20130104148AMBIENT STATE FOR ASYNCHRONOUS METHODS - A method of providing asynchronous programming support at run time for scope-based ambient state at a method call is disclosed. In response to the method call, an asynchronous method stack frame is created along with ambient state for the asynchronous method call. In one example of the method, a current frame of a method stack is captured. A new frame is instantiated by setting a previous reference of the new frame to the current frame and moving data from the previous frame into the current frame. One example of instantiating the new frame includes pushing the current frame onto the stack. In another example, the new frame is lazily created when changes have been made. A state machine used to transform the synchronously-created method into an asynchronous method is moved from a current state to a next state. The captured frame is restored.04-25-2013
20130160031HARDWARE COMPUTING SYSTEM WITH SOFTWARE MEDIATION AND METHOD OF OPERATION THEREOF - A method of operation of a hardware computing system includes: generating a command stream by a general purpose central processing unit; and receiving, by an application manager, the command stream for executing a command by a programmable execution engine and providing a status through a command execution interface to the general purpose central processing unit for the command from the command stream.06-20-2013
20130185740INFORMATION PROCESSING APPARATUS, IC CHIP, INFORMATION PROCESSING METHOD, PROGRAM, AND INFORMATION PROCESSING SYSTEM - There is provided an information processing apparatus, including a multi-platform capable of managing a plurality of applications, and an operating system which operates on the multi-platform, and is capable of being activated by a command of the multi-platform.07-18-2013
20130191853PROGRAM EXECUTION METHOD AND PROGRAM EXECUTION APPARATUS - In a terminal apparatus including a first application that runs on first middleware and a second application that runs on second middleware and performs management of billing, and so on, the second application receives an instruction to execute the first application, obtains billing information of the first application and judges whether or not the first application can be executed, and activates the first application through the second middleware and the first middleware when judging that the execution is possible.07-25-2013
20130212601METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR MAINTAINING GAME FUNCTIONALITY FOR A PLURALITY OF GAME INSTANCES RUNNING ON A COMPUTER SYSTEM - A container layer for allowing a plurality of game instances running on an operating system to maintain full game functionality is configured to intercept a communication from a game instance of the plurality of game instances to the operating system and provide an appropriate response to the intercepted communication.08-15-2013
