  • Patent number: 10942924
    Abstract: An approach for improving LOB query performance via automatic inference of locator-less LOB by value semantics in a relational database system is provided. A relational database management system (RDBMS) is implemented to perform operations on LOBs based on the semantics of a statement. During statement compilation, the RDBMS identifies inline LOB column(s) that are not required to be returned to a client. During execution, the identified column(s) are accessed via a shared buffer cache and fed to an operator for evaluation. For inline LOB column(s) that must be returned to the client, during execution, the inline LOB data is copied from the shared buffer cache to a temporary buffer area. Data in the temporary buffer area is fed to an operator for evaluation and is used to create a LOB locator for the inline LOB column(s) that must be returned to the client.

    Abstract: Systems for managing static assets of web applications. A method embodiment includes identifying a web application that comprises a code base and a set of static assets, then separating the code base of the web application from the set of static assets that are referenced by the web application. The code base is deployed as application services whereas the static assets are deployed as static asset containers. Specifically, the set of static assets referenced by the application services are deployed in containers that are instantiated separately from where the application services are instantiated. Requests to access the application services and requests to access the static assets are tracked by taking performance measurements of the systems that process the accesses. Dynamic scaling of static asset containers is done independently from dynamic scaling of the application services. The dynamic scaling is based on combinations of measured usage and/or any system performance characteristics.

  • Patent number: 10803033
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems and methods for enhanced mapping of transaction data to a target document, and for classifying line items of the mapped transaction data, using classification algorithms. Embodiments provide a system including a column mapping module to receive a target scheme specifying a target structure for the target document, receive transaction data having a source structure, and map at least one source column to at least one target column of the target columns based on application of classification algorithms to features identified from the source transaction data. The system also includes a row classification module to classify the rows of the mapped transaction data into classification categories. The system also includes a validation handler to receive validation input from a user, validating the column mapping and/or the row classification. The validating including accepting the recommendation or rejecting the recommendation and selecting a correct choice.

  • Patent number: 10789220
    Abstract: Implementations for data migration in a maintenance procedure executed on a software system include actions of providing a first access schema, through which a first version of an application accesses data in a database system, establishing an API-schema, through which at least one direct consumer accesses data in the database system, the API-schema including one or more proxy objects that are mapped to respective one or more objects of the first access schema based on metadata of the API-schema, the metadata providing a mapping and one or more object definitions, and in response to execution of a maintenance procedure: providing a second access schema, through which a second version of the application accesses data in the database system, switching to the second access schema, and revising the mapping of the API-schema, such that at least one proxy object of the API-schema maps to a respective object of the second access schema.

  • Patent number: 10789242
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide a system for managing a materialized view of data in a data store. During operation, the system obtains a first creation time of a first materialized view of the data in the data store. Next, the system verifies that the first materialized view is not affected by deletions applied to the data since the first creation time. The system then identifies one or more additions to the data that are not included in the first materialized view. Finally, the system applies the additions to the first materialized view to maintain an eventual consistency of the first materialized view with the data store.

  • Patent number: 10779050
    Abstract: Example embodiments provide a media content news feed identifying one or more media content streams that may be received and displayed. In an example embodiment, media content alert information is received at a media content device that describes at least one of a plurality of media content streams receivable at the media content device via a network. The received media content alert information is processed to generate a content news feed including one or more content news items. The content news feed is presented using the display device. A selection of one of the content news items of the feed is received, with the selected content news item identifying a corresponding media content stream of the plurality of streams. Based on the selected content news item, the corresponding media content stream is processed.

  • Patent number: 10764238
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a method for a network controller that manages several logical networks. The method receives a specification of a logical network that includes at least one logical forwarding element attached to a logical service (e.g., DHCP). The method selects at least one host machine to host the specified logical service from several host machines designated for hosting logical services. The method generates logical service configuration information for distribution to the selected host machine. In some embodiments, the method selects a master host machine and a backup host machine for hosting logical service. In some embodiments, a particular one of the designated host machines hosts at least two DHCP services for two different logical networks as separate processes operating on the particular host machine.

  • Patent number: 10762984
    Abstract: A method provides fully autonomous patient matching by entities of a federated healthcare system. The method includes receiving an electronically formatted query for a patient from an autonomous healthcare entity in a federation of healthcare entities. The query includes at least an identifier of the entity, a unique patient identifier of the patient generated by the entity, and demographics of the patient. The method further includes searching a federated master patient index stored in master patient index storage for an entry likely to correspond to the patient. The method further includes identifying an entry for the patient. The method further includes updating the identified entry to include at least the identifier of the entity, the unique patient identifier of the patient generated by the entity and the demographics.

  • Patent number: 10764109
    Abstract: Instantiating a resource of an IT-service includes analyzing a service model of an IT-service, the service model including a node representing a resource for providing the IT-service. A resource type of the resource being indicated by the node is determined, and a resource manager being operable to instantiate the resource is identified. A resource-manager-specific API of the resource manager is identified, and at least one abstract method for instantiating the resource is overridden with a resource-manager specific method of the resource-manager-specific API. The resource-manager specific method for instantiating the resource represented by the node is executed.

  • Patent number: 10747783
    Abstract: Improved access of a multidimensional database can be implemented using a space-filling curve, such as a z-order curve, and a tree structure. A state engine is configured to track the state of the dimensions of the database as the tree structure is traversed. Different states allow optimizations such as avoidance of analyzing a dimension for further nodes of the tree and removal of multiple nodes in a sub-tree.
