  • Patent number: 10095509
    Abstract: A framework for collaborative software development in an integrated development environment (IDE) is described herein. In accordance with one aspect, an application (App) identifier is retrieved by a collaboration component. The App identifier links to a version of the App for a collaborative activity. A message associated to the collaborative activity may be posted in a social network. The collaboration component may then generate a collaboration identifier for the version of the App, where the collaboration identifier encodes the App identifier, a message identifier that links to the message posted in the social network, and an IDE identifier that links to the collaboration component in the IDE.

  • Patent number: 9442745
    Abstract: Techniques are presented herein to enable the storing of a base application. A plurality of program modules are stored with the base application, where the plurality of program modules comprise a first module and second module. User instructions are received to form a configuration file containing interaction rules, wherein the interaction rules define, for the base application, how the first module interacts with the second module to form a configured first module. The base application is then executed along with the configured first module on behalf of a user.

  • Patent number: 9098858
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to a computer-implemented method for visualizing expressions for dynamic analytics. A graphical user interface control is generated for each of one or more variables of an expression. Each of the one or more variables is bound to the corresponding graphical interface control generated previously. Then, the generated graphical user interface control for each of the one or more variables of the expression is graphically output using a display device. A user may input an adjusted value of each of the one or more variables of the expression using the corresponding graphical user interface control.

  • Patent number: 8990727
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to a computer-implemented method for graphically displaying or presenting a fisheye-based view of a large data list on the limited content viewing area of a mobile device. At least a subset of data rows within the data list and graphical representations of a plurality of data fields of at least the subset of data rows are generated and graphically displayed using a graphical user interface of the mobile device. When a user selects a focus row from the displayed data rows, a fisheye-based view of the selected focus row is presented. The fisheye-based view and the graphical representations of the data fields provide the user with a focus-plus-context view of a large data list. Further, the graphical representations provide the user with meaningful information even when particular data items are too small to read specific values.

  • Patent number: 7537939
    Abstract: In the manufacture of semiconductors, it is often necessary to characterize the effect of line width and line width shape on yield. In an example embodiment, there is a method (200) for randomizing exposure conditions across a substrate. The method comprises generating a list of random numbers (210). A random number is mapped (220) to an exposure field, forming a list of random numbers and corresponding exposure fields. The list or random numbers and corresponding exposure fields is sorted (230) by random number. To each exposure field in the list sorted by random number, an exposure dose is assigned (240). The list is sorted is sorted by exposure field (250).
