  • Patent number: 10210260
    Abstract: A client device presents a resource to a user. In order to present the resource, the client device generates and renders one or more presentation strings. The client device generates a presentation string by identifying a template module that corresponds to an content resource object in a dataset downloaded by the client device. The client device then performs a template execution operation on the content resource object. The template module corresponding to the content resource object specifies the template execution operation.

  • Patent number: 8645406
    Abstract: A fallback query mechanism that serves as a way to recover from query conditions (or criteria) that break due to excessively large result sets relative to a preset threshold. The fallback query mechanism detects when a query has failed to execute because the query requested more items from the database (or list) than allowed by the threshold, rewrites the query to examine no more than the threshold number of most recently created items that match one of the indexed filter criteria specified in a view, and then applies one or more of the other filter criteria. The mechanism then reruns the query and displays the results to the user.

  • Publication number: 20120102386
    Abstract: A server system enables users to configure user interfaces. A generic presentation string is stored at a data storage system. The generic presentation string is renderable to present an unfilled template that may include one or more slots. A template module is generated from the generic presentation string. The generic presentation string specifies a transformation operation. A template execution operation generates presentation strings renderable to present filled templates. In the filled templates, data based on objects belonging to a given type replace the slots of the unfilled template.
