News editors obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "This invention relates to providing communication between isolated application components in a browser based environment.
"A new generation of HTML5 capable browsers are shifting application publishing from a traditional stand-alone desktop application model to a web-based model where applications exist within their client browser environments. As browser based client applications attempt to provide the same service and usability that stand-alone desktop applications do, software developers have to manage the technical constraints of operating within a browser and not having access to operating system level resources that are available to stand-alone software environments. This fundamental difference in resource availability is forcing a shift in how client-side applications are architected within browser based environments. In addition, features of browser-based applications need to be upgraded while already deployed on a broad spectrum of client devices. Thus, architectures and techniques that enable discrete components of a deployed browser-based application to be updated separately are desirable to creating a stable browser-based application."
As a supplement to the background information on this patent application, VerticalNews correspondents also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "Embodiments of the invention provide an application gateway to enable controlled communication between application components within a browser based environment while maintaining a level of isolation of the individual application components. A dispatching API wrapper and a listening API wrapper are registered for each of a plurality of application components. The registered API wrappers are used to send and receive communications from the associated application components. For example, a first application component can dispatch an action to a second application component via the first application component's dispatching API wrapper. The second application component can receive the action via the second application component's listening API wrapper. As another example, a first application component can dispatch an event that broadcasts a state to other application components via the first application component's dispatching API wrapper. A listening API wrapper of at least one other application component receives the state and may perform other functions dependent on the state.
"The features and advantages described in this summary and the following detailed description are not all-inclusive. Many additional features and advantages will be apparent to one of ordinary skill in the art in view of the drawings, specification, and claims hereof.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
"FIG. 1 illustrates a block diagram of a computing environment of an application gateway, in accordance with an embodiment of the invention.
"FIG. 2 is an illustration of communications between application components using an application gateway, in accordance with an embodiment of the invention.
