  • Patent number: 9292507
    Abstract: Methods, systems and techniques for managing revisions of documents in a collaborative, multiuser document store are provided. Example embodiments provide an Automated Document Revision Management Server (“ADRMS”) to automatically cluster and remove revisions of file content for easy navigation and management. Revisions are trimmed when necessary to conserve storage space. The ADRMS creates logical clusters of revisions based upon some measure of their similarities. That is, revisions that are similar and can be represented by the latest revision in the cluster formulate one cluster, and those that are markedly dissimilar are placed in a different cluster. The logic used to cluster revisions accounts for time-based factors, content-based factors, and context-based factors to determine whether a revision is incremental and can be grouped in the same cluster or is significant enough to warrant a new cluster. Revisions may be trimmed based upon age and/or available space by a revision trimming component.

  • Patent number: 9292268
    Abstract: Systems and methods disclosed herein uniquely define each type of Fortran type descriptor within an executable file or shared library to allow for a rapid determination of how the dynamic type of one object (e.g., a first polymorphic entity) relates to that of another object (e.g., a second polymorphic entity) while allowing for the lazy loading of shared libraries. In one aspect, type descriptor definitions are instantiated (e.g., during compile-time) in each of a number of object files in which polymorphic entities are defined, each type descriptor definition is marked with a singleton attribute, and each group of common type descriptor definitions is associated with a COMDAT group to ensure that only a single copy of each type descriptor is defined in a corresponding executable file at a particular address in memory to which polymorphic entities can reference. Type descriptor addresses can be compared to determine dynamic type relations between two or more polymorphic entities.

  • Patent number: 9262258
    Abstract: The concept of faults and fault handling are added to the execution of continuous event processing (CEP) queries. By introducing fault handling techniques to the processing of CEP queries, users are enabled to instruct a CEP query processor to respond to faults in a customized manner that does not necessarily involve the halting of the CEP query relative to which the faults occurred. For example, a fault might be due to a temporary problem. Under such circumstances, the CEP query processor can be instructed to ignore the fault and allow the execution of the CEP query to continue relative to the remainder of the event stream. Alternatively, if the fault is due to a problem with the CEP query itself, then the CEP query processor can be instructed to propagate the fault through the query processing system until the fault ultimately causes the problematic CEP query to be halted.

One or more processors classify when an application is interacting in the device foreground with a user. For a time period when data for Internet service activities is communicated through the WWAN modem, the processors use a differential traffic control policy to selectively block and allow network access for an application based on whether the application is classified as interacting in the device foreground with a user. The processors provide a network access condition to the application through an application program interface (API), and thus can indicate that Internet data service is unavailable to that particular application based on the classification. A different policy may apply to WLAN modem usage and/or to different WWAN networks.

  • Patent number: 9098290
    Abstract: One embodiment of the present invention provides a system that facilitates diagnostic logging for software components. During operation, the system receives program code for a software component that was generated from an object model, where a key attribute has been specified for the object model. During execution of the program code, the system detects when an instance of the key attribute for the object model is accessed, and attaches state associated with the instance to a thread context in the runtime environment. The system then appends this state to a log during a logging operation to facilitate discovering and analyzing program faults.

  • Patent number: 9086943
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide an approach for integrated development environment (IDE)-based repository searching (e.g., for library elements such as classes and/or functions) in a networked computing environment. In a typical embodiment, a first program code file is received from a first integrated development environment (IDE). The first program file may be associated with a set of attributes as stored in an annotation, header, or the like. Regardless, the first program file may be parsed and indexed into a repository based on the set of attributes. A search request may then be received from a second IDE. Based on the search request and the set of attributes, a matching program code file may then be identified as stored in the repository. Once identified, the matching program code file may be transmitted/communicated to the second IDE to fulfill the search request.

  • Patent number: 9052978
    Abstract: An aspect of the present disclosure provides for applying hot fixes to metadata customizing user interactions based on a software program. In an embodiment, a hot fix containing new files is received. Each new file contains a corresponding modified metadata. The user is presented for selection, differences between each new file and a corresponding existing file. Only the selected differences are then used to form patched files, which thereafter control the user interactions, for example, by replacing the corresponding existing file with the patched file. Accordingly the user is provided enhanced control over which of the differences is applied to the metadata.
