  • Patent number: 10228921
    Abstract: Processor hardware detects when memory aliasing occurs, and assures proper operation of the code even in the presence of memory aliasing. Because the hardware can detect and correct for memory aliasing, this allows a compiler to make optimizations such as register promotion even in regions of the code where memory aliasing can occur. The result is code that is more optimized and therefore runs faster.

  • Patent number: 10089119
    Abstract: A computer operating system with a map that relates API namespaces to components that implement an interface contracts for the namespaces. When an API namespace is to be used, a loader within the operating system uses the map to load components based on the map. An application can reference an API namespace in the same way as it references a dynamically linked library, but the implementation of the interface contract for the API namespace is not tied to a single file or to a static collection of files. The map may identify versions of the API namespace or values of runtime parameters that may be used to select appropriate files to implement an interface contract in scenarios that may depend on factors such as hardware in the execution environment, a version of the API namespace against which an application was developed or the application accessing the API namespace.

  • Patent number: 9916187
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for a graph database system that accepts custom graph analytic programs that are written in a high-level graph-specific programming language and compiles the programs into executables that, when executed, directly access graph data of a graph that is stored in the graph database. In this way, a low-level data-access API is avoided. Also, a graph analytic program, which only describes an abstract description of an algorithm, does not include any details regarding data access. In one technique, a user is not required to include explicit parallelization in a graph analytic program in order for the graph analytic program to take advantage of parallelization. A compiler of the graph database system identifies portions of the graph analytic program that can benefit from parallelization and, in response, generates parallelized executable code that corresponds to those portions.

  • Patent number: 9860346
    Abstract: A method beginning with adding new resource to an enterprise system. Responsive to adding, an API builder executed by the computer automatically builds a new API exclusively for the new resource. The new API is configured to manage communications between the new resource and the proxy server based on a context resource identifier provided by the API builder and stored in an identifier data structure. The context resource identifier is to be provided to the gateway in response to a request from the client to access the new resource using a uniform resource identifier that identifies to the new resource. The context resource identifier is static over time within the enterprise. A proxy server uses the context resource identifier to call the new API in order to access the new resource, whereby a speed of communication between the client and the new API is increased.
