  • Patent number: 9420069
    Abstract: A server can efficiently distribute images for a web page as groups of images. The server receives a request from a client for a group of images associated with a web page. The request encodes an image group identifier and a retrieving function. The server executes the retrieving function with the image group identifier to obtain the group of images. In response to the request, the group of images are transmitted over a number of data communication connections between the client and the server that are less than a number of images in the group of images.

  • Patent number: 7849468
    Abstract: Arrangements for enhancing browsing of messages in a message queue are disclosed. Embodiments include hardware and/or software for tracking records browsed by one or more agents. The agents can collect, process, and/or re-format data for an upperware application, a data warehouse, and/or similar systems. When the agent sets up communications with a queue, the agent may generate an attribute setting that instructs the middleware to track the last record browsed and/or the next record to browse. In response to setting the attribute, an agent identification (AID)) can be utilized to record the current record number, row number, queue identifier, and/or the like in a database. When the agent re-establishes communication with the middleware queue, the middleware can retrieve the current record number utilizing the AID.
