  • Patent number: 7991752
    Abstract: Provided are techniques for savepoint processing. One of a savepoint statement, a rollback to savepoint statement, and a release savepoint statement is received. It is determined whether to propagate the received one of the savepoint statement, the rollback to savepoint statement, and the release savepoint statement to a data source based on an asymmetrical model in which a nested level of savepoints on a federated server side is capable of being greater than a nested level of savepoints on a data source side and wherein a two-tiered data structure is used to preserve savepoint information in the asymmetrical model. In response to determining that propagation is to occur, the one of the savepoint statement, the rollback to savepoint statement, and the release savepoint statement is propagated to the data source.

  • Patent number: 6991868
    Abstract: In a fuel cell assembly comprising a plurality of cell each including an electrolyte layer (2), a pair of diffusion electrode layers (3, 4) interposing the electrolyte layer between them, and a pair of flow distribution plates (5) for defining passages (11) for fuel and oxidant fluids that contact the diffusion electrode layers, the fuel cells are arranged on a common plane. Therefore, the vertical dimension of the fuel cell assembly can be minimized, and a fuel cell assembly of favorable electric properties can be achieved. Each flow distribution plate is typically formed with communication passages for communicating fluid passages defined on each side of the electrolyte layer at a prescribed pattern. The communication passages and through holes communicate the fluid passages in such a manner that adjacent fuels cells have opposite polarities.
