  • Patent number: 9003282
    Abstract: A web-based system, method and program product are provided for adding content to a content object stored (e.g., a custom compilation or prepublished work) in a data repository as a group of hierarchically related content entities. Each noncontainer content object is preferably stored as a separate entity in the data repository. Each content entity is also stored as a row in a digital library index class as a collection of attributes and references to related content entities and containers. As the user selects desired objects for inclusion in a content object, the system arranges the objects hierarchically, e.g., into volumes, chapters and sections according to the order specified by the user. The system then creates a file object (e.g., a CBO) defining the content object that contains a list or outline of the container and noncontainer entities selected, their identifiers, order and structure. This file object is stored separately in the data repository.

  • Patent number: 8615500
    Abstract: A file server has a data compression facility and also a snapshot copy facility or a data de-duplication facility that shares data blocks among files. Compression of the file data on a file system block basis leads to a problem of partially used file system data blocks when the data blocks are shared among files. This problem is solved by partial block allocation so that file system data blocks are shared among files that do not share identical data. Block pointers in the file mapping metadata point to virtual blocks representing the compressed data blocks, and associated virtual block metadata identifies portions of file system data blocks that store the compressed data. For example, a portion of a file system data block is identified by a sector bitmap, and the virtual block metadata also includes a reference count to indicate sharing of a compressed data block among files.

  • Patent number: 8495176
    Abstract: A content management system (CMS) includes a value-add application with a first set of XML content services, one or more dedicated XML processing servers with a second and other sets of XML content services, and a core CMS with a third set of XML content services. The content management system may be designed to provide XML content services at any of these three tiers of processing. A first threshold is defined that allows the value-add application to determine when to offload XML content services to a dedicated XML processing server. A second threshold is defined that allows the core CMS to determine when to offload XML content services to a dedicated XML processing server. Callback services are included that allow each tier of XML content services to send or receive additional information to complete the XML processing. The result is a content management system that is very powerful and flexible.

  • Patent number: 8365067
    Abstract: From a logical point of view, a document processing system allows to read and write single documents. However, physically all documents within a document processing system are usually stored in a sequential binary format and therefore are not accessible in the binary format. In order to move a single document in its physical representation i.e. the binary format, it is proposed to use the logical view to obtain all structural information describing the document as well as its content and all meta data. This information will then be used to create an exact copy of that document outside the document processing system. The invention particularly proposes a native file format to write content such as Lotus Domino notes, that is documents as well as design elements like folders, agents, buttons, etc. to a file. The native file format allows to read content of a document in binary format and write it in a serialized manner to the file.

  • Patent number: 8346737
    Abstract: A compact binary encoding technique for information that is logically hierarchically structured, such as XML data, maintains all of the features of XML data in a useable form, such as the hierarchical structure underlying the data. Hence, data encoded in this format can undergo XML-based processing on-the-fly as it is being received or fetched, as if the data was being processed linearly in its textual character-based format. Processing of data encoded in this format can begin without having to wait for and decode the entire data set. The overhead due to XML tags is significantly minimized. The encoded data can be processed more efficiently because the data is pre-parsed. Values may be stored in their native type formats and, therefore, processing of the encoded data avoids costly type conversions. Further, any available structural constraint information can be effectively exploited.

  • Patent number: 8312370
    Abstract: Described embodiments provide a system for assembly of structured documents having at least a memory, a processor, and a circuit. The memory stores documents. The processor identifies a template for generating a document. The template defines fields having a specified position and length within the document. The processor stores characters based on data associated with fields to locations of memory associated with the fields. Based partly on the text and length of the field, the processor stores indicators for portions of fields to be removed from the document. An indicator includes one or more specified character values, which may include a first byte value indicative of a start-of-heading character, and a second of byte value indicative of a number of characters to be removed. A circuit accesses the document from the memory and removes portions of fields based on the indicators to generate a portion of an assembled document.
