  • Patent number: 8849751
    Abstract: A first tenant-nonspecific database table on a repository accessible to an application server of a multi-tenant software delivery architecture can maintain a first record designating a first predefined generic field of a plurality of predefined generic fields. The first record can include an organization-specific master data field definition of the first predefined generic field maintained in a first tenant-specific definition field assigned to a first customer tenant of a plurality of customer tenants that are accessible via the application server. Each customer tenant of the plurality of customer tenants can provide a discrete organization-specific business configuration of a core software platform. A second tenant-nonspecific database table maintained on the repository can maintain a second record that can include a key value designating the first tenant, a record designator, and an organization-specific master data value corresponding to the first predefined generic field.

  • Publication number: 20140006236
    Abstract: A business object model, which reflects data that is used during a given business transaction, is utilized to generate interfaces. This business object model facilitates commercial transactions by providing consistent interfaces that are suitable for use across industries, across businesses, and across different departments within a business during a business transaction. In some operations, software creates, updates, or otherwise processes information related to an invoice schedule and an invoice schedule processing log business object.

  • Publication number: 20130179399
    Abstract: A first tenant-nonspecific database table on a repository accessible to an application server of a multi-tenant software delivery architecture can maintain a first record designating a first predefined generic field of a plurality of predefined generic fields. The first record can include an organization-specific master data field definition of the first predefined generic field maintained in a first tenant-specific definition field assigned to a first customer tenant of a plurality of customer tenants that are accessible via the application server. Each customer tenant of the plurality of customer tenants can provide a discrete organization-specific business configuration of a core software platform. A second tenant-nonspecific database table maintained on the repository can maintain a second record that can include a key value designating the first tenant, a record designator, and an organization-specific master data value corresponding to the first predefined generic field.

  • Patent number: 8074229
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described that permit objects from runtime environments that are incompatible with one another to be co-executed on a computing machine. Depending on which object can service the request, a generic proxy may send the request to the proxy of the particular runtime environment associated with that object. The proxy may call the appropriate methods of the object therein to service the request. Each runtime environment may be isolated from other runtime environments by a container such that catastrophic errors in one runtime environment do not disrupt the execution of objects in another runtime environment. A first object in a first runtime environment may execute methods in a second object in a second runtime environment by invoking a proxy of the second runtime environment to call the methods of the second object.
