Compatibility Emulation Patents (Class 703/27)
  • Patent number: 12008342
    Abstract: An existing package definition that statically accesses data sources may be used to generate a new definition of the package that dynamically selects between available data sources at runtime. Read-only operations in the new package can be replaced with parameterized views that select between data sources using a session variable. Data manipulation code in the existing package definition can be moved from the package to a new object type. The new definition of the package may keep the same public interface, but the function/procedure definitions can call corresponding functions/procedures in the new object type. Data manipulation code in these functions in the object can be moved to new member functions that separate data manipulation code from data processing code. Child object types can be defined for each data source that override these member functions to access different data sources.

  • Patent number: 11455470
    Abstract: A method for building a distributed reactive streaming microservices architecture having a decentralized, self-managed, and autonomous data message routing mechanism. The method comprises processing of data message by multiple microservices and generating routing patterns in the form of a fingerprint in response to the message-processing by the microservices. As the message is input into the microservices architecture, a fingerprint of the message is generated, wherein the fingerprint may comprise a payload flag in which payload information is embedded. A first microservice is triggered by recognizing the payload flag. As the message is processed by the first microservice, the fingerprint is updated by appending a first flag to the payload flag. The message with the updated fingerprint is subsequently recognized by a second microservice. As such, the routing of the message is accomplished by the changing fingerprint being recognized by the desired microservices to be triggered.

  • Patent number: 10956497
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are embodiments of systems, methods, and products comprises an analytic server, which uses scalable vector graphic (SVG) format to encapsulate building floorplan and metadata. The analytic server creates a floorplan map in SVG format that includes both a graphic map and a specification file. When a user issues an information request by clicking on one graphical element, the analytic server determines the object identifier of the clicked graphical element, queries the specification file to receive metadata about the clicked graphical element based on the object identifier, and renders a user interface to display the metadata about the graphical element. When the user modifies the graphical element, the analytic server determines new data of the graphical element and updates the corresponding object metadata with the new data in the specification file.

  • Patent number: 10884787
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for implementing execution guarantees in an on-demand code execution system or other distributed code execution environment, such that the on-demand code execution system attempts to execute code only a desired number of times. The on-demand code execution system can utilize execution identifiers to distinguish between new and duplicative requests, and can decline to allocate computing resources for duplicative requests. The on-demand code execution system can further detect errors during execution, and rollback the execution to undo the execution's effects. The on-demand code execution system can then restart execution until the code has been execute the desired number of times.

  • Patent number: 10853213
    Abstract: Installation errors for removable hardware components are typically identified only after placing an IHS (Information Handling System) back into service. Upon servicing a removeable hardware component and powering the IHS, a hardware validation request may be issued during booting of the IHS. In certain instances, a technician may trigger a hardware validation request via keyboard inputs during booting. If a hardware validation request is detected, the IHS is diverted from booting to a hardware validation process that identifies the removeable hardware components coupled to the hardware connectors supporting removeable hardware and determines a support level for the removeable hardware components at their installed connector locations. If performance issues are indicated by the support level for the hardware component, a hardware installation recommendation is displayed. The technician may resume booting or perform additional service on the IHS based on the recommendation.

  • Patent number: 10838920
    Abstract: A server executes in a virtual machine and facilitates execution of lightweight plug-in functions that respond to user interface commands from a client device. The functions augment the commands with additional processing even though they may not implement a user interface, they generate data in real time, they access any data repository or data source, can be written in any programming language, and they perceive that they have infinite storage. The client device need not have custom software and implements a traditional file-folder user interface using standard applications. Folders and file contents displayed on the client device need not exist until specifically requested by the user. Plug-in functions have their own root file system but may share a network namespace. Data may be input to a function using a folder name or a micro Web server. Two functions share a database connection to a remote computer.
