Abstract: front page image
(EN)An availability system used for a travel planning system is described. The system includes a cache having entries of availability information of seats for a mode of transportation and a cache manager that manages entry information in the cache so that information in the cache is correct, current, complete, or otherwise as useful as possible. The cache manager determines when a stored answer is stale and, if a stored answer is stale, sends an availability query to a source of availability information.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système de disponibilité mis en application dans le domaine de la planification de voyages. Ce système comporte une antémémoire possédant des entrées d'informations de disponibilité de sièges pour un mode de transport et un gestionnaire d'antémémoire gérant les informations d'entrée dans l'antémémoire, de sorte que ces informations sont correctes, actualisées, complètes et aussi détaillées que possible. Le gestionnaire d'antémémoire détermine à quel moment une réponse mémorisée est en attente et, dans ce cas, envoie une demande de disponibilité à une source d'informations de disponibilité.
