News editors obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Software applications can be implemented in, among other things, web applications and desktop applications. Typically, web applications are software applications wherein clients using web browsers access servers via the Internet to perform actions such as requesting data, processing data, sending data, displaying data and so forth. To run the web application, users access a uniform resource locator (URL) using a web browser and download any necessary files associated with the web application such as
"Besides simplifying the deployment of software applications, web applications also simplify the maintenance of software applications. Developers are able to make changes to the associated files of the web applications once without needing users to request the updates. Users have the benefit of using the most recent files without having to request updates because web scripts running the web browser may determine changes have been made to certain files and will download the necessary new files. Although web applications simplify the deployment and maintenance of software applications, these advantages may be hindered by security settings of potentials users that may prevent web applications from successfully running on the users' machines."
As a supplement to the background information on this patent, VerticalNews correspondents also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent: "The following presents a simplified summary of the disclosure to provide a basic understanding to the reader. This summary is provided to introduce a selection of concepts in a simplified form that are further described below in the Detailed Description. This summary is not intended to identify key features or essential features of the claimed subject matter, nor is it intended to be used to limit the scope of the claimed subject matter.
"Described herein are implementations for deploying web applications that include detecting and modifying security settings of user computing devices so that users can successfully run the web applications despite certain security measures deployed on the user computing devices. These web applications include one or more components that run in a web browser and include web scripts, Active-X components, .NET components or the like, which can prompt a user to change the user's security settings or automatically change the user's security settings to allow the web application to execute on the user's computer. Further, these web applications may include a proxy application to facilitate communication between the web browser running the web applications and the one or more web application components on the user's computer. As a result, components of the web applications are able to communicate with external applications via the web browser.
"Many of the attendant features will be more readily appreciated as the same becomes better understood by reference to the following detailed description considered in connection with the accompanying drawings."
