Abstract

This article describes a method for efficiently searching window c for application specific data with a minimal effort necessary to execute the search. Multilayered Window Hierarchical Ownership is achieved by imposing artificial parentage and ownership hierarchies on the window chains in order to encapsulate the domain of the search. This search encapsulation intelligently localizes the area of the search to only those chains where application data actually resides, eliminating windows and subsequent chains where searching is not required.
