  • Patent number: 11386112
    Abstract: Techniques for rendering shared data include receiving, from a data store by a computing device, data indicative of a persistent data object. The persistent data object is associated with a class indicative of a data type for information contained in the persistent data object. The persistent data object is operable to be inserted in a file generated by an application executing on the computing device. The visualization logic associated with the class may be received by the computing device. The information in the persistent data object is rendered using the selected method of visualization, and other information in the document is rendered using native rendering capabilities of the application.

  • Patent number: 11115486
    Abstract: Techniques for managing data include receiving, at a data store, a persistent data object generated by a source application, the object configured to be compatible with a plurality of applications and document types. The object is associated with a unique identifier. In response to a request for the object, the object is accessed based on its unique identifier and sent to a computing device executing a destination application. The object is incorporated by and is compatible with a destination document being edited by the destination application. An update to the object is received that is generated by a user application editing a user document. In response to receiving an indication that the object has been inserted in the destination document, the update is sent by the data store to the destination computing device and is usable to update the object as incorporated in the destination document.

  • Patent number: 9971827
    Abstract: Technologies are described herein for integrating external data from an external system into a client system. A subscription filed is selected. The subscription filed may include a read method and a query method. The read method may define fields of a client cache operating on the client system. The query method may be executed to retrieve, from the external system, field values corresponding to at least a subset of the fields. Upon executing the query method, the read method may also be executed to retrieve, from the external system, additional field values corresponding to a remaining subset of the fields that were not retrieved by executing the query method. The client cache is populated with the field values and the additional field values according to the fields.

  • Patent number: 9917922
    Abstract: An interface mechanism is provided for developers to bundle together a set of extensions (or add-ins) to a productivity suite allowing end users and system administrators to manage their lifecycle in a unified way. Aspects such as discovery, acquisition, authorization deployment, management, updates, and similar ones may be addressed for the bundle as opposed to each of the different extensions (for example extensions for different versions of the same application such as desktop version, web application version, mobile version, etc.). Bundles may also provide a means to match specific functional sets or commercial offerings to specific user or customer profiles.

  • Patent number: 9710247
    Abstract: A user's (client) computer sends a request for a listing of applications which can be downloaded from a server in an electronic marketplace and a list of functions provided by a host program. A description of an application, such as in an application manifest, provides a list of required functions and, preferably, a list of optional functions for a software application. The server sends a list of applications supported by those functions. Those supported applications are displayed to the user as being available for downloading. The user selects the desired application and the user's computer requests, and the server provides, a download of that application. The downloaded application will then operate on the user's computer using the required functions provided by the host programs, and may use any optional functions provided by the host programs.

  • Publication number: 20160313958
    Abstract: An abstraction for one or more commands associated with a client application may be received upon deployment of a host application. The abstraction may be an extension with a same package and code such that the extension is enabled across a variety of platforms, host applications, and devices. For example, the extension may be displayed through a user interface of the host application based on definitions contained within the abstraction such that the extension is compatible with a platform and device on which the host application is deployed. The commands may be translated into graphical control elements, and displayed in conjunction with the extension based on the definitions. Upon invocation of one or more of the commands, an action may be performed based on the definitions enabling the client application to interact with content being created, edited, and/or viewed in the host application in an appropriate context.

  • Patent number: 9313269
    Abstract: Architecture that maintains the user experience as close as possible to the user experience when dealing with the usual/regular forms and data provided in an office application when dealing with hybrid forms and hybrid data. Synchronization of the hybrid data to single-master and multi-masters systems is accomplished when the associated hybrid client goes offline, changes are made to the hybrid data, and then the client comes back online. For example, where the single-master system is a line-of-business (LOB) server system and the multi-master system is an officer server that employs collaboration capability, the architecture allows office users to access, manipulate, and share LOB entity information using collaborative means, while at the same time, ensuring data and business process consistency for the LOB entity in the LOB system.

  • Patent number: 9292360
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies are described herein for cross-platform application programming interfaces for applications. In accordance with the concepts and technologies disclosed herein, the cross-platform APIs support interoperability and extensibility with various application programs using a single language and/or set of APIs. Extensions authored for a particular application program may be used with other application programs that expose the same or a similar set of APIs, even if other object models or APIs associated with the application programs differ from one another. Thus, the APIs support cross-platform, cross-device, and cross-version compatibility of extensions.

  • Patent number: 9239817
    Abstract: A web extension is managed through a manifest file. An application managing the web extension receives attributes of the extension from a developer or metadata of the extension. A pointer to the web extension is inserted into the attributes. The pointer can be used as a link to activate the web extension. The attributes are stored in a manifest file formatted in extensible markup language (XML). The functionality of the web extension is managed based on the manifest file.

  • Patent number: 9235803
    Abstract: A web extension and content are linked contextually. A user interaction with the content launches a process to match a regular expression rule from the web extension to a portion of the content. An entity matching the regular expression rule is recorded and transmitted back to the web extension. Matched entity is integrated into the rule. The integrated rule is displayed in a web extension pane. The integrated rule and the entity are highlighted within the web extension pane and the content pane, respectively. The highlighted entity and the highlighted rule illustrate a contextual link between the web extension and the content.

  • Patent number: 9053465
    Abstract: Techniques to manage event notifications are described. An apparatus may comprise a server having an event notification component. The event notification component may have an event agent component to receive a message indicating a change event for line of business (LOB) data, and convert the change event to a defined LOB entity event. The event notification component may have a notification service component to generate a LOB event message for the entity event. The event notification component may have an event database to store the event message in a user event queue. Other embodiments are described and claimed.
