Patent number 8560526 is assigned to
The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Databases are computerized information storage and retrieval systems. A relational database management system is a computer database management system (DBMS) that uses relational techniques for storing and retrieving data. An object-oriented programming database is a database that is congruent with the data defined in object classes and subclasses.
"Regardless of the particular architecture, a requesting entity (e.g., an application or the operating system) in a DBMS requests access to a specified database by issuing a database access request. Such requests may include, for instance, simple catalog lookup requests or transactions and combinations of transactions that operate to read, change and add specified records in the database. These requests are often made using high-level query languages such as Structured Query Language (SQL). Upon receiving such a request, the DBMS may execute the request against a corresponding database, and return any result of the execution to the requesting entity."
In addition to the background information obtained for this patent, VerticalNews journalists also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent: "Embodiments of the invention provide a method, system and computer program product for performing an operation that includes receiving streaming data to be processed by a stream application comprising a plurality of processing elements. Each processing element includes one or more operators that are contained within a single process. The streaming data includes a plurality of tuples. The operation also includes identifying at least one tuple to be processed by at least one processing element of the stream application. The operation also includes determining a maximum duration for which the at least one processing element is allowed to process the at least one tuple. The operation also includes determining an estimated duration for which the at least one processing element is likely to process the at least one tuple. The operation also includes managing processing of the at least one tuple, based on a comparison between the maximum duration and the estimated duration."
