  • Patent number: 9384298
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media for previewing search results determined in response to search queries input into a browser toolbar search box are provided. Descriptors of search results determined to match the input search query are presented in a search results window that overlays a first portion of the browser web page. Upon receiving an indication that the user desires to view one of the presented search results, a preview of a web page associated with the indicated search result is presented overlaying a second portion of the browser page. If the user determines from the preview that the indicated search result does not provide the desired information, s/he may move the mouse pointer to a different search result. In response, a web page associated with the second indicated search result is presented overlaying the second portion of the browser page for the user to preview.

  • Patent number: 9286043
    Abstract: A method for optimization of a software build includes collecting first data representative of inputs for a build process obtained by a set of data accessing operations implemented during a first execution of the build process, the set including a file accessing operation and a non-file accessing operation. A redirection routine embedded within the build process captures the inputs. The first data is compared with second data representative of the inputs obtained in connection with a second execution of the build process. If the first and second data do not match, the second data is recorded in a data store and output data generated by the second execution of the build process is stored. If the first and second data match, output data generated by the first execution of the build process is used as an output for the second execution of the build process.

  • Patent number: 9137111
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media for automatically validating and configuring an inventory of hardware to interact seamlessly with a cloud-computing fabric of a data center are provided. Initially, devices internal to the hardware inventory are located by sending and receiving messages via out-of-band communication channels and network communication channels, respectively. Locating the internal devices involves establishing communication from a user device to the hardware inventory and selecting at least one of the internal devices for conducting a discovery process thereon. The discovery process involves receiving a first network identifier via the out-of-band communication channel and receiving a second network identifier via the network communication channel. When the first and second network identifiers match, the interconnection of the selected device is validated. Otherwise, one or more remedial measures are initiated with respect to the selected device.

  • Publication number: 20140282421
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for validation of a software product via a distributed computing infrastructure includes receiving configuration data for a plurality of validation tasks of the validation, receiving code data representative of the software product, defining a validation pipeline to implement the plurality of validation tasks based on the configuration data, and initiating execution of the plurality of validation tasks on a plurality of virtual machines of the distributed computing infrastructure. Initiating the execution includes sending the code data and data indicative of the defined validation pipeline to configure each virtual machine in accordance with the code data and the defined validation pipeline.
