  • Patent number: 10482022
    Abstract: Methods and systems are presented for custom caching. Application threads define caches. The caches may be accessed through multiple index keys, which are mapped to multiple application thread-defined keys. Methods provide for the each index key and each application thread-defined key to be symmetrical. The index keys are used for loading data from one or more data sources into the cache stores on behalf of the application threads. Application threads access the data from the cache store by providing references to the caches and the application-supplied keys. Some data associated with some caches may be shared from the cache store by multiple application threads. Additionally, some caches are exclusively accessed by specific application threads.

  • Publication number: 20190342398
    Abstract: A system automatically maintains a plurality of client connections associated with a plurality of clients, the plurality of client connections including active and idle connections. A first server receives a request from a client of the plurality of clients to access a second server of a plurality of second servers communicatively coupled to the first server, the plurality of second servers having varying communication protocols. The first server then identifies a first communication protocol associated with the second server and activating a link between the first server and the second server using the first communication protocol.

  • Patent number: 9448944
    Abstract: A system to automatically generate query language in software is described. The system receives a request for data that is persistently stored in a database. The system selects a predefined query template from a number of query templates based on the request. The system utilizes the query template to receive content from at least one different source, the first source being a prototype data object. The system generates a query statement based on the query template that includes the content. Finally the system queries the database using the query statement to retrieve the requested data.

  • Patent number: 8898147
    Abstract: There are provided systems and methods to respond to a request for data. The system receives a request to search for the data based on a criterion and to populate data objects with the data. The request is further used to identify columns that determine data sources to query. The system performs a search of a logical table based on the criterion to identify a plurality of rows in the logical table. The system further generates a first plurality of tuples based on the plurality of rows to identify a first plurality of physical tables that are mapped to the logical table. The first plurality of tuples includes a first tuple and a second tuple. The system further queries the data sources for the data to generate results by using the first plurality of tuples. The queries of the data sources are partially successful.

  • Patent number: 8515949
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for a transparent application of multiple queries across multiple data sources. The system may receive a request to search for data. The system may perform a search of a logical table based on a criterion to identify a plurality of rows in the logical table. The system may generate fetch levels that include a first and second plurality of tuples based on the plurality of rows. Each fetch level may include a plurality of tuples that identify servers and physical tables that may store the data. The system may further query at least two data sources for the data based on the first plurality of tuples and communicate the data.
