  • Patent number: 10318411
    Abstract: A method and system for dynamically testing a web page. A change to the web page is received and in response, the web page is accordingly changed. A delta vector of a change in position of a user interface control in a web browser window is determined. The change in position occurred between a first time before the change to the web page was received and a second time after the change was applied to the web page to change the web page. A user interface control weight value is determined for the user interface control having undergone the change in position. A disruptiveness factor value is determined based on the determined delta vector and the corresponding user interface control weight. A test pattern to be applied to the changed web page is selected depending on the determined disruptiveness factor. The web page is tested in accordance with the test pattern.

  • Patent number: 10268573
    Abstract: The technique herein substantially improves productivity of Annotator developers by providing methods and systems to develop and test Annotators without having to run a full pipeline every time changes are made to a particular Annotator. To this end, preferably a running pipeline is instrumented to enable automated recording of static configuration and dynamically-generated event data as the pipeline is executed. Based on these data, a reusable data model is generated that captures code and other dependencies in the pipeline (e.g., configuration parameters, intermediary CASes, program flow, annotations, and the like). The data model is then used to facilitate testing of Annotators without using the full pipeline (or even major sub-pipelines therein).

  • Patent number: 10261805
    Abstract: A difference in configuration definition between different systems is efficiently extracted. A difference detection device (100) includes a configuration definition acquisition unit (110) and a configuration comparison unit (140). The configuration definition acquisition unit (110) acquires, with respect to different systems, configuration definitions (210) each including components of a system and a reference relation between the components. The configuration comparison unit (140) classifies, based on the reference relation between the components in configuration definition (210) of each of the different systems, the components in each configuration definition (210) into a common component and a difference component between the different systems, and outputs a result of classification.

  • Patent number: 10255049
    Abstract: Techniques are described for providing a non-blocking application object framework allowing parallelization of operation and function calls throughout an application executing within the framework. In one example, a dependency model associated with an application in a non-blocking application object framework is identified, where the application is associated with a plurality of operations and the dependency model defines at least one dependency between at least two of the operations. At runtime of the non-blocking application object framework, the identified dependency model is interpreted. An optimized execution plan of the application is automatically generated in the non-blocking application object framework based on the interpreted dependency model, wherein at least a first portion of the operations of the application are optimized in a sequential execution order based on dependencies defined in the dependency model.

  • Patent number: 10248396
    Abstract: A system for conducting a code review of program source code including translation of content in the program source code may include a source control system. The system may also include a resource file translator to facilitate translation of the content from a first language into second languages. Upon receipt of a code review request, the source control system may notify a workflow manager that the resource files contain the content for translation, and the workflow manager may notify a resource file translator that the program source code contains the content for translation. The resource file translator may cause translation of the resource files into translated resource files. The source control system may receive program source code under review from a code reviewer interface, and the resource file translator may update the program source code under review with the translated resource files.

  • Patent number: 10228921
    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: 10216611
    Abstract: A code testing system determines mistyped identifiers in computer language code. For identifiers of objects in the code, such as variables and functions, the instances of the identifiers are identified in the code and recorded in an occurrence table. Uses of an identifier may be identified as copies of one another based on a hash value of the instance and its location in a function. Hash values for an identifier that are not unique may not be recorded in the instance table. For identifiers that are associated with a single occurrence or a single group of copies, these identifiers are identified as candidates for correction. Suggested corrections are determined based on a comparison with other identifiers in the occurrence table to determine similar identifiers in the occurrence table. If so, the candidate identifier may be identified as likely mistyped and the similar identifier is suggested as a correction.

  • Patent number: 10191735
    Abstract: An action sequence including a plurality of actions and a corresponding input dictionary are obtained. A first container, running an image for a first one of the actions implemented in a first programming language, is instantiated, and the image is executed on the input dictionary to obtain a first action result; the input dictionary is then updated with the first action result to obtain an updated input dictionary. A second container, running an image for a second one of the actions implemented in a second programming language, different than the first programming language, is instantiated, and the image is executed on the updated input dictionary to obtain a second action result; the updated input dictionary is further updated with the second action result to obtain a further updated input dictionary. The input dictionaries are independent of the programming languages.
