Compiling Code Patents (Class 717/140)
  • Patent number: 9811363
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for predictively managing calls to tasks on an on-demand code execution environment. Specifically, a task profile can be utilized to predict that a call to a first task will be followed by a call to a second task. Thereafter, a virtual machine can be loaded with executable code corresponding the second task, even before the call to the second task is received. If the call to the second task is received, the task can then be executed by utilizing the previously loaded executable code, thus increasing the speed at which the second task can be executed on the on-demand code execution environment.

  • Patent number: 9479398
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide approaches for enforcing runtime policies in a networked computing environment (e.g., a cloud computing environment). Specifically, in a typical embodiment, computer code and data of an application is annotated with metadata defining a set of runtime policies for executing the computer code and data. Once a request is received to run the application, a set of parameters (e.g., geographic location) corresponding to the execution of the computer code and data of the application is dynamically determined, and compared to the runtime policies. The runtime policies for executing the computer code and data are then enforced at runtime. This includes either running the application, or preventing the running of the application in the case that the set of parameters corresponding to the execution of the computer code and data of the application do not satisfy the runtime policies.

  • Patent number: 9465631
    Abstract: An automatic caching system is described herein that automatically determines user-relevant points at which to incrementally cache expensive to obtain data, resulting in faster computation of dependent results. The system can intelligently choose between caching data locally and pushing computation to a remote location collocated with the data, resulting in faster computation of results. The automatic caching system uses stable keys to uniquely refer to programmatic identifiers. The system annotates programs before execution with additional code that utilizes the keys to associate and cache intermediate programmatic results. The system can maintain the cache in a separate process or even on a separate machine to allow cached results to outlive program execution and allow subsequent execution to utilize previously computed results. Cost estimations are performed in order to choose whether utilizing cached values or remote execution would result in a faster computation of a result.

  • Patent number: 9459847
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed towards generating applications that include multi-sized types running in managed code. During the compilation of an intermediate language version of an application, if a multi-size type is encountered, a runtime engine may perform actions to process the multi-size types. Accordingly, architecture information associated with the target computer may be determined. Data types corresponding to the architecture of the target computer and the multi-sized types may be determined based on the architecture information. Native code calls associated with an intermediate language code calls may be determined such that the parameters of the native code calls match the architecture dependent data types. And, a machine code version of the intermediate language code call may be generated. The generated machine code version of the intermediate language code may be executed with the data types specific to the target computer.

  • Patent number: 9430200
    Abstract: API (application program interface) features defined by a set of APIs provide a different cross-sectional view of an application or framework than the view provided by sectioning along class or library boundaries, or binding units, for example. An API feature includes a proper subset of a library of a framework used by an application, and/or APIs which collectively reside in different libraries. A functionality feature API set provides an exposed surface area of a functionality feature of an application. Upon receiving a compilation request and determining that an API feature is to be excluded, an attempt is made to produce a compiled version of the application without the feature's APIs. In some cases, the functionality feature is independent of a baseline functionality of the application. Developers can obtain smaller but fully functional binaries. Framework architects can identify dependencies between API implementations when creating or modifying a software framework's architecture.

  • Patent number: 9417857
    Abstract: Techniques are described for unifying static and dynamic compiler optimizations in source code bases. In an embodiment, a first compiler compiles source code of a target function to generate ahead-of-time (AOT) compiled machine code. A second compiler compiles the source code to generate an intermediate representation (IR) of the target function. In response to determining that the target function should be just-in-time (JIT) compiled, the AOT-compiled machine code for the target function is linked to the IR of the target function. During runtime, a physical processor executes AOT-compiled machine code of an executable program. When the target function is encountered for the first time, a JIT compiler is invoked. The JIT compiler generates JIT-compiled machine code for the target function. The physical processor executes the JIT-compiled machine code in place of the AOT-compiled machine code for the target function.

  • Patent number: 9355229
    Abstract: A Method for protecting an application program executable on a computer against reverse engineering, said application is created to run with at least one selected dynamic link library (DLL) on said computer, comprises the steps of: adding a specific library loader to the executable application program, said loader either contains or has access to said dynamic link library; setting modified references to said dynamic link library such that upon loading said application program and said loader into the main memory of said computer, said dynamic link library is initialized by said library loader instead of the operating system; The library loader and the pseudo-statically linked library could be embedded into the application program, thereby using unused space within the application. The protected application presents itself as a monolithic application without the vulnerable interface to a DLL.
