|20140012886||VISUAL DATA IMPORTER - Techniques for visual data import into an object model are described. A graphical user interface concurrently displays a first icon that represents a first object type and a second icon that represents a second object type. Input defining object-to-data mappings between properties of the object types and structured data of one or more data sources is received. Further input defining a relationship type for relationships between the first object type and the second object type is also received. In response to the second input, a graphical representation of the relationship type is displayed, visually linking the first icon to the second icon. Based at least on the object-to-data mappings, the definition of the relationship type, and the structured data, an object model is created, comprising first objects of the first object type, second objects of the second object type, and relationships between the first objects and the second objects.||01-09-2014|
|20130318060||MULTI-ROW TRANSACTIONS - Techniques are provided for more efficient multi-row atomic, consistent, isolated and durable (ACID)-compliant transactions with snapshot isolation semantics (or just “multi-row transactions” for short). In some embodiments, the techniques are implemented in a computing system that includes a client application, a lightweight in-memory lease-based lock service, a multi-row transaction orchestrator, and an underlying database system. The transaction orchestrator implements a read protocol and a write protocol that provides support to the client application for carrying out multi-row transactions against the underlying database system irrespective of whether the database system itself supports multi-row transactions. The transaction orchestrator explicitly maintains transaction-level locks obtained from the lease-based lock service as part of the transaction protocol. Further, the transaction orchestrator is tolerant to lock service failure and unavailability without compromising ACID-compliance and snapshot isolation guarantees to the client application.||11-28-2013|
|20130198624||DOCUMENT-BASED WORKFLOWS - A workflow application allows users to store, manage, and perform tasks related to workflows comprised of ordered sets of documents. The application provides an interface for creating and managing a workflow. Each document added to the workflow is assigned to a particular position in the workflow. Via the interface, the user saves data defining the workflow. In this manner, the workflow may be shared or preserved for subsequent re-use. The application allows a user to perform various tasks with respect to the workflow. Via an interface control presented by the application, the user instigates such tasks. In response, the application causes the task to be performed for each document in the workflow in an order corresponding to the arrangement of the documents within the workflow. For example, the application may render and print each document in the workflow. Or, the application may generate a combined workflow report.||08-01-2013|
|20130191338||CROSS-ACL MULTI-MASTER REPLICATION - Techniques for cross-ACL multi-master replication are provided. The techniques allow a replication site in a multi-master replication system implementing an asynchronous replication protocol and an access control policy to appropriately apply received data change updates to data maintained at the site even where a data change update is missing information because of the implemented access control policy.||07-25-2013|
|20130132348||MANAGING DISCONNECTED INVESTIGATIONS - A system and a method enable an information analyst to use a stand-alone computer-based investigation application to conduct a disconnected investigation on shared database data in a remote location where network access to a shared data repository of the system might be only periodically available, unreliable, or non-existent. In addition, the system and method enable the disconnected investigation to incrementally incorporate ongoing updates made to the shared repository of data, and to periodically publish interim or final results of the disconnected investigation to the shared data repository. A disconnected investigation can be conducted entirely at the disconnected investigation location without having any network connectivity to the shared repository of data.||05-23-2013|
|20130100134||SIMPLIFYING A POLYGON - Processes, machines, and computer-readable media are provided for expanding and simplifying a polygon or reducing and simplifying a polygon. Polygon expanding or reducing logic receives information that represents a polygon having a set of vertices. The polygon expanding or reducing logic determines another polygon having another set of vertices, such that the other polygon encompasses or is encompassed by the polygon, by determining, for each vertex of the set of vertices, a new set of vertices that are derived from the vertex and are at least a particular distance outside or inside the polygon. The vertex reducing logic determines whether an intermediate vertex is within the particular distance of a proposed segment between two other vertices of the other set of vertices, even though the intermediate vertex is not on the proposed segment, and, if so, removing the intermediate vertex from the other set of vertices.||04-25-2013|
|20100070489||FILTER CHAINS WITH ASSOCIATED VIEWS FOR EXPLORING LARGE DATA SETS - In an embodiment, a filter chain object comprising an association of a starting set of data items and two or more filter links is created and stored in computer memory. Each of the filter links comprises a component object that associates a set operation and a membership criterion. Each of the filter links is associated with a particular filter view among a plurality of filter views. Each particular filter view comprises a graphical representation of a state of applying the membership criterion of the associated filter link to a subset of data resulting from filtering the starting set of data items according to zero or more preceding filter links.||03-18-2010|
|20100070427||DYNAMIC INDEXING - Techniques for dynamic indexing are provided. In one embodiment, first instruments to be included in an index are identified at a first time. The index includes one or more first weights each of which is associated with a different instrument in the first instruments. One or more first time series for the first instruments are determined. Based on the one or more first time series and the one or more first weights, a collective value of the index is tracked as a function of time at least from the first time. At least one of a) the first weights and the first time, and b) the collective value as the function of the time is stored, in a physical storage device.||03-18-2010|
|20100070426||OBJECT MODELING FOR EXPLORING LARGE DATA SETS - An object model is used to facilitate performing financial analysis and that includes certain zero-order objects or building blocks that lend themselves particularly well to doing financial analysis. The object model comprises a universe of data items, relationships between the data items, higher-order objects generated based on one or more data items in the universe, higher-order objects generated based on other objects, and auxiliary entities related to the universe of data items.||03-18-2010|
