  • Patent number: 10528337
    Abstract: A method, computer program product, and computer system for constructing, by a computing device, a dependency graph using dependency links provided between layers of an image. Versions of the image may be inspected. Update frequencies of the layers of the image may be identified. A rank to the layers of the image may be assigned based upon, at least in part, the update frequencies of the layers of the image. A new layer arrangement for the image may be generated by ordering the new layer arrangement between a lowest ranked layer and a highest ranked layer based upon, at least in part, the dependency graph. A new standardized deployment image may be built using the image layers reordered in the new layer arrangement.

  • Patent number: 10467027
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a mobile App to provide a runtime environment on a mobile device. As part of start up processing, the mobile App can receive a resource bundle that contains an entry point application module and one or more resource modules. In some embodiments, the resource bundle contains no resource modules. The mobile App can load the entry point application module without loading the resource modules into the runtime environment, and start code execution. When a request for a resource module is encountered during code execution, the mobile App can access the requested resource module and load it into the runtime environment.

  • Patent number: 10466990
    Abstract: A method and system generates extended patterns from base patterns and tests the extended patterns. The patterns correspond to configurations for implementing cloud-based applications. The patterns are extendable to make additional extended patterns. Extended patterns carry the characteristics of the patterns from which they were extended. Updating a base pattern with new security measures causes a cascade effect that updates all extended patterns that descend from the base pattern. The method and system automatically stacks and launches applications according to the extended patterns.

  • Patent number: 10394700
    Abstract: A method and system generates sufficient sample data sets for efficiently and accurately testing a new calculation for preparing a portion of an electronic document for users of an electronic document preparation system. The method and system prepares the new calculation and gathers historical user data related to previously prepared electronic documents for a large number of historical users. The method and system generates a representative value for each historical user data, based on the sections of a previous version of electronic document preparation software which were executed for each historical user in preparing electronic documents for the historical users. The method and system groups the historical users based on the hash values which indicates the historical user's behavior in the software. The groups are then sampled by selecting a small number of historical users from each group.
