  • Patent number: 9652207
    Abstract: Static type checking can be performed on types and values defined in modules in a system that dynamically composes programs from modules. The types and values do not share a global namespace. Each module defines its own module universe, disjoint from other modules. A language mechanism can establish a local name binding to one module within the content of another module. When type checking at compile time an environment can be established that corresponds to a runtime instance of the program. The static type system can be arranged to align with the runtime values, such that the names used to refer to objects at runtime are the same as the names used to refer to the types of those objects in the static type system. Aliases of a particular type are resolved to a known compile time description of the type.

  • Patent number: 8957960
    Abstract: A machine vision system program editing environment includes near real time context generation. Rather than requiring execution of all preceding instructions of a part program in order to generate a realistic context for subsequent edits, surrogate data operations using previously saved data replace execution of certain sets of instructions. The surrogate data may be saved during the actual execution of operations that are recorded in a part program. An edit mode of execution substitutes that data as a surrogate for executing the operations that would otherwise generate that data. Significant time savings may be achieved for context generation, such that editing occurs within an operating context which may be repeatedly refreshed for accuracy in near real time. This supports convenient program modification by relatively unskilled users, using the native user interface of the machine vision system, rather than difficult to use text-based or graphical object-based editing environments.

A binary representation of each object in an object graph is generated to provide a binary clone of the object graph. Objects created by a dynamic language engine are called dynamic language objects. Objects created by a host (e.g., that hosts the dynamic language engine) are called host objects. Each host object is associated with an intermediate representation thereof via a property bag that describes properties of that host object. Each intermediate representation is understandable by the dynamic language engine. A binary representation of each dynamic language object and each host object may be generated in accordance with the binary format to provide the binary clone.

  • Patent number: 8949785
    Abstract: The present invention extends to methods, systems, and computer program products for creating and manipulating custom compound data types in declarative programs. The present invention allows a developer to create and use custom compound data types without requiring the custom type to be specifically defined (e.g. via registering a custom assembly) in the underlying framework. This is accomplished by providing a data container that is configurable to represent virtually any combination of primitive or compound types defined within the framework. The present invention also provides a declarative model for interacting with data containers representing custom compound data types. This declarative model employs a path-based syntax (or other type of syntax) for accessing the elements of a custom compound data type. Multiple paths can be defined within a single unit of developer input so that multiple elements of a custom data type can be manipulated by the single unit of input.

  • Patent number: 8689192
    Abstract: A method of processing natural language assertions (NLAs) can include identifying an NLA and then translating that NLA into a verification language assertion (VLA) using a natural language parser (NLP) and synthesis techniques. This VLA can be translated into an interpreted NLA (NLA*) using a VLA parser and pattern matching techniques. At this point, the process can allow user review of the NLA* and the NLA. When the user determines that the NLA* and the NLA are the same or have insignificant difference, then verification can be performed using the VLA. The results of the verification can then be back annotated on the NLA. In one fully-automatic embodiment, in addition to comparing the NLA and the NLA*, the VLA and a VLA* (generated from the NLA*) can be compared, thereby providing yet another test of accuracy for the user during verification.

  • Patent number: 8655998
    Abstract: An end-to-end approach is provided for developing and maintaining network device management applications. The approach includes an XML-based development environment for network device management applications that uses Management Data API (MDA) schemas that define a hierarchical data model for components supported by a network device. The XML-based development environment also uses XML schemas to define a common XML-based interface used by management applications to access management data maintained on the network device. The approach provides programmatic access to network device management data and management data schema with an XML-based data model and interface that is consistent across all network device components. The approach includes mechanisms for automatically generating XML requests that conform to a hierarchical data model from requests that conform to a table-based data model.

  • Patent number: 8615735
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable storage media for obfuscating a computer program. A system configured to practice the method identifies a set of executable instructions at a first location in an instruction section of the computer program and identifies a second location in a data section of the computer program. Then the system moves the set of executable instructions to the second location and patches references in the computer program to the set of executable instructions to point to the second location. The instruction section of the computer program can be labeled as _TEXT,_text and the data section of the computer program is labeled as _DATA,_data. The set of executable instructions can include one or more non-branching instructions optionally followed by a branching instruction. The placement of the first and second locations can be based on features of a target computing architecture, such as cache size.

  • Patent number: 8504984
    Abstract: In general, the subject matter described in this specification can be embodied in methods, systems, and program products for selecting a first grammar rule in a programming language grammar. The grammar is used for determining a syntax validity of a programming code statement in a text editor and the first grammar rule includes a hard-to-type symbol that is syntactically correct for the programming code statement. A second grammar rule for the grammar is created. The created second grammar rule is substantially identical to the first grammar rule but the hard-to-type symbol is replaced with an easy-to-type symbol that is syntactically incorrect for the programming code statement. An action is associated with the grammar and is performed upon satisfying the second grammar rule. Performance of the second grammar rule causes the easy-to-type symbol in the programming code statement in the text editor to be replaced with the hard-to-type symbol.

  • Patent number: 8479157
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods and systems for integrating a procedural computational model with a declarative computational model. For example, in one aspect, the present invention provides a method for integrating a plurality of procedural instructions in a procedural computational system with a plurality of declarative rules in a declarative computational system. In such a method, for each of the procedural instructions operating on one or more variables, a hash table indexed by variable names is utilized to determine whether any of these variables participate in at least one of the declarative rules. Upon execution of a procedural instruction that changes a variable participating in a declarative rule, other variables associated with the rule are updated so as to maintain a relationship imposed by the rule among the variables. The updating of the other variables is performed prior to execution of other procedural instructions.

  • Patent number: 8453127
    Abstract: According to some embodiments, a token synchronization gateway may be recognized in a graph-based business process model, such as a business process modeling notation model. A number of upstream artifacts located upstream from the token synchronization gateway may then be identified in the business process modeling notation model. In addition, a final artifact may be identified directly in front of the token synchronization gateway. The token synchronization gateway may then be compiled into code that will be executed at runtime to perform a synchronization process. The synchronization process may, for example, include handling tokens T1 through Tn to synchronize the upstream artifacts, with each token being associated with one of the n upstream artifacts.
