  • Patent number: 9069459
    Abstract: Embodiments isolate gesture processing for improved user interactivity with content. A first thread detects user interaction with a document via a touch sensor associated with a computing device. A latency associated with a second thread is calculated. The calculated latency is compared to a threshold latency. Based on the comparison, the first thread determines whether to transfer processing of the detected user interaction from the first thread to the second thread. The detected user interaction is processed by the first thread or by the second thread based on the determination. In some embodiments, users are provided with smooth interactivity such as panning and scrolling when browsing web content with a browser executing on a mobile computing device.

  • Patent number: 7613830
    Abstract: The present invention extends to methods, systems, and computer program products for reliably and securely transferring queued application messages. Application messages are (e.g.,. binary or text) encoded and then encapsulated in transfer messages, enqueue messages, and dequeue responses such that composable protocol elements used in application messages can be reused in the transfer messages, enqueue messages, and dequeue responses. Transfer message headers are encoded and then encapsulated along with encoded application messages such that composable protocol elements used in transfer headers and application messages can be reused in the store and forward messages. Application messages, transfer messages, enqueue messages, dequeue responses, and store and forward messages can all be configured in accordance with the same messaging protocol, such as, for example, Simple Object Access Protocol.

  • Patent number: 7512957
    Abstract: A web services namespace pertains to an infrastructure for enabling creation of a wide variety of applications. The infrastructure provides a foundation for building message-based applications of various scale and complexity. The infrastructure or framework provides APIs for basic messaging, secure messaging, reliable messaging and transacted messaging. In some embodiments, the associated APIs are factored into a hierarchy of namespaces in a manner that balances utility, usability, extensibility and versionability.
