Computer programming is the process of designing and building an executable computer program for accomplishing a specific computing task. Programming involves tasks such as: analysis, generating algorithms, profiling algorithms' accuracy and resource consumption, and the implementation of algorithms in a chosen programming language (commonly referred to as coding). The source code of a program is written in one or more languages that are intelligible to programmers, rather than machine code, which is directly executed by the central processing unit. The purpose of programming is to find a sequence of instructions that will automate the performance of a task (which can be as complex as an operating system) on a computer, often for solving a given problem. The process of programming thus often requires expertise in several different subjects, including knowledge of the application domain, specialized algorithms, and formal logic.

In one embodiment, a method for developing software includes communicating a specification for the design of a software program to a first plurality of developers, in response to the specification, receiving a design from a subset of the developers to a subset of the developers, facilitating a design review process for scoring the designs, selecting one design based on its score, communicating the selected design to a second plurality of software developers, in response to the design, receiving software programs from a subset of the second plurality of developers, facilitating a software review process for scoring the programs, and selecting one program based on its score. In another embodiment, a method for the distributed development of software includes providing a software development system to a distributed community of developers, the system including software development software that utilizes a structured development methodology, a communication server, and a review board for determining the quality of submitted software; accepting a request to create a software program; and facilitating the development of the program by a subset of the distributed community of developers using the software development system.

Apparatus and method for identifying and simultaneously displaying images of musical notes in music and producing the music

InactiveUS20050190199A1Reduce processor loadGearworksMusical toysDisplay deviceAnalog-to-digital converter
Our invention is an apparatus and method to identify and simultaneously visualize and hear musical notes contained in an analog or digital sound wave. Musical notes are expanded into a language for the eye as well as the ear. An analog-to-digital converter processes an analog sound wave to provide a digital sound wave. Component frequencies of the digital sound waves are identified, filtered and translated to their corresponding musical note and volume. As the original digital sound wave is sent through a digital-to-analog converter and output to an audio device, the identified musical notes are synchronously output to a display device. User-specified parameters, adjustable at any time before, during or after the music-playing process, control frequency filtering, the graphic display of the identified musical notes and the graphical background on which the musical notes are displayed. Users may also utilize existing, or create their own, computer programming code software modules, known as plug-ins, or hardware components, to interface with the invention to extend and control the invention's functionality. Because the synchronous musical note identification and visualization process occurs extremely quickly, the method applies and works in real-time for live music.

Graphical XML programming system and engine where XML processing programs are built and represented in a graphical fashion

A system and methods are provided for operating and building graphically XML processing programs, guiding the user in development of the program, preventing and detecting development errors as the program is being designed, ensuring that the program is valid, i.e. satisfies required input and output constraints at all times, i.e. from the time it is developed to when it is deployed in a production environment, ensuring the automated change management if the internal logic of the Web service, or data sources called by the service or the schema that underlies the Web service are modified. The system includes a graphical XML Programming system where XML processing programs are built and represented in a graphical fashion, a real-time metadata computation and visualization method for each selected execution point in the visual program that provides guided programming, error prevention and detection, and change impact analysis and change management, and, an automated execution path exploration method that enables overall program validation and error identification. The system and methods allow a user to reduce by at least a factor of 2 the costs of development and maintenance of reliable XML processing programs such as Web Services.

Method and system for information retrieval and processing

A computer-implemented system (200) for the retrieval and manipulation of information available via an information network (104) includes an information retrieval and processing component (202). The information retrieval and processing component includes search query means (206) for conducting a search of the information network to obtain references to the information relevant to a search query. The information retrieval and processing component (202) further includes information retrieval means (208) for retrieving information available from sources on the information network, and an information store (210), for storage of retrieved information. The information retrieval and processing component (202) also includes processing means for processing of information retrieved from sources on the information network, and of information stored in the information store, to produce corresponding processed information. A user interface (204) has an array of input/output cells, which is adapted to enable a user to provide input into one or more of said cells for directing operations of the information retrieval and processing component, and to display within one or more of the cells information resulting from such operations. The system thus includes a cell-based user interface, and an intermediate storage layer, which permits a knowledge worker or other user, who may be unfamiliar with sophisticated computer programming languages, to develop automated processes for information transfer and manipulation based on present and historical information available via the information network.

Database access bridge system and process

A system or method enables a two tier computer application to operate in a three tier computer environment without specific programming for the three tier environment. Such a system or method receives a database call at a computer system and maps the database call to a general programming language call of a computer application. The general programming language call is executed to invoke functions of the computer application that correspond to functions of the database call. The general programming language call may be an Enterprise Java Bean (EJB) call. An application server receives the database call and maps the database call to the general programming language call. In response to executing the general programming language call, the application server generates a second database call to the database that may either correspond directly or indirectly to the database call received at the application server. The database calls may both be SQL calls. The general computer programming language may have EJB components that are analyzed to determine the correspondence between the database elements and the elements of the components that access the database elements. Methods of the EJB components may be identified for use in determining the correspondence. The methods may be identified by searching for a method of the form <command prefix>XXX, where the prefix is a “get” or “set” method.

Remote method invocation with secure messaging in a distributed computing environment

A secure interface between clients and services in a distributed computing environment is described. Method gates may provide an interface to remotely invoke functions of a service. A method gate may be generated from an advertisement that may include definitions for one or more messages for remotely invoking functions of the service. A client may generate messages containing representations of method calls. The service may invoke functions that correspond to the set of messages. A method gate on the service may unmarshal the message and invoke the function. The client may receive the results of the function directly. Alternatively, the results may be stored, an advertisement to the results may be provided, and a gate may be generated to access the results. Message gates may perform the sending and receiving of the messages between the client and service. In one embodiment, functions of the service may be computer programming language (e.g. Java) methods. In one embodiment, a message including a representation of a method call may be generated when no actual method call was made. In one embodiment, a method call may be transformed into messages that may be sent to the service; the service may not know that the messages were generated from a method call. In one embodiment, a service may transform messages requesting functions into method calls; the client may not know that the service is invoking methods to perform the functions. A credential may be embedded in messages and used for message authentication on the service.
