  • Publication number: 20050134718
    Abstract: A cellular phone having a plurality of cameras and being able to switch display of a picture without interrupting display for the camera is provided. Processes executed by a control unit of the cellular phone include the steps of measuring a holddown time when holddown of a button is detected; sending the video signal sent from the camera corresponding to a numeric button to a main monitor when a first function button is held down for a holddown time shorter than a predetermined time and the numeric button is held down; and sending the video signal sent from the camera set as a next source to the main monitor when the numeric button is not held down. The processes further includes the step of sending the video signal sent from a main camera to main monitor when the holddown time is longer than the predetermined time.

  • Publication number: 20050065993
    Abstract: The device creates a job network configuration file that prescribes an execution procedure of a job in an information processing apparatus. This device comprises a template input unit, a definition file input unit, a setting data input unit and a creation processing unit. The template input unit can receive a template file including an undefined variable, the template file being prepared in connection with the job network configuration file. The definition file input unit can receive a definition file that establishes an association between the variable used in the template file and setting data that is input by an user in connection with a setting of the job network configuration file. The setting data input unit can receive input of the setting data from the user. The creation processing unit can create the job network configuration file in accordance with the definition file and the template file based on the setting data.

  • Publication number: 20040049544
    Abstract: A computer has a table for managing a relationship between classes under which data to be processed unique to each of at least one first application program is classified according to a function/attribute thereof, and processes assigned to each class and each capable of being executed by a second application program. The table manages a relationship between said process and said second application program that executes said process. An in-context launching managing method comprises: when one of said data is selected, specifying the class to which said selected data belongs; extracting at least one process that is assigned to said specified class, creating a process list including the extracted process, and displaying said created process list; when one of said process is selected from said process list, accepting said selected process; and specifying the second application program related to said accepted process, and starting said specified second application program.

  • Publication number: 20030200109
    Abstract: In the prior art, a user bore a heavy burden on operating together different products having the same functions. A user 102 calls a job net managing function 105 via GUI/CLI 103, and defines a job net 106. A job net execution controlling function 109 interrupts a definition of the job net 106, and sequentially executes the defined jobs. The defined jobs call not real commands directly, but switchers 110 to 114 that define regularized interfaces. The switchers, referring to environment variables 101, select adaptors 115 and 116 properly to call real commands 117 and 118 corresponding thereto.
