  • Patent number: 8135794
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer program products that provide for a runtime messaging infrastructure, which abstracts send and receive operations for exchanging messages with partner endpoint. The messaging infrastructure improves availability and scalability of a message application by improving on the availability and scalability of the underlying message transports. In particular, availability and scalability are improved by linking the message application at runtime with any number of the message transports, without the message application specifying a transport at development time. The message infrastructure receives instructions from the message application specifying end-to-end delivery assurances. The infrastructure uses transports in order to fulfill the specified delivery assurance, and creates a link between the message application and transports for use in exchanging messages.

  • Patent number: 7921216
    Abstract: The present invention provides for an automated, user friendly way of constructing and using a binding object. A developer is presented with and selects binding elements that will ultimately be used to create a runtime communication channel for transporting a message between a client and service endpoint. After receiving the user input, metadata, a channel factory and listener factory are created. The metadata describes binding elements and provides an abstract representation of a protocol stack that implements communication aspects at runtime. The channel factory is configured to use the collection of metadata at runtime to generate the runtime communication channel. Further, the listener factory is configured to accept the runtime communication channel for de-multiplexing the communication aspects in order to process the message at a service endpoint. The present invention also provides for groupings of binding elements and standardized binding objects organized based on industry need.

  • Patent number: 7899921
    Abstract: The present invention monitors the receipt of messages between two endpoints on established sequence session in accordance with a Reliable Messaging protocol for Web Services (RM-WS protocol). The messages received may be application or infrastructure messages (e.g., acknowledgement messages in accordance with the RM-WS protocol). Further, the present invention defines a time period known as the inactivity timeout, which is an upper limit to the time that may pass without receiving a message (either application or infrastructure) on the sequence session. Based on this inactivity timeout period, the present invention calculates time periods for sending idempotent infrastructure messages in accordance with the RM-WS protocol for verifying and maintaining connection liveliness.

  • Patent number: 7882236
    Abstract: The present invention provides for a channel model capable of generating a runtime communication channel with pluggable modular channel components. These channel components implement one of a set of standard interfaces that allow processing details of communication semantics between components to be represented in a polymorphic way. A message and corresponding communication semantics are recursively passed through the channel components using the standard interface, thereby abstracting other modules and components from specific implementation details of how the communication semantics are performed. The message may then be sent to the next appropriate module for further processing, or the processing may be completed at that particular component or module. Note also that the message can also be de-multiplexed on the service side in a similar fashion as that described above.
