  1. I have started exploring VI Tester and it does indeed seem to do what I need (I notice that the testing GUI doesn't work on Mac OS, but the code for running tests automated seems to work on Mac OS). @OliverL To your point I am going to do system level testing to start with but I think I'll do it within the VI Tester framework. It seems I can put whatever code into the test cases I want so there's nothing to stop me from putting code that talks to my running application and has it do large scale testing. After that unit tests could be seperately added in.
  2. We have a fairly large application (5,000+ vi's, 20 years of development). Much like the Software Engineering books promise will happen, adding functionality without breaking something is proving to be almost impossible. We would like to get into automated testing/test driven development and I'm trying to come up with a framework for making that happen. The framework would need to sync to the latest code changes throughout the day and run thousands of test cases and report any failures. Futhermore it would need to do overnight testing of long tests (e.g. performance, memory leak) and proba
  3. Anybody want to buy a last minute ticket to Life is Good Fest with Jack Johnson today?

  4. We are looking for a staff software engineer to join our company in Boston, MA (near downtown). We have a 3000+ vi application that has been in continuous development by multiple software engineers (currently 4 engineers + 1 intern) for 17 years. Every year we release a new version of the software with significant new features. An engineer with our company needs to be more than just a LabVIEW hacker. We need a software engineering that can go into our large application, modify it, sometimes in very fundamental ways, without breaking existing functionality, and have an eye for how their changes
  5. A little rant here, this is something I've been thinking about for awhile and I would like some feedback: I don't recycle. If I did I would put absolutely everything in the recycle bin and I would like to see a civil protest movement to do just that.Why? Because recycling is not something that people should have to think about, and it's too important to leave it to joe six pack. Recycling should not involve average citizens having to figure out whether something should or shouldn't go...

      Any large community must have a common set of rules by which it governs its action (Strictly different from "morals" by the way). Without these rules, we tend towards anarchy. Preventing such anarchy is what allows these large communities to thrive and avoid catastrophic meltdowm (they run smoothly). Having rules without enforcement is nonsensical.

      How large you WANT your community to BE in regard to these rules is a matter for politics. With regard to waste recycling,...

      That's the only thing that I'd agree with. The rest reminds me of Mel Gibson, as William Wallace, saying "Slaves are made in such ways."

      Which would tie in nicely with Scotland trying to separate from the UK.

  6. I'm ok as is Lucie Monroe

  7. Hey I need to talk with some people who don't like Ice in their water for a project I'm doing. So, who, among my friends doesn't like ice in their water?

  8. The cognizant example may be a very good jumping off point for us, great lead!
  9. Hey friends, my alternator just died in brattleboro,vt. :( I'm going to be getting my car fixed at 7am, but till then ill be hanging out. If you have a friend in southern VT with a couch, hook me up. :) thomas 8572367943

  10. Hi, We're about to try to do an ambitious experiment that if it works will drastically change the look and feel of our software. I wanted to see if someone has already done this or if it's been tried before by smarter minds than ours and shown to be un-doable. Our software allows people to create display windows (like graphs and tables) at will that in turn open up in separate windows. We would love to be able to constrain these windows within our program window, bind them to tabs on the main window, do soft-snapping with other windows, allow them to be docked, bind them inside window p
