When a request for a network address to an RPC application providing an RPC program is received from the RPC client, the RPC bind daemon discovers from the module, using the client response address, over which interface(s) the client is accessible. The daemon then selects an address of a network path to the RPC application that the prospective client can access and returns the corresponding network address. The service module monitors the network stack for RPC get address requests and builds tables of client address entries with corresponding network interface identifiers. The entries are retired according to an aging policy.

    Abstract: Subsections of locale objects are dynamically built from locale source files when requested at run-time without building all subsections of the locale object. When a subsection of a locale object is dynamically built, the subsection is stored in global memory so it may be read by multiple applications. Dynamically building subsections of locale objects when requested allows software to operate with a relatively small number of locale objects instead of with hundreds or thousands of locale objects, as is known in the art, and requires fewer system resources because only the requested subsection of the locale object is built when it is requested. The result is significant savings in system-wide resources while still allowing for access to a large number of possible locales.

  • Patent number: 8661410
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, system, and medium is disclosed for implementing a hybrid application server. The server is configured to determine that a bundle deployed onto a dynamic module system defines a component that is manageable by an application server component container. In response to the determining, the application server deploys the component onto the component container and creates an instance of the component in the container so that the container can manage the component. Finally, the application server registers a proxy handle to the component as a service in the dynamic module system. Thereafter, the proxy handle is discoverable and invocable by another component.

  • 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: 8639776
    Abstract: A method of building and assembling programs across computer networks that is dictated by the user to perform logical work without the user using a compiler. Users are able to assemble programs over a network by defining or re-defining which logical components are bound into the overall program without the use of a compiler. Logical components are called and bound into the program at run time, allowing dynamic programming which may be modified at any time without re-compiling the entire program. Each logical component can act independently of other logical components or work in concert with each other. This allows assembly of a program, even though some components may be created using totally different methodologies and/or are constructed by different programmers.

  • Patent number: 8621072
    Abstract: Remote event receivers can register with a document repository computing system to receive notifications of events occurring at a document repository. The remote event receivers may register to receive notifications synchronously, whereby the remote event receivers can provide a response to the notification prior to the occurrence of the event, or asynchronously, whereby the remote event receivers provide no response. Synchronous remote event receivers can also specify in a response to the notification that the event should be canceled or may specify properties that should be changed. Remote event receivers can be pre-event receivers that receive notifications prior to the occurrence of an event, or post-event receivers that receive notifications following the event. When an event is to occur at the document repository, notifications are provided to the pre-event remote event receivers. Once the event has occurred, notifications are provided to the post-event remote event receivers.

  • Patent number: 8612960
    Abstract: Embodiments include a system for loading components with complex intra-dependencies. Components in the system may be assigned at start up to a common loader module. The system detects reference cycles amongst the set of components in the system. All components in a reference cycle may be assigned for loading to the same common loader. This system avoids deadlock scenarios by identifying reference cycles at start up and assigning each cycle to a single common loader. The embodiments of the system also analyze components to be loaded that are identified after start up to determine if they cause a new reference cycle. Components that cause a new reference cycle may not be allowed to be loaded to prevent deadlock loading scenarios.

  • Patent number: 8593458
    Abstract: Aspects include API interfaces for interfacing shaders with other components and/or code modules that provide ray tracing functionality. For example, API calls may allow direct contribution of light energy to a buffer for an identified pixel, and allow emission of new rays for intersection testing alone or in bundles. The API also can provide a mechanism for associating arbitrary data with ray definition data defining a ray to be tested through a shader using the emit ray call. The arbitrary data is provided to a shader associated with an object that is identified subsequently as having been intersected by the ray. The data can include code, or a pointer to code, that can be used by or run after the shader. The data also can be propagated through a series of shaders, and associated with rays instantiated in each shader. Recursive shaders can be recompiled as non-recursive shaders interfacing with API semantics according to the description.
