  • Patent number: 10210072
    Abstract: A method identifies syntaxes of disparately syntaxed components of a message file. One or more processors receive a message at a computer, where the message comprises disparately syntaxed components. Processor(s) detect a selection of a selected component from the disparately syntaxed components. Processor(s) display a description of a syntax used by the selected component on a user interface, where the description of the syntax displayed on the user interface comprises a description of what each data element, within the selected component, represents. Processor(s) identify a set of leading characters for the selected component, where the set of leading characters for the selected component organizes the disparately syntaxed components according to their respective syntax rules.

  • Patent number: 10146749
    Abstract: An embodiment for tracking JavaScript actions in a rich Internet application, receives a document object model (DOM) representative of a particular page of an application at a particular time and analyzes the DOM received to identify each JavaScript action on the particular page for which each JavaScript action identified, a JavaScript action characteristics ID is calculated and stored. Responsive to a determination multiple instances of a same ID exist, collecting a list of JavaScript actions corresponding to each ID corresponding to a multiple JavaScript action and removing from memory JavaScript action entries for the multiple instances of the same ID. A neighbor influence is computed for a member of the list of JavaScript actions remaining and the JavaScript action ID calculated for the member of the list of JavaScript actions remaining is stored. Responsive to a determination there are no more multiple JavaScript actions, return all JavaScript action IDs stored.

  • Patent number: 10108594
    Abstract: Systems and methods described herein enable a residual error image to be added and rendered in an existing HTML canvas using native primitives. A current image and a residual error image containing pixel value differences between the current image and an updated image are received. A positive residual error image and a negative error image are generated from the residual error image. The positive residual error image is added to the current image to generate a partially updated image, and the partially updated image is xored to generate an inverse image. The negative residual error image is added to the inverse image to generate an updated inverse image, and xoring the inverse image to revert the inverse image to generate the updated image.
