  • Patent number: 7929523
    Abstract: A system, method and computer readable medium for mediating communication between a mobile device and a data source over a network is described. The system includes an asynchronous message receiver that is configured to receive an asynchronous request message from the device. The asynchronous request message includes an identifier field for identifying the asynchronous request message and a message field. The system also includes a synchronous message transceiver communicatively coupled to the asynchronous message receiver and configured to synchronously communicate with the data source by sending a synchronous request message to the data source and receiving a synchronous response message from the data source in return. The synchronous request message includes the message field of the asynchronous request message. A rules processor also forms part of the system, and is communicatively coupled to the synchronous message transceiver.

  • Patent number: 7894431
    Abstract: Described herein are a system, method, and computer readable medium for correlating asynchronous communication messages between a mobile communication device and a data source over a network. The mobile communication device executes an application to provide interaction with the data source based on the content of the communication messages. The system includes a message set and a message manager. The message set is configured to correlate an asynchronous request message of the communication messages with a corresponding asynchronous response message of the communication messages. The asynchronous request message has a first correlation identifier when transmitted and the asynchronous response message has a second correlation identifier when received; the first and second correlation identifiers form part of the message set and specify a mapping that correlates a data element of the asynchronous request message and a data element of the asynchronous response message, respectively, with a data instance.

  • Publication number: 20100313193
    Abstract: Current applications, in particular for resource constrained terminals, may only require access to an updated version of an application, but updates of current applications must typically be downloaded in their entirety. Further, multiple versions of the same application typically cannot be stored on the device, as resources can be limited. Contrary to current application management systems, there is provided systems and methods of modifying an application program for provisioning in a runtime environment of a terminal, the application including a plurality of uniquely addressable logical modules having respective executable methods, where the modules are linked by a set of execution pathways. One such method comprises the steps of obtaining a migration instruction set for coordinating the modification of the application and executing the migration instruction set for modifying a first execution pathway of the execution pathways to create a modified application.

  • Patent number: 7743385
    Abstract: System and method for data simplification in wireless communications are enabled by an application developer toolkit used to convert complex service messages to a simplified data structure for storing information associated with a remote service that utilizes complex data structures for conveying the information to devices that access the remote service. The application developer toolkit also outputs maps for converting the complex service messages to simplified wireless messages in a format of the simplified data structure, and maps simplified wireless messages to complex service messages. A proxy located in a communications path between the wireless device and the remote service uses the maps to convert complex service messages to simplified service messages, and vice versa.

  • Publication number: 20100142406
    Abstract: It is desirable to drive down the complexity involved in developing the wireless application by reducing the need to do any explicit coding, as well as reducing device resources utilized by the application when provisioned. Having an intelligent wireless device runtime environment (Device Runtime) that provides a set of basic services to manage the wireless application as a series if application components, and their interactions, can simplify the development effort and reduce resource allocation. The wireless application is described as a set of components. The data domain for this category of applications is defined using atomic data components. The communication between the device and a server is defined using atomic message components. Both message and data components are described in metadata using a structured definition language such as XML. The relationships between the message and data components are embedded in the XML definitions in the form of message/data mappings.
