  • Patent number: 10691437
    Abstract: A computer implemented method of developing computer applications, the method comprising providing to multiple users access, over a network, to information on a data center, with a subgroup of the users having access to a sub-portion of the information that is different from the sub-portion accessible by the remaining tenants of the subgroup; and communicating wide the data center over the network employing a computer system associated with a user of the sub-group to establish application functionality with the sub-portion that may be accessed, over the network, by additional parties authorized by the user. Also disclosed is a machine-readable medium and a data center, both of which facilitate carrying-out the steps of the method.

  • Publication number: 20200159514
    Abstract: In accordance with embodiments, there are provided mechanisms and methods for creating, exporting, viewing and testing, and importing custom applications in a multitenant database environment. These mechanisms and methods can enable embodiments to provide a vehicle for sharing applications across organizational boundaries. The ability to share applications across organizational boundaries can enable tenants in a multi-tenant database system, for example, to easily and efficiently import and export, and thus share, applications with other tenants in the multi-tenant environment.

  • Patent number: 10558336
    Abstract: A sharing model enables users to easily and conveniently create and share standard and custom database objects, and applications, among users or groups of users. The sharing model includes systems and methods that allow users to conveniently create and customize tabs and tab sets that define relationships between custom objects and fields, standard objects and fields, and applications. A tab visually represents a user interface into an element of an application or into a database object. Selection of a tab provides a user access to the object or element of the application represented by the tab. A tab set is a group of related tabs that work as a unit to provide application functionality. New tabs and tab sets may be defined and tab set views may be customized so that an end user can easily and conveniently switch between the various objects and application elements represented by the displayed tabs and tab set views.

  • Publication number: 20190232582
    Abstract: In an example, a method of forming a composite material includes embedding a plurality of conductive-magnetic particles in a matrix material. The method also includes applying, using a magnetic device, a magnetic field to the plurality of conductive-magnetic particles in the matrix material to move the plurality of conductive-magnetic particles into an alignment in which a longitudinal axis of each conductive-magnetic particle is parallel to a direction of the magnetic field. The method further includes, while applying the magnetic field, curing the matrix material to a hardened state in which the alignment of the plurality of conductive-magnetic particles is fixed in the matrix material.

  • Publication number: 20170223010
    Abstract: A user accesses a remote session, the connection to which is managed by a connection broker, according to a single sign-on (SSO) process. The SSO process includes the user entering his or her credentials and being authenticated to the connection broker. In addition to user authentication, the SSO process includes connection broker authentication to confirm that the connection broker is trustworthy. When the connection broker is authenticated, the user credentials are transmitted to the connection broker in a secure manner and the connection broker forwards them onto a machine hosting the remote session so that the user can be logged into the remote session without entering his or her credentials again.
