  • Patent number: 10445336
    Abstract: An apparatus collects record data from a plurality of information sources. When a process to be performed on the collected record data is determined, with reference to definition information on the process, to be able to generate result data from a single piece of the record data, the apparatus starts the process on the collected record data without waiting for an arrival of all the record data as a collection target from the plurality of information sources. When pieces of the record data are required to be referenced in order for the process to generate the result data and the pieces of the record data includes an uncollected piece of the record data, the apparatus starts the process in response to completion of collecting all the record data as the collection target from the plurality of information sources.

  • Publication number: 20150278240
    Abstract: A data processing apparatus to transmit data including a plurality of items to an information processing apparatus and to cause the information processing apparatus to process the data, the data processing apparatus including a processor, and memory configured to store a program to instruct the processor to perform: acquiring processing-related information including a designation of a processing target item from the information processing apparatus, extracting, from the data to be transmitted, an item value associated with an item to which the information processing apparatus refers when the information processing apparatus processes the data to be transmitted based on the processing-related information, generating compressed data by compressing the data to be transmitted, generating attached information including the extracted item value and to attach the attached information to the compressed data, and transmitting the compressed data attached with the attached information to the information processing appa

  • Patent number: 8996825
    Abstract: A judgment apparatus includes a processor that executes a procedure, the procedure including obtaining a plurality of pieces of data having a certain relationship with a specific number or more of pieces of data included in a first data group, in the case that a piece of data included in a second data group different from the first data group does not have the certain relationship with the specific number or more of pieces of data included in the second data group, judging whether the piece of data has the certain relationship with the specific number or more of pieces of data included in the obtained plurality of pieces of data, and storing the piece of data in a storage device in the case that the piece of data is judged to have the given relationship with the specific number or more pieces of data.

  • Patent number: 8775873
    Abstract: In a data processing apparatus, when an instruction for starting validation is provided, or when definition information is updated, data input from a data source is collected, and a process for narrowing down of the collected data is executed. In the data narrowing process, by extracting records and items as process targets according to the definition information that defines the operation of the apparatus, the number of data items used for validation is reduced. Then, the operation is validated using the narrowed data. In the operation validation process, a virtual transfer destination of output of data is provided within the apparatus, and the data is output to the virtual transfer destination, for comparison with the output data, whereby the validation of the operation is performed.

  • Publication number: 20020026481
    Abstract: An electronic mail system that is used to send electronic mail with an attached file reliably regardless of the status of mail servers on a transmission path. In this electronic mail system, if an attached file is added to electronic mail sent from a mail client, being a sender, an attached file separating section separates the attached file from the electronic mail. An attached file transferring section transfers the attached file separated from the electronic mail by the attached file separating section to an FTP server. A store location information adding section adds store location information indicating a location where the attached file transferred by the attached file transferring section is stored to the electronic mail. The electronic mail to which the store location information has been added is sent to a receiver mail server.
