  • Patent number: 10990577
    Abstract: An ordered sequence of two or more filter provider executable objects are associated, each configured to select successive subsets of data in a registry via a database upon a user request to create and configure a filtered selection. Upon a user selection of a save feature, each associated filter provider executable object is serialized in the ordered sequence, and each serialization is collected into an ordered list of serializations and saved. The serialization of each filter provider executable object is performed by one of the respective filter provider executable object and a filter provider executable object of a same type as the respective facet provider object. A selection statement is constructed from the associated filter provider executable objects in the ordered sequence. A difference between the constructed selection statement and an actual selection statement is calculated and the selection statement difference is appended to the saved ordered list of serializations.

  • Patent number: 10838983
    Abstract: A system and method enable the selection of a time range, or other record selection criteria, of database records for upload from a local database source and for transfer to a remote database. A specifically bounded time period is selected to limit the number of data records selected for upload in a particular action to those records that are individually associated with date time stamp values falling within the specified time period. This limitation of records selected for inclusion in an upload process to data records having associations with date time stamps falling within a limited time range, or other criteria, reduces a likelihood of overload in transferring data and thereby reduces the incidence of time-outs in the communication of a local database, any intermediary server or software action, and the remote database in an updating of the recipient database to reflect a current state of the local database.

    Abstract: Methods and systems are described that automatically organize directory hierarchies and label individual directories systematically. Upon a number of files in a first directory exceeding a maximum number of files, a second directory is created. The files formerly disposed only in the first directory are organized into both of the first directory and the second directory so that the threshold number of files is not exceeded in either of the first or second directories. Organizing the files into the first and second directories uses vector representations of each of the files generated by the system so that, when organized, the first and second directories each include files with similar content. Labels are selected for each of the directories based on a comparison between a vector representation of the collective contents of each directory and vector representations of titles in a database.

  • Patent number: 10726014
    Abstract: Described herein is a system and method for selecting subexpressions to be materialized. For a predefined storage budget, subexpressions of a set of candidate subexpressions to be materialized to minimize query evaluation cost are selected based upon a calculated utility of the set of candidate subexpressions, interactions of the candidate subexpressions, and, a cost of evaluating the candidate subexpressions. Based upon the subexpressions selected to be materialized, subexpression(s) of the set of candidate subexpressions to use when evaluating particular queries of the set of queries to minimize query evaluation cost are determined.

  • Patent number: 10701009
    Abstract: A technology is described for a message queuing service. An example method may include obtaining a message having message attributes from a shared queue that contains messages intended for destination queues and analyzing the message attributes for the message to identify a message exchange associated with the message, where the message exchange has destination queues subscribed to the message exchange that receive messages via the message exchange. An exchange filter rule for the message exchange may then be identified and used to identify subscribed destination queues linked to the exchange filter rule. The message attributes of the message may then be analyzed to determine whether the value of the message attributes satisfy the exchange filter rule, and the message may be distributed to the subscribed destination queues as a result of the value of the message attribute satisfying the exchange filter rule.

  • Patent number: 10698960
    Abstract: A method and a content validation and coding system (CVCS) for validating and coding content of an electronic document for search engine optimization (SEO) are provided. The CVCS integrates with application programming interfaces (APIs) of search engines and/or media platforms. The CVCS creates a categorized repository of schema codes. The CVCS executes a web crawler for crawling and indexing an electronic document to be coded and content related thereto, from one or more search engines and/or media platforms via the APIs, and identifies structured data and content in the electronic document. The CVCS validates the identified content based on analytic criteria and determines optimal schema codes from the categorized repository and/or dynamically generated supplementary schema codes. The CVCS generates a structured data code map (SDCM) of the optimal schema codes and codes the validated content with the optimal schema codes within the identified structured data using the SDCM for SEO.

  • Patent number: 10678519
    Abstract: Techniques are described for receiving a feature request for an application feature of a mobile application. An annotated model class may be determined that corresponds to the feature request and includes class annotations characterizing a server response object stored using an application server and including application data associated with the application feature. An annotated data contract may be determined that includes contract annotations mapping the annotated model class to the server response object and defining a persistence strategy for storing and accessing the application data at an application server and at one or more local caches of a mobile device. A request object may be used to fetch the server response object from the application server. Then, from the fetched server response object and using the class annotations of the annotated model class, a runtime application data model may be generated that is executable by the mobile application platform.

  • Patent number: 10671581
    Abstract: Performing hierarchical computations in relational database management systems, where the hierarchical computations are based on tabular input data that builds non-tree topologies by modifying the tabular input data to form tree topologies. One or more nodes, in a hierarchy of nodes, generated from tabular data, can have a non-tree-like topology. One or more attributes of entries in the tabular indexed data structure associated with the one or more nodes having the non-tree-like topology can be modified. The modified attributes can cause the tabular indexed data to form a tree-like topology. The modifying can be based on a type of non-tree-like topology of the one or more nodes having the non-tree-like topology. A navigation function can be selected and applied to the modified tabular indexed data structure to determine a navigation result for traversing the hierarchy of nodes. The navigation result can be provided and the hierarchy traversed.
