  • Patent number: 9866638
    Abstract: Mechanisms for allowing allow multi-session capability and session-return enabling stateful web applications include providing a start URL of a requested portal page with an “External Session ID” (ESID). The ESID is an argument that is different between the two instances of the application (on the same page), and leads to different/independent sessions in the server. When a user returns to the same page, the ESIDs are passed again with the individual application requests, and the server can then logically reconnect to the proper session and allow the user to continue. The ESID can be used to return to an application after the user has previously left to go to another application and then desires to come back, or even when the user closed the browser and restarts the application later.

  • Patent number: 8266123
    Abstract: Navigating from an alert related to a state of a data object to a source of the alert includes displaying alerts in a portal environment. The portal environment has an analytical portal application associated with an analytical data store and a transaction portal application associated with a transaction data store. One of the alerts includes a transaction alert that is associated with a data object in the transaction data and another of the alerts includes an analytical alert that is associated with a data object. An indication of a transaction alert or an analytical alert is received from a user. When the indication is an indication of an analytical alert, navigation occurs to the analytical portal application. When the indication is an indication of the transaction alert, navigation occurs to the transaction portal application.

  • Patent number: 8117529
    Abstract: The object based navigation is an intelligent user interface that uses a source object to determine which target information is to be presented to the user. This is done by associating an object to one or more operations, so that selection of a given source object would result in a predefined operation to be activated. The role of the user may also affect the predefined operation that is activated. If multiple operations are associated with a given source object, these operations may be prioritized, so that the one with the highest priority is performed as a default operation.

  • Patent number: 7941544
    Abstract: A communication manager for web-based applications receives indications of application time outs via a callback mechanism. During session initiation, the communication manager provides a termination address to an application along with a session ID. If the session times out due to inactivity, the application may signal the communication manager that the session ID is invalid by sending a message to the termination address. Alternatively, when a communication manager establishes communication sessions for several applications with a common external terminal, the communication manager may receive messages identifying terminal activity at one of the applications and may signal to the other applications to keep their sessions active.

  • Patent number: 7783714
    Abstract: Methods and systems consistent with the invention manage messages transported between a first computer system and a second computer system. For instance, in one embodiment, According to another exemplary embodiment, a method obtains a business object identifier that identifies a business object associated with a first message to be transported over a network from the first computer system to the second computer system. The method may then generate a transport identifier associated with the transported message. The method may then route the first message the second computer system, such that the routing generates a second message that is transported to the second computer system. The method then obtains the second message transported to the second computer system. Finally, the method creates a data structure in memory including the transport identifier, the business object identifier, and the second message.

  • Patent number: 7647558
    Abstract: A graphical user interface (GUI) for presenting representations of selected objects in a computer system. The GUI presents an object selected from a collection of objects using a selected visual representation selected from at least first and second visual representations to be initiated using different initiation techniques. A first input control causes the selected object to be presented using another visual representation instead of the selected visual representation. A second input control causes another object to be presented instead of the selected object using any visual configuration that is currently used in presenting the selected object. The first and second input controls may be located in an object header area that remains essentially unchanged when changing between the at least first and second visual representations.
