The system, method, and program of this invention enables a developer to write a platform independent program that can read, create, modify, delete, and enumerate registry type of information regardless of whether or not a targeted operating system supports a registry or registry equivalent functionality. More specifically, as disclosed herein, there is a global registry object for carrying out, i.e., mapping, registry functions or registry equivalent functions across multiple operating systems. In particular, the global registry is used to map registry equivalent functions in an AIX operating system environment. The global registry object enables a specified ODM file of an AIX operating system to resemble a registry. A key and a subkey representative of a Windows registry are stored in the key1 field of a specified ODM file. Likewise, a value representative of the Windows registry is stored in the key2 field of the ODM file. Furthermore, the global registry object enables the reading, writing, enumerating and deleting of information from any one of a plurality of ODM files.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
