  • Patent number: 9489422
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for searching the contents of a network system connected to data storage devices from a remote terminal over a wired or wireless link. This system formulates search requests, and dispatches the requests, A variety of search engines and services are invoked to find the requested contents. A summary is formed in a format brief enough for transmission over a wireless link. The search summary information is indexed the remote terminal to subsequently request all or part of a document referenced in the search summary, allows formation of requests of all or part of a referenced document in its original form or in a form transcoded appropriately for transmission over a wireless link and presented on the remote terminal.

  • Patent number: 7912896
    Abstract: A data access, replication or communications system is distributed across a terminal-side executable running on a terminal and a server-side executable. Together the terminal-side executable and the server-side executable form a client to a larger server and collaborate by sending messages using a message queuing system over a network. The larger server can be, for example, a mail server. Splitting the client into a terminal-side executable and a server-side executable allows a terminal, such as mobile device with limited processing capacity, power, and connectivity, to enjoy the functionality of full-featured client access to a server environment using minimum resources on the mobile device by distributing some of the functionality normally associated with the client onto the server side executable, which is not so resource constrained.

  • Publication number: 20070130255
    Abstract: The present invention envisages a data access, replication or communications system comprising a software application that is distributed across a terminal-side component running on a terminal and a server-side component; in which the terminal-side component and the server-side component (i) together constitute a client to a server and (ii) collaborate by sending messages using a message queuing system over a network Hence, we split (i.e. distribute) the functionality of an application that serves as the client in a client-server configuration into component parts that run on two or more physical devices that commuunicate with each other over a network connection using a message queuing system, such as message oriented middleware. The component parts collectively act as a client in a larger client-server arrangement, with the server being, for example, a mail server. We call this a ‘Distributed Client’ model.
