A Patent on Continuations?
> Patent-pending technology allows ATCT to be the only framework that
> makes it possible for asynchronous long-running process flows to be
> expressed and implemented in a sequential fashion, using pure Java
> language. By implementing Execution Context Reification technology,
> ATCT allows defining asynchronous logic on the API level. It supports
> all the techniques and tools of traditional sequential programming
> into the realm of asynchronous systems.
> Please, please, do not patent continuations. <snip>
Given the Patent and Trademark Office's tendency to miss prior art
in the CS disciplines and to issue overly broad patents, this list
should be *very* concerned if there really is a patent on continuations
in the pipeline.
