Title
(EN) SERVER FOR ENABLING THE AUTOMATIC INSERTION OF DATA INTO ELECTRONIC FORMS ON A USER COMPUTER
(FR) SERVEUR PERMETTANT L'INTRODUCTION AUTOMATIQUE DE DONNEES DANS DES FORMULAIRES ELECTRONIQUES D'ORDINATEUR D'UTILISATEUR
Abstract
(EN)
Apparatus, methods, and computer program products are disclosed for constructing and transmitting an executable software module on a personal information server to a remote computer. The software module is constructed such that once received by a browser displaying a form, it is executed and user data is automatically inserted into an electronic form. The software module contains field names from a downloaded form and matching data items which are inserted into the form on the remote user computer. A method for constructing a shippable software module on a personal information server suitable for execution on a remote computer for inserting data strings into an electronic form is described. A form mapping containing a set of associations between fields in the electronic form ('non-standard fields') and pre-named fields ('standard fields') on the personal information server is retrieved. Each mapping is associated with a registered electronic form. A raw data file containing data strings, each data string corresponding to a pre-named field is retrieved. Each raw data file is associated with a registered user. The form mapping is utilized to attach a data string to the field in the electronic form where the pre-named field and the field in the electronic form have been previously matched or mapped.

L'invention concerne un appareil, des procédés et des produits de programme informatique servant à construire un module de logiciel exécutable sur un serveur d'informations personnelles et à le transmettre à un ordinateur à distance. Le module de logiciel est conçu de telle sorte qu'une fois reçu par un navigateur affichant un formulaire, il est exécuté et des données d'utilisateur sont automatiquement introduites dans un formulaire électronique. Le module de logiciel contient des noms de champs provenant d'un formulaire téléchargé, et des éléments de données correspondants qui sont introduits dans le formulaire situé dans l'ordinateur d'utilisateur à distance. L'invention concerne un procédé servant à construire, sur un serveur d'informations personnelles, un module de logiciel expédiable et pouvant être exécuté par un ordinateur à distance pour introduire des chaînes de données dans un formulaire électronique. Un mappage de formulaire contenant un ensemble d'associations entre des champs du formulaire électronique ('champs non standard') et des champs désignés préalablement ('champs standard') est récupéré au serveur d'informations personnelles. Chaque mappage est associé à un formulaire électronique enregistré. Un fichier de données brutes contenant des chaînes de données est récupéré, chaque chaîne de données correspondant à un champ désigné préalablement. Chaque fichier de données brutes est associé à un utilisateur enregistré. On utilise le mappage de formulaire pour appliquer une chaîne de données au champ du formulaire électronique là où le champ désigné préalablement et le champ du formulaire électronique ont pu être appariés ou mappés.
