  • Patent number: 7669118
    Abstract: Methods, systems and programs are disclosed for providing a page with a plurality of code portions. In accordance with one embodiment, a computer system is provided that includes a browser client and a page-generator server. The page-generator may provide an HTML-page with a plurality of Y-code portions in HTML by using a page description with X-code portions in XML. The generator may read a set of first data items from an interface and read the description that defines a table structure, references to the first data items, a set of second data items, and a presentation direction by which the first and second data items are to be consecutively presented by the browser. Further, the generator may provide the Y-code portions for the page by writing corresponding structure code to the page according to the table structure, by writing data code (a) corresponding to the first data items resolved from the references and (b) corresponding to the second data items, and by writing presentation direction code.

  • Publication number: 20060200763
    Abstract: Techniques are described for converting content within a document from a first format to a second format using an intermediate format. In one variation, a technique obtains layout data associated with content in a source document having a first format, sequentially converts portions of the content into an intermediate format based on the layout data, and exports the intermediate format content into a target document having a second format based on predetermined spatial layout restrictions.

  • Publication number: 20060195424
    Abstract: Techniques for generating a report of a plurality of business warehouse system queries are described. Such techniques may identify one or more row types for each query. Thereafter, a template may be defined for each row type within a query that defines a format and a pattern for the row type. The template may be applied to query data for each query according to the row type to generate a sub-report. The sub-reports may be combined to generate an aggregated reports. Related apparatus and computer program products are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20040133852
    Abstract: In a computer system (902, 901) with browser client (250, 902) and page-generator server (902), a generator provides a HTML-page (240) with a plurality of Y-code in HTML by using a page description with X-code in XML. The generator (230) reads a first data items from an interface (210) and reads (420) the description (220) that defines a table structure, references to the first data items, second data items, and a presentation direction by that first and second data items are to be consecutively presented by the browser. The generator (230) provides (430) the Y-code for the page (240) by writing (431) corresponding structure code (Y02, Y08) to the page (240) according to the table structure, by writing (432) data code (a) corresponding to the first data items resolved from the references and (b) corresponding to the second data items, and by writing (433) presentation direction code. Presentation directions are horizontal and vertical.
