  • Publication number: 20070061801
    Abstract: The invention is directed to a file system builder for building a file system from a source package database of a source machine with a first platform according to a keyword, wherein the file system can be installed into a target machine with a second platform. The system builder comprises a file system, a generator and a fine tuner. The file system builder engine is used for performing a first query-response communication with the source machine according to the keyword to obtain a package list from the source package database and building up a package table according to the package list, wherein the package list comprises at least one package name. The generator is used for generating a target package set according to the package table and the second platform. The fine tuner is used for adjusting the target package set to be a file system.

  • Publication number: 20020198948
    Abstract: A virtual email server system for providing at least one PDA to receive email from an incoming message server. The virtual email server system includes a database, pre-process agent, mail agent, and content converter agent. After a predetermined time interval, the mail agent outputs a signal to the pre-process agent to query identity information for the last message Then, the mail agent checks the incoming message server according to the identity information and receives a new message from the incoming message server. Thereafter, the mail agent forwards the new message to the content converter agent to transform content of the new message into an internally formatted message. Finally, the content converter agent sends the internally formatted message to the pre-process agent, and the pre-process agent stores the internally formatted message to the database.
