Abstract

A Method and System to Correlate, Delivery and Present Messages Disclosed is a method and system to correlate related messages and present them at proper time, in proper form to receivers associatively. The system consists of sender(s), receiver(s) and transmission infrastructure. The sender, which does business service, is responsible for preparing and sending PLAN and messages to receiver following the business logic flow. The receiver is responsible for receiving and presenting PLAN and messages. Transmission infrastructure is responsible for buffering PLAN and messages and deliver them to target device(s) according to preset policy or requests of the sender and receiver. The infrastructure also contains components that get status of users (receiver and sender, actively or passively) in profile so to deliver PLAN and messages in proper form, at proper time to proper device. Sender and receiver are logical function name, a real apparatus can be a receiver and a sender. A PLAN describes the overview of inherently related messages and individual message that would follow up. The format of PLAN and message are formally defined so the receiver and transmission infrastructure can process them automatically. The messages also include information related to the PLAN so receiver can automatically associate them with PLAN and other messages, and make proper presentation or processing.

      A Method and System to Correlate, Delivery and Present
Messages

    Disclosed is a method and system to
correlate related messages and present
them at proper time, in proper form to
receivers associatively.

    The system consists of sender(s),
receiver(s) and transmission
infrastructure. The sender, which does
business service, is responsible for
preparing and sending PLAN and messages to
receiver following the business logic
flow. The receiver is responsible for
receiving and presenting PLAN and
messages. Transmission infrastructure is
responsible for buffering PLAN and
messages and deliver them to target
device(s) according to preset policy or
requests of the sender and receiver. The
infrastructure also contains components
that get status of users (receiver and
sender, actively or passively) in profile
so to deliver PLAN and messages in proper
form, at proper time to proper device.
Sender and receiver are logical function
name, a real apparatus can be a receiver
and a sender.

    A PLAN describes the overview of
inherently related messages and individual
message that would follow up. The format
of PLAN and message are formally defined
so the receiver and transmission
infrastructure can process them
automatically. The messages also include
information related to the PLAN so
receiver can automatically associate them
with PLAN and other messages, and make
proper presentation or processing.
