  • Publication number: 20190138283
    Abstract: Methods, devices and systems for providing a user interface in an on-demand software service environment are described. Some implementations involve receiving an indication of a component definition to instantiate. The component definition may be a portion of a component definition data structure. Such implementations may also involve instantiating the provided component, instantiating all remaining attributes of the component definition data structure to produce a component instance data structure and transmitting an intermediate representation of the indicated component to a client device. The intermediate representation may comprise a version of the component instance data structure. The intermediate representation may allow the client device to create an instance of the component in memory.

  • Patent number: 8914438
    Abstract: Methods, devices and systems for providing a user interface in an on-demand software service environment are described. Some implementations involve receiving a component request from a first client device, locating class-level definition source code for a component definition corresponding to the component request, identifying the component definition within the source code, determining a language of the component definition and selecting a parser according to the language of the component definition. Such implementations may also involve parsing the source code to create the component definition and transmitting an intermediate representation of the requested component to the client device. The intermediate representation may allow the client device to create an instance of the requested component.

  • Publication number: 20110289425
    Abstract: Methods, devices and systems for providing a user interface in an on-demand software service environment are described. Some implementations involve displaying a rendered page, detecting the firing of an event in the rendered page and determining an event type for the event. The implementations may also involve ascertaining whether an action associated with the event is implemented in a server-side language or a client-side language, locating handlers for the event according to the event type and performing a handler execution process. These implementations may also involve executing a component re-rendering process to create a re-rendered page and displaying the re-rendered page. The component re-rendering process may be based, at least in part, on output from the handler execution process.

  • Publication number: 20110289141
    Abstract: Methods, devices and systems for providing a user interface in an on-demand software service environment are described. Some implementations involve sending a request from a first apparatus to a second apparatus and receiving a response from the second apparatus. The response may include serialized instantiated component definitions, serialized data for the instantiated component definitions and serialized metadata for the instantiated component definitions. Such implementations may involve deserializing the response to create a metadata structure, traversing the metadata structure to create an instance data structure, traversing the instance data structure to render or re-render a page and displaying the page on a display of the first apparatus.

  • Publication number: 20110289140
    Abstract: Methods, devices and systems for providing a user interface in an on-demand software service environment are described. Some implementations involve receiving a component request from a first client device and building or retrieving component definitions corresponding to the component request. The implementations may also involve instantiating the component definitions and obtaining data and metadata for the component instances. Such implementations may also involve serializing the component definitions, component instances, the data and the metadata, and returning a response to the first client device. The response may include serialized instantiated component definitions, serialized data for the instantiated component definitions and serialized metadata for the instantiated component definitions.
