  • Patent number: 10481885
    Abstract: A device and a method for synchronization of a robot program and a graphical program. The device includes a first converter adapted to convert a graphical program into a first sequence of tokens representing data for motions and actions contained in the graphical program. A second converter is adapted to convert the robot program into a second sequence of tokens representing data for motions and actions contained in the robot program. A modification command generator is adapted to compare the first and second sequences of tokens and based thereon generate modification commands. The first converter is adapted to receive the modification commands and edit the graphical program based on the modification commands so that the token sequence of the graphical program matches the token sequence of the robot program.

  • Patent number: 10481898
    Abstract: The application pertains to the automated deployment of software packages to an enterprise's testing, staging and production environments. It does this by detecting events with respect to the enterprise's code base and, upon detection of a change in a package, identifies the application(s) that include that package. For each such application, a workflow is provided defining a pipeline of environments in which a bundle of packages that make up that application are to be installed for testing, staging or production. A software package in which an event has occurred is installed in those environments on a stepwise basis per that workflow and the application is (re)built there for testing, etc. A status of the bundle of packages that make up an application in each of the respective environments is shown in a graphical user interface.

  • Patent number: 10467123
    Abstract: Embodiments provide a thread classification method that represents stack traces in a compact form using classification signatures. Some embodiments can receive a stack trace that includes a sequence of stack frames. Some embodiments may generate, based on the sequence of stack frames, a trace signature that represents the set. Some embodiments may receive one or more subsequent stack traces. For each of the one or more subsequent stack traces, some embodiments may determine whether a subsequent trace signature has been generated to represent the sequence of stack frames included within the subsequent stack trace. If not, some embodiments may generate, based on the trace signature and other subsequent trace signatures that were generated based on the trace signature, the subsequent trace signature to represent the subsequent sequence of stack frames.
