  • Publication number: 20090172132
    Abstract: The present invention is related to a computer system that provides a web page to a requestor over a network. Aspects of the present invention include receiving by the computer system a request to access a web page and in response, determining whether a descriptor for the requested web page is in a session memory. If the descriptor is not in the session memory, it is retrieved from a database and the stored in the session memory. From there, the descriptor is used to determine whether the web page should be retrieved and returned to the requestor. By storing the descriptor in session memory, additional accesses to the database can be avoided when the descriptor is used for subsequent tasks.

  • Publication number: 20050229243
    Abstract: A method and system for providing a computer running a Web browser HTTP access to a peer server located behind a firewall in a peer-to-peer network is described. The method and system first include providing the peer-to-peer network with a proxy server. The peer server then registers an outbound socket connection with the proxy server. In response to the proxy server receiving an HTTP request to access the peer server from the web browser, the HTTP request is translated into a request packet and the request packet is sent to the peer server. In response to the peer server receiving the request packet, the peer server translates the request packet back into the HTTP request and then responds to the request, thereby enabling generic web traffic to flow.
