Oracle ODBC Connection & Key Learnings

Blogs, Other Blogs
Using an Oracle database from LabVIEW is quite jargon journey. From Instant-Client to ODBC, OLE DB, SQL Developer etc, difference between ODBC, ODAC, OLE DB, ADO etc, all can lead one to confusion easily. NI has tried to explain well on this document, it's still not very lucid in other sources like stackoverflow. I'm not confronting here to clarify all those. I found some few key learning are worth sharing. Windows has implicit classification of files between 32bit and 64bit. If you create a file using C:\Windows\SysWOW64\cmd.exe, then it creates pure 32-bit file. Look at this link for more details. LabVIEW connects to the database provider purely based on the LabVIEW bitness. If you use 32-bit LabVIEW, then use the 32-bit data provider and UDL file.Never get confused with Oracle…

SVN Externals

Blogs, LabVIEW Blog, Other Blogs
If you are looking to reuse a project which already exists in another project and if you need that new project gets updates of the already existing project then-and-there, there is a very good feature in SVN called as externals to help on this kind of requirements. Advantages You can avoid multiple copies of the same source in SVN/source control repositories. Get updates from the root project as and when there is an update.  So no need to manually copy the project again when there is an update. SVN-logs are maintained for the root project from the new project and hence better historical control. In case you don't need updates from root project, use specific revision to freeze to selective version. How does that works? This can be best explained…

Correlation

Blogs, Electronics Blog, Other Blogs
You may often heard this word "Correlation" if you had some experience in developing a system with reference to other system.  By reference, I mean you might have been asked to develop a production system from an R&D system as a reference.  Or you might have been asked to develop a multi-line production system from the reference of single-line production system as a reference.  Or within an R&D this term could be used to compare the results of similar systems which should produce similar results.  Nevertheless, correlation is not limited to only such scaled or production systems. So what is correlation? Correlation is a systematic approach to compare the two or more similar systems.  The result of that comparison would give details whether all those system produces similar/same results or if…

Vipassana Meditation Experience

Blogs, Consciousness Blog, Other Blogs
Though I know and do some meditation practices now and then, when I saw this TED talk a few years ago, Vipassana was new to me by then.  I was kind of impressed on how the Vipassana meditation has transformed those people.  I was wondering mainly about "Is it possible to do 10 days of meditation?".  "Doesn't my back pains and breaks if I do that?".  All sort of such questions were in me and other questions too.  Why not give it a try?  Obviously, I didn't find 10-day break during those time.  Somehow this Vipassana was running in back of my mind since then to try out at least once.  And I did it in last 10 days! What I can say about it? Nothing much as of now.  I…

A Unique Momento from Tessolve Team..!

Blogs, LabVIEW Blog, Other Blogs
It's very honourable to receive such an unique momento and team congratulations from Tessolve for the such an unique project. For Tessolve in itself this was not a regular project. I was called to develop a test system for calibrating a sensor from IDT.  It's an 8-sites parallel test executor developed with actor-framework in LabVIEW to make it highly scalable in future.  The project in itself is special in a way that water flows through the test system.  Then don't fail to imagine that water flowing in test floor too.!  Yes, literally hit happened and everyone had to ensure all safe ways to safeguard the other testers in test floor. I had great pleasure in architecting this software in LabVIEW, developing myself and getting help from a team of developers to support…

Recover Files Using Window’s “Previous Version” Property

Blogs, LabVIEW Blog, Other Blogs
Have you ever encountered that due to some bug in your software the imporant file has been deleted or overwritten?  May be that file could be important data logged in the production or could be your old source code.  Do you know that windows has some capabilities to recover those missed files? Recently I encountered such issue.  My own holy software which passed through all unit test cases, somehow misbehaved in the production site.  It adds more awkward moment if customer sees that issue and says "OMG..! My data are lost..!  Where is my data?". A quick google search on recovering windows files gave me a relief that Microsoft Windows in itself has some recovery given that if the restore points are configured in that Windows.  Since it's production PC,…

SVN Error – Currently locked by other user

Blogs, Other Blogs
When this error happens in your Tortoise SVN Commit screen as shown below, then it means (I assume) that some time back that user had svn-locked that file and later deleted from SVN by using keep-lock in svn commit window (or in somewhere the keep-lock played badly). How to fix it then? Go to the logs of that folder in which that the file was locked as explained in error message above (in my case, I went to UserAccountAuthentication logs).  Look for the file in one of the recent revision as below, right click and choose "Browse repository". This should bring up the repo version when that file existed in repo.  In the repo browser, right click that error file and choose the "Break Lock".  This should break the lock…
