Title (EN) MANAGING APPLICATION STATES IN AN INTERACTIVE MEDIA ENVIRONMENT
(FR) GESTION D'ETATS D'APPLICATIONS DANS UN ENVIRONNEMENT MEDIA INTERACTIF
Abstract:
(EN) Applications are managed in an interactive media environment by the creation of a logical model for the lifetime of an application. The model is applicable to concurrently and/or consecutively running applications and governs the creation of applications, manipulation of applications by other applications, resource consumption, visibility of an application to a user, and application shutdown in the interactive media environment using the construct of application 'state' (700). A set of Booleans flags is utilized and unique combinations of elements in the Boolean flag set define a plurality of application states (700).
(FR) Selon cette invention, des applications sont gérées dans un environnement média interactif par création d'un modèle logique pour la durée de vie d'une application. Ce modèle peut être appliqué à des applications exécutées simultanément et/ou consécutivement et commande la création d'applications, la manipulation d'applications par d'autres applications, la consommation de ressources, la visibilité d'une application pour un utilisateur et l'arrêt de l'application dans l'environnement média interactif au moyen de la construction d'un 'état' d'applications (700). Un ensemble de drapeaux boléens est utilisé et des combinaisons uniques d'éléments dans l'ensemble de drapeaux boléens définissent plusieurs états d'applications (700).
