Blogs
I never knew Wikipedia was so much socially contributed encyclopedia. I was looking for key missing info in the wiki for CAN-FD Transfer Protocol (TP) header ?. Though it's very technical which no-one usually turns to Wiki for the help, yet I found another very technical article about CAN bus Transfer Protocol (TP) which is as technical as ISO standard itself. To my surprise, Wiki had such unexpected technical information for one but not the other. Later when I found the information for CANFD TP ?, I thought it's a good idea to ask the responsible person to add it to the Wiki page. Amazingly then I came to know the real workflow of the wiki as, Wikipedia is socially contributed and there is no one single ownership of any…

TestStand + SVN Diff Configuration

Blogs, LabVIEW Blog
When you're extensively working in TestStand with multiple developers, you could easily end up in the need of merging the different sequences and TestStand File Diff and Merge Utility comes in handy.

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…
