  • Patent number: 10353750
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to techniques for discovering and exposing middleware applications as service endpoints through a universal connector in a middleware-agnostic fashion that does not require additional coding. In one embodiment, a back-end middleware system identifies a set of middleware applications that operate on an input/output (I/O) data area. Next, the back-end middleware system generates a set of discovery artifacts describing the middleware applications and the I/O data area. A discovery client sends a discovery request to a the back-end middleware system, which sends structured information from the discovery artifacts in response. Based on the structured information, the discovery client creates a REST model for the set of middleware applications, mapper artifacts that map REST operations to the middleware applications, and transformer artifacts that indicate how to convert data between Javascript-object-notation (JSON) format and format that is compatible with the I/O data area.

More specifically, an indirect call function configuration comprises a first application module having a target function of the indirect function call, a second application module with a symbolic reference to the target function of the indirect function call, and a third application module to originate an indirect function call. A compiler determines and indicates, in the program code, that the function pointer value resulting from a non-call reference of a function symbol is solely used to perform indirect calls in the same module, e.g. local-use-only. A linker or loader can read the indication the compiler made in the program code. The linker or loader use the local entry point associated with the target function if the target function is defined in the same module as the reference and is local-use-only.

  • Patent number: 9898310
    Abstract: A method, system, and/or computer program product optimizes execution of a computation. Multiple slots, each of which is a container for information, are defined. A coordinate tuple is defined for each of the multiple slots. The coordinate tuple describes a position of a slot along multiple dimensions in a slot space. The multiple dimensions describe roles for executing a software object, and each of the multiple dimensions has a same level of primacy such that no dimension has primacy over another dimension in the slot space. Multiple method slots are populated with software method objects that address different contexts and purposes as defined by coordinate tuples of the multiple method slots. Software method objects are retrieved from coordinate tuples in the slot space that match a defined context and purpose of a particular computation, which is propagated to a processor that is executing a particular software method object.

  • Patent number: 9760346
    Abstract: Abstract Syntax Trees (ASTs) are generated using the source code of a programming language that include information relating to the structure of the program. The generation of the ASTs may be performed in parallel. The types are split into a number of modules (e.g. configurable) that form an assembly. During the different stages of the compilation process, each module may be compiled in parallel. As the different modules are being compiled (e.g. in parallel), compiler metadata from the different modules may be written to a repository accessible by the different compilation processes. After flowing through the compilation pipeline, each of the enriched ASTs are used for code generation where they are transformed into the target language (e.g. a code stream that can be executed on hardware). The executable code is then stored as part of the assembly. The storage of the code may also be performed in parallel.

  • Patent number: 9747314
    Abstract: An example system for indexing heterogeneous resources includes a data module that invokes one or more APIs, and responsive to the invoked one or more APIs, receives a first set of attributes of one or more cloud resources of a first subset of the set of cloud resources and a second set of attributes of one or more cloud resources of a second subset of the set of cloud resources. The system also includes a normalization module that for at least one attribute of the first and second sets of attributes, searches a database for a normalized attribute corresponding to the respective one attribute, normalizes based on the uniform schema the respective attribute, and places the normalized attribute in a data structure. The system further includes an indexing module that indexes the normalized attributes in the data structure.

  • Patent number: 9589036
    Abstract: A system to implement query-level access by a database engine to an external distributed file system by identifying a results file location of one or more results files on the external distributed file system, and storing the results file locations in external table files on the database engine for subsequent use during retrieval of data from the results files. The database engine serves to process queries where the query specifies the external table (which in turn references locations of the results files). Execution of the query streams data from the external distributed file system into the database engine. The data from the external distributed file system is not stored in the external table files on the database engine; rather, the external table files specify a location of code or operational directives which, when executed, streams results from the external distributed file system to at least one parallel query engine.
