  • Patent number: 9977658
    Abstract: A process and associated system for code validation using content assist. A first list of items is presented to a code developer who is writing software code during operation of a content assist in an integrated development environment (IDE). Each item of the first list of items is enabled for validation. An item selected by the developer from the first list of items is received during the operation of the content assist. A result for the selected item is generated by (i) executing the selected item using at least one value received as input from the developer during the operation of the content assist and (ii) ascertaining whether executing the selected item requires prior initialization of a value of a variable. During the operation of the content assist, the result is displayed to the developer.

  • Patent number: 9952848
    Abstract: A mobile device includes a user interface allowing a user to enter search parameters. A query wrapper module generates a query wrapper based on the entered search parameters. A search system communication module transmits the query wrapper to a search system and receives a set of results from the search system. A first result corresponds to a first applet. A results presentation module displays the set of results to the user. An access mechanism module, in response to the user selecting the first result, selectively triggers an applet request to be sent to an applet distribution system. The applet request instructs the applet distribution system to transmit the first applet to the mobile device. The first applet includes native code for execution on an operating system of the mobile device. The first applet from the applet distribution system is executed.

  • Patent number: 9880821
    Abstract: An optimizing compiler includes a vector optimization mechanism that optimizes vector operations that are reformatting-resistant, such as source instructions that do not have a corresponding reformatting operation, sink instructions that do not have a corresponding reformatting operation, a source instruction that is a scalar value, a sink instruction that may produce a scalar value, and an internal operation that depends on lanes being in a specified order. The ability to optimize vector instructions that are reformatting-resistant reduces the number of operations to improve the run-time performance of the code.

  • Patent number: 9870304
    Abstract: A system for verifying historical artifacts in disparate source control systems. The system comprising a computer processor, a computer-readable hardware storage medium, and program code embodied with the computer-readable hardware storage medium for execution by the computer processor to implement a method for obtaining historical artifacts from a target repository; obtaining historical artifacts from a source repository; and verifying the historical artifacts in the target repository match the historical artifacts in the source repository. Verification further comprises comparing commit data in the historical artifacts in the target repository with commit data in the historical artifacts in the source repository; and evaluating whether each commit data event in the historical artifacts in the target repository is equivalent to the corresponding commit data event in the historical artifacts in the source repository.

  • Patent number: 9870237
    Abstract: A system and method can support distributed class loading in a computing environment, such as a virtual machine. A class loader can break a classpath into one or more subsets of a classpath, wherein the classpath is associated with a class. Furthermore, the class loader can use one or more threads to locate the class based on said one or more subsets of the classpath. Then, the class loader can load the class after a said thread locates the class.

  • Patent number: 9841971
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide a system that facilitates execution of an application that is updated after undergoing an approval process with a digital application distribution platform on an electronic device. During operation, the system obtains content for display within the application from a server. Next, the system identifies, within the content, an update to the application. The system then modifies execution of the application during runtime of the application by applying the update without reloading the application on the electronic device and without downloading the update from the digital application distribution platform.

  • Patent number: 9811448
    Abstract: A computer implemented method of software testing may include obtaining multiple interactive elements from an event-driven software application. The interactive elements may be configured to be selected by a user and when selected result in an event in the event-driven software application. The method may also include determining which of the interactive elements may be user interactive in a first state of the event-driven software application. In some embodiments, determining which of the interactive elements may be user interactive may include obtaining one or more coordinates of a first interactive element and determining if the first interactive element is a top layer interactive element at any one of the one or more coordinates. The method may further include testing the event-driven software application based on the user interactive elements.

  • Patent number: 9753706
    Abstract: A version of the source file is created that includes source code from a source file, and at least a portion of a client-side scripting language file (CSSLF) for generating at least a portion of markup language for a web page to be served to a client device using a webserver. A processor associates metadata with a preprocessed directive (PPD) and a version of the source file (VSF). The metadata can include at least the portion of the CSSLF. The webserver can then retrieve, from a database, only the metadata associated with the PPD in the VSF such that the entire source file does not need to be retrieved. When a request for the metadata associated with the VSF is received, at least the portion of the markup language for the web page can be generated in accordance with the metadata associated with the PPD and the VSF.

  • Patent number: 9733913
    Abstract: Methods and systems to convert a scalar computer program loop having loop-carried dependences into a vector computer program loop are disclosed. One such method includes, replacing the scalar recurrence operation in the scalar computer program loop with a first vector summing operation and a first vector recurrence operation. The first vector summing operation is to generate a first running sum and the first vector recurrence operation is to generate a first vector. In some examples, the first vector recurrence operation is based on the scalar recurrence operation. Disclosed methods also include inserting: 1) a renaming operation to rename the first vector, 2) a second vector summing operation that is to generate a second running sum; and 3) a second vector recurrence operation to generate a second vector based on the renamed first vector.
