  • Patent number: 8147586
    Abstract: Method for producing molybdenum metal powder. The invention includes introducing a supply of ammonium molybdate precursor material into a furnace in a first direction and introducing a reducing gas into a cooling zone in a second direction opposite to the first direction. The ammonium molybdate precursor material is heated at an initial temperature in the presence of the reducing gas to produce an intermediate product that is heated at a final temperature in the presence of the reducing gas, thereby creating the molybdenum metal powder comprising particles having a surface area to mass ratio of between about 1 m2/g and about 4 m2/g, as determined by BET analysis, and a flowability of between about 29 s/50 g and 86 s/50 g as determined by a Hall Flowmeter. The molybdenum metal powder is moved through the cooling zone.

  • Patent number: 7729689
    Abstract: A mobile wireless device, such as a mobile wireless phone, is adapted based on a user's current abstracted contextual situation, where the context of a user is determined using devices enabled with near-field communication technology. Dynamic information of a user of a mobile device, such as the identity of his or her current environment, is determined using near-field communication, such as radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags. Static information regarding the user is also determined, where such static information can include the user's preferences regarding how the mobile device should adapt to certain environments. An abstracted contextual situation of the user is synthesized based on this dynamic and static information. One or more adaptation directives for the mobile device of the user are determined based on the user's abstracted contextual situation.

  • Patent number: 7669074
    Abstract: Embodiments herein provide a fault-handling scheme based on forward recovery for cooperative workflow environments. The fault handling scheme relies on the correct placement of transaction scopes and their associated fault and compensation handlers for maintaining correct application semantics, a fault propagation scheme for forwarding faults to a workflow component that has the corresponding fault handler, and a distributed mechanism for collecting data of completed workflow components to facilitate recovering from faults. The fault handling scheme makes use of control flow messages to facilitate compensation of nested transaction scopes (residing in different components). The workflow components are also modified with additional code for aiding with fault propagation and fault recovery.

  • Patent number: 7606832
    Abstract: A technique for orchestrating composite web services in a constrained data flow environment. Data flow constraints represent the restrictions which the domains involved in composition might want to impose on access to the data they provide or the source from which they can accept data. The data flow constraints are overcome by breaking down an input composite web service specification into topologies (a topology is a set of partitions communicatively connected with one another at runtime). The system applies a rule-based filtering mechanism to choose a topology that does not violate any data flow constraints. Each of the partitions belonging to the chosen topology is executed within the same domain as the corresponding web service it invokes, thus having the same access rights as the corresponding web service. The composite web service is orchestrated in a decentralized fashion using these partitions, thereby ensuring that no data flow constraints are violated.
