  • Publication number: 20120030581
    Abstract: According to some embodiments, a business user interface page associated with a business service provider may be established. The user interface page may have, for example, at least one in-port to receive data from components and at least one out-port to provide data to components. A mashup component may be embedded within the business user interface page, and may also have at least one out-port to provide data to components. A display of the user interface page to a client may then be facilitated, including the embedded mashup component, wherein the mashup component combines and displays data received from a plurality of external data sources.

  • Publication number: 20120030592
    Abstract: According to some embodiments, input may be received from a designer via a runtime authoring tool associated with a business service provider user interface page. The designer input defining at least one in-port to receive data from components and at least one out-port to provide data to components. A mashup component may then be embedded within the business user interface page in accordance with the input received from the designer. Moreover, a display of the user interface page to a client may be facilitated, including the embedded mashup component. Further, according to some embodiments the mashup component consumes business context data and combines and displays data received from a plurality of external data sources.

  • Patent number: 7657528
    Abstract: In a computer system (100) that launches application services for predetermined roles, a service-to-role assignment is customized in a target table. The user inserts a CD-ROM with master and reference tables, and the system automatically provides the target table. The master table (119) stores a first assignment (112) of application services (S, 151-156) to roles (RO), and stores a second assignment (113) of service attributes (SA), such as language or industry branch, of the application services (S). The reference table (129) stores reference attributes (REA) for each application service (S) in the master table. The service representations for each role (RO) are forwarded from the master table (119) into the target table (149) if service and reference attributes match.

  • Patent number: 7441239
    Abstract: A role-based computer system has a first processor with a computer program (100) and has further processors with application systems (Sy1, Sy2, Sy3) and application services (Se). The program generates a start instruction for the further processors to execute the services by consecutively receiving a log-in identification from the user and looking up in a first assignment table (101) for a role (Ro), looking up in a second assignment table (102) to determine logical services (LSe) assigned to the role; and looking up in a second assignment table to determine a pointer (P(Sy/Se)) to the services (Se) that are assigned to the logical service. The pointer has first and second portions to identify the application system (Sy) and the application service (Se), respectively, and becomes part of the start instruction (350).

  • Patent number: 7290147
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a method, computer program product and system for adjusting roles in a computer system (100) that launch application services (301-307) by a first user who is assigned to at least one role. A first role (110) calls a second role (150) by reference (111). Both roles comprise representations of applications services (101, 102, 103) and (104, 105). When representations in the second role are modified, for example, application services are added (106, 107), a delta list (112) for the first reference is automatically created to conditionally prevent the first role (110) from referencing to at least some of the modified representations of the second role (150). This is achieved by using a rule database (118) containing rules about application services that are mutually exclusive and checking for conflicts between the representations of the first role and modified, second role. A second user, e.g.

  • Patent number: 7222369
    Abstract: A method includes storing a plurality of role data entries on a storage device coupled to a computer system, each role data entry corresponding to an assigned role of at least one of a plurality of individuals, each role corresponding to an enterprise with which the individual is associated and corresponding to a set of resources accessible through the computer system, receiving at the computer a resource request from one of the individuals, determining whether the requested resource is included in the set of accessible resources corresponding to the assigned role of the requesting individual, and selectively permitting access to the requested resource if the resource is determined to be in the set of resources corresponding to the assigned role of the requesting individual.
