  • Publication number: 20060174011
    Abstract: Preserving session state correlation in a distributed computing environment in which a service module instance receives messages from a general input buffer. The general input buffer is not accessed by a service module instance one the service module instance is determined to be recycled. After the service module instance receives a session initiation message through the general input buffer, a session-oriented input buffer is associated with the service module instance. Any subsequent session messages are then received by the service module via the session-oriented input buffer. Even if the service module instance was determined to be recycled mid-session, the service module instance would still operate to process all of the remaining session messages from the session input buffer, thereby preserving session continuity.

  • Publication number: 20060150200
    Abstract: A web services namespace pertains to an infrastructure for enabling creation of a wide variety of applications. The infrastructure provides a foundation for building message-based applications of various scale and complexity. The infrastructure or framework provides APIs for basic messaging, secure messaging, reliable messaging and transacted messaging. In some embodiments, the associated APIs are factored into a hierarchy of namespaces in a manner that balances utility, usability, extensibility and versionability.

  • Publication number: 20060129690
    Abstract: Example embodiments provide for a binding mechanism between RM protocols and request-response transport protocols (e.g., HTTP) in a one-way message exchange pattern. The present invention leverages existing network characteristics of request-response transport protocols without reconfiguration or deployment of new infrastructure services. A request-response transport model is asymmetrical in nature and provides two data-flows; a request flow and a reply flow. When an initiator is not addressable and/or when communication requires a request-response transport, the present invention allows infrastructure and application messages to be sent on the request flow, while acknowledgments and other infrastructure messages may be sent back across the reply flow of the transport.
