  • Patent number: 9513941
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide method of generating application programming interfaces (APIs) in a codeless manner. The method generates a schema description of a data storage with which an API-accessible object may have to exchange data (e.g., from which the object may have to read data and/or to which the object may have to write data) to process an API request during the execution of an application. Based on the generated schema description, the method constructs one or more data graphs, with each data graph representing one set of relationships between different sets of fields in the data storage. After generating the data graphs, the method generates a large number of possible API permutations by using the generated data graphs. The method presents the generated sample APIs so that a developer can select and customize one or more APIs while developing an application.

    Abstract: Techniques for common users and roles, and commonly-granted privileges and roles are described. In one approach, the DBMS of a container database allows for the creation of common roles and common users that are shared across the container database. Thus, when a common role or a common user is established, the common role or common user is propagated to each database of the container database. In another approach, the DBMS of a container database allows privileges and roles to be granted commonly or locally. When a privilege or role is granted commonly, the privilege applies in each of the databases of a container database. When a privilege or role is granted locally, the privilege applies only in the database to which the grantor of the privilege or role established a connection.

    Abstract: Techniques are provided for improving the speed and accuracy of analytics on big data using theta sketches, by converting fixed-size sketches to theta sketches, and by performing set operations on sketches. In a technique for performing a set operation, two sketches are analyzed to identify the maximum value of each sketch. The maximum values of the two sketches are compared. Based the comparison, one or more values are removed from the sketch whose maximum value is greater. After the removal, a set operation (e.g., union, intersection, or difference) is performed based on the modified sketch and the unmodified sketch. A result of the set operation is a third sketch, which may be used to estimate a cardinality of the larger data sets that are represented by the two input sketches.

  • Publication number: 20150134680
    Abstract: A data-processing system facilitates processing a data stream to assist other devices to pre-fetch elements of the data stream, out-of-sequence, for uninterrupted playback. During operation, the system can receive a data file, and segments the data file into a sequence of content objects. The system then determines a target content object that is to be processed out-of-sequence, and a corresponding source content object. The system then inserts a reference to the target content object, into the source content object, and stores the sequence of content objects. A client device can disseminate interest to obtain the data stream's content objects. Upon receiving a content object, the client device can determine whether the content object includes a reference to other content objects. If so, the client device can disseminate interests for these referenced content objects.

  • Publication number: 20150134682
    Abstract: Systems and methods for dynamically integrating disparate computer-aided dispatch (CAD) systems are disclosed. The systems and methods provide bi-directional interoperability between disparate CAD systems and maintain stateful ongoing interactions between interconnected CAD systems. Information objects in one CAD system are associated and bound to related objects in other CAD systems through a centralized information hub that transforms data items intelligently to facilitate communication and interaction between the CAD systems connected to the hub. The described systems and methods maintain complete and current perspectives of all relevant information for each CAD system connected to the information hub, thereby eliminating the need for point-to-point intelligence maintained by the CAD systems about the other interconnected CAD systems.

  • Patent number: 9031933
    Abstract: A semantic query over an RDF database is received with RDF database statistics and access methods for evaluating triple patterns in the query. The semantic query is expressed as a parse tree containing triple patterns and logical relationships among the triple patterns. The parse tree and access methods create a data flow graph containing a plurality of triple pattern and access method pair nodes connected by a plurality of edges, and an optimal flow tree through the data flow graph is determined such that costs are minimized and all triple patterns in the semantic query are contained in the optimal flow tree. A structure independent execution tree defining a sequence of evaluation through the optimal flow tree is created and is transformed into a database structure dependent query plan. This is used to create an SQL query that is used to evaluate the semantic query over the RDF database.

  • Patent number: 9031955
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed towards generating a representative sampling as a subset from a larger dataset that includes unstructured data. A graphical user interface enables a user to provide various data selection parameters, including specifying a data source and one or more subset types desired, including one or more of latest records, earliest records, diverse records, outlier records, and/or random records. Diverse and/or outlier subset types may be obtained by generating clusters from an initial selection of records obtained from the larger dataset. An iteration analysis is performed to determine whether a sufficient number of clusters and/or cluster types have been generated that exceed at least one threshold and when not exceeded, additional clustering is performed on additional records. From the resultant clusters, and/or other subtype results, a subset of records is obtained as the representative sampling subset.

  • Patent number: 9026533
    Abstract: Documents written using a markup language such as XML may be decomposed into Path and Parent Associated Node (PPAN) elements, each of which is a linear data structure that includes the content of a node, the parent-child relationship of the node, and the path level of the node. A number of PPAN elements may be grouped together to form A PPAN chain. A PPAN matching process uses the PPAN elements/PPAN chain to search for structured documents that match the PPAN chain. The PPAN matching process is able to perform query and match at the same time to accelerate the PPAN matching process, and also enables complex services to be represented by generic structured documents. Optionally, the PPAN matching process may support wildcard requests so that services may be discovered without prior knowledge of the services.

  • Patent number: 9026538
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for performing transactions on data entities in a database and a transactional database. The database comprises an ordered set of data stores with at least one static data store, wherein said static data store uses an index structure based on a non-updatable representation of an ordered set of integers according to the principle of compressed inverted indices. The method allows to generate a modifiable data store when the performed transaction comprises an insert, update or delete operation, to execute operations of the transaction on the ordered set being present at the time when the transaction has been started and, if present, on the modifiable data store and to convert data stores to a new static data store, The insert, update or delete operation are executed on the modifiable data store which is the only data store modifiable for the transaction.

  • Publication number: 20150120746
    Abstract: A database server receives a query associated with a calculation scenario that defines a data flow model that includes one or more calculation nodes. Each calculation node defines one or more operations to execute on the database server, the database server comprising a column-oriented database. Thereafter, the database server instantiates the calculation scenario and executes the operations defined by the calculation nodes of the instantiated calculation scenario to result in a responsive data set having a result table with a row for each column in the column-oriented database implicated by the query having a constant value. The database server then provides the data set to the application server. Related apparatus, systems, methods, and articles are also described.
