  • Patent number: 10291492
    Abstract: To determine an association between elements associated with a unified display on a screen, a request associated with the unified display is received from a browser, and a response to the request is identified as a first element associated with the unified display. A second element is identified as being spawned from the first element, if a parameter associated with the first element, which can be an event, a source, or both, is determined to be associated with the second element also. In that case, the second element is determined to be associated with the first element via the parameter.

  • Patent number: 10275538
    Abstract: A resource set comprising a set of resources may be provided to the public. It may be desirable to associate with the resources a set of public names, such as friendly URLs that may be more memorable, may indicate to users the type of resource so named, and may promote indexing of the resources by search engines. A name hierarchy (such as a portion of a file system) may store at least one reference that associates a public name with a resource. A name hierarchy navigation logic may facilitate navigation through the name hierarchy, and may specify a particular location within the name hierarchy where a reference associated with the public name is to be stored. This manner of associating public names with resources may promote the scalability and efficiency in associating public names with resources and in retrieving a resource associated with a particular public name.

  • Patent number: 10241985
    Abstract: An intelligent and versatile information exchange platform provides a delivery service operable to perform, in a network environment, processing a document in a first process context according to a first itinerary associated with a sender, including determining whether any receiver policy rule is applicable to the document. If so, the delivery service can determine a second itinerary in view of the receiver policy rule and automatically transition to act as a receive service for the receiver such that the document is processed is a second process context according to the second itinerary associated with the receiver. When no receiver policy rule is found or applicable to the document based on the document type of the document, the delivery service can deliver the document to the receiver under the first process context.

    Abstract: Aspects of expanded icon navigation are described. In one example, the hierarchical structure of a network site accessible over a computer network is indexed to generate an indexed zone hierarchy of the network site. Access across the indexed zone hierarchy of the network site is monitored to assemble a collection of accessed resources on the network site. A resource at the network site is registered as a marked resource, and a marked resource anchor associated with the marked resource is generated. A number of branches of the marked resource anchor are them populated for the network site based on the indexed zone hierarchy of the network site, the marked resource, and the collection of accessed resources.

    Abstract: A system and method for teaching computer programming contains software for providing a reference to a device and providing multiple views of a programming of the device. A textual view has programming code for controlling the device, a graphical view has icons to be placed, interconnected, and modified in a flow diagram in a programming area, and a simulation view displays a configuration of the device and a response of the device to the programming code. A configuration of the icons, when placed in the programming area, represent blocks of the programming code, where each block corresponds to a behavior of a respective programming object. The blocks behave in a specific manner based on the configuration of the icons. An input device modifies the programming code in the textual view, icons and interconnection in the graphical view, and configuration of the device in the simulation view, thus modifying the programming.

    Abstract: A method and apparatus are described for summarizing a document. For each node in the document that satisfies a marking criteria, a start and end mark pair is stored in a summary in document order. The start mark specifies a location in the document where the node starts, and the end mark specifies a location in the document where the node ends. When evaluating a query for a hierarchical path, the document is streamed into memory until the mark of a tag matches a start mark in the summary. If that tag does not fit within the path, then streaming of the document may resume at the end mark, thereby skipping the node during streaming evaluation. Translation information may be used to indicate a logical position relative to the marks in the summary when the document is modified.

  • Patent number: 9965561
    Abstract: A tracking system passively tracks and records searches conducted by actual search engine users. The recorded data for each search event preferably includes the search query submitted, the search engine used, the search result item (e.g., web page) selected, the position (e.g., page number) of this item, and the user's IP address. The collected data is aggregated and analyzed to generate data regarding the search queries used to locate and access particular destinations (e.g., web pages and sites). This data may be used for various purposes, such as (1) to generate reports showing, e.g., how users reach a particular destination from different search engines and geographic locations, (2) to select content to display on a destination page, such that the content is relevant to search queries commonly used to locate that page, and (3) to update the database of one search engine to reflect searches conducted on other search engines.

    Abstract: A 1st domain makes a request to a 2nd domain using a URI including the name of the 2nd domain, a public path for the domains, and a cryptographically secure path generated by the 1st domain. The 2nd domain makes a request to the 1st domain using a URI including the name of the 1st domain, the pre-defined public path, and the cryptographically secure path. The 1st domain or the 2nd domain sets a cookie including a message (the cookie's path scope includes the pre-defined public path and the cryptographically secure path, the cookie's domain scope includes all sub-domains of the nearest common ancestor for the 1st and 2nd domains), and makes a request to the other domain using a URI including the name of the other domain, the pre-defined public path, and the cryptographically secure path, which causes a web browser to send the cookie to the other domain.
