  • Patent number: 10198279
    Abstract: A system performs thread synchronization across layers of code that implement an application, including native code, system code, and code in a virtual machine (“VM”). The system makes a call by the native code to the system code; and sends a message by the system code to the code in the VM. The system then sends a first response by the code in the VM to the system code; and sends a second response by the system code to the native code, where each one of the native code, the system code, and the code in the VM implements wait and notify functionality for communication with other codes that implement the application.

  • Patent number: 8015256
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for coordinating concurrent processing of messages communicated over a network. The messages include a pair of related messages having a common first unique identifier and an unrelated message having a second unique identifier different from the first unique identifier. A sequencer module determines which of the plurality of messages are the pair of related messages and which of the plurality of messages are the unrelated message. The sequencer module identifies a sequence order for the pair of related messages by determining a first position in the sequence order for a first message of the pair of related messages and a second position in the sequence order for a second message of the pair of related messages. The sequencer module inhibits the progression of processing of the second message until the first message is no longer pending while facilitating concurrent processing of the unrelated message.

  • Publication number: 20050278236
    Abstract: Methods and systems consistent with the present invention provide for planning deals. A deal master module provides a user interface for users to create a record with information reflecting characteristics of a first deal for inclusion in a deal hierarchy, and create a record with information reflecting characteristics of a second deal for inclusion in the deal hierarchy. The deal master module may form the deal hierarchy using the records by assigning a hierarchical relationship between the records for the first deal and the second deal. One of the deals is considered a top-level deal in the hierarchical relationship, and the other one of the deals is considered a sub-deal in the hierarchical relationship. The deal master module may thereafter make deal information available to a user to develop a potential trade promotion to promote one or more products or services, the deal information being derived from the deal hierarchy.
