  • Patent number: 9754065
    Abstract: A method for designing a system on a target device utilizing programmable logic devices (PLDs) includes generating options for utilizing resources on the PLDs in response to user specified constraints. The options for utilizing the resources on the PLDs are refined independent of the user specified constraints.

  • Publication number: 20060179146
    Abstract: The present invention extends to mapping between object oriented and service oriented representations of a distributed application. A computer system accesses an annotated object oriented representation of a service, which is annotated with service description attributes mapping included objects to corresponding service oriented elements in a service oriented representation of the service. The computer system identifies a service description attribute that annotates an object of the annotated object oriented representation. The computer system maps the object to a corresponding service oriented element in accordance with service description information contained in the identified service description attribute. The computer system outputs a channel object configured to implements behaviors and data formats described in the service oriented representations. The computer system initiates a channel that is compatible with behaviors and data formats of the service.

  • Publication number: 20060179425
    Abstract: The present invention extends utilizing abstract descriptions to generate, exchange, and configure service and client runtimes. A computer system parses compiled code and potentially optional configuration information for implementing a service and converts the compiled code and any configuration information into an abstract service description. The abstract service description can then be converted into code document object model and service configuration information or exported as metadata. A corresponding service runtime can be initiated by calling a service initializer included in the abstract service description. The code document object model and configuration information and/or metadata can be transferred to another computer system. The other computer system can utilize the code document object model and configuration information and/or import the metadata to facilitate initialization of a compatible channel for communicating with the service runtime.

  • Publication number: 20060174016
    Abstract: The present invention provides for an automated, user friendly way of constructing and using a binding object. A developer is presenting 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-multiplex 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 binging objects organized based on industry need.

  • Publication number: 20060150200
    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.

  • Publication number: 20060047679
    Abstract: Serialization and deserialization using data contracts. The data contract specifies data types that are serialized and deserialized for data objects that are associated with the data contract. During serialization, the data contract associated with the data object is identified. Then, the data fields that correspond to those specified data field types are extracted from the data object and serialized into a serialization format. During deserialization, the serialization mechanism receives a serialized data structure having a particular serialization format. A data contract is then identified as being associated with the serialized data structure. After deserialization of the serialized data structure into abstract data, a corresponding data object is populated with data fields that correspond only with those data field types specified in the data contract. Accordingly, data abstraction is enabled while serializing and deserializing.

  • Publication number: 20050071849
    Abstract: An object-based event communications system supplies an event distribution object having an outgoing-from-publisher event interface and associated with unique identifiers defined for a publisher that is programmed to fire events by calling a method on the event distribution object's outgoing-from-publisher event interface. The event communications system stores subscriptions of subscriber objects to methods of the outgoing-from-publisher event interface. On receiving a call from a publisher to its outgoing-from-publisher interface methods, the event distribution object multi-casts calls to counterpart methods of subscriber objects that have stored subscriptions to the respective outgoing-from-publisher interface methods.
