outputs. A filter for excluding one or more data fields from the comparison can be generated based on a comparison between baseline outputs from one of the plurality of baseline instances and baseline outputs from another of the plurality of baseline instances.
