  • Patent number: 7613830
    Abstract: The present invention extends to methods, systems, and computer program products for reliably and securely transferring queued application messages. Application messages are (e.g.,. binary or text) encoded and then encapsulated in transfer messages, enqueue messages, and dequeue responses such that composable protocol elements used in application messages can be reused in the transfer messages, enqueue messages, and dequeue responses. Transfer message headers are encoded and then encapsulated along with encoded application messages such that composable protocol elements used in transfer headers and application messages can be reused in the store and forward messages. Application messages, transfer messages, enqueue messages, dequeue responses, and store and forward messages can all be configured in accordance with the same messaging protocol, such as, for example, Simple Object Access Protocol.

  • Patent number: 7512957
    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.

  • Patent number: 5724588
    Abstract: A computer method and system for passing a pointer to an interface from a server process to a client process. In a preferred embodiment, the server process instantiates an object that has multiple interfaces. The server process identifies an interface to pass to the client process and creates a stub object for receiving a request to invoke a function member of the interface and for invoking the requested function member upon receiving the request. The server process then sends an identifier of the stub to the client process. When the client process receives the identifier of the stub, it instantiates a proxy object for receiving requests to invoke a function member of the interface and for sending the request to the identified stub. The client process can then invoke the function members of the interface by invoking function members of the proxy object. The proxy object sends a request to the identified stub. The identified stub then invokes the corresponding function member of the interface.
