    [LVTN] Messenger Library

    View File Messenger Library An extensive library for passing messages between parallel processes. Generalizes the communication method, allowing the message sender to use the method provided by the receiver. Supported communication methods include wrappings of simple queues, user events, and notifiers, as well a more complex channels such as a TCP server and client. In addition, one can configure simple forwarding addresses (“Observers"), which can send messages to multiple destinations, optionally with modifications such as adding a prefix to the message label, relabelling, or substituting a different message. Communication patterns supported include request-reply (asynchronous or synchronous), where the reply is sent to a "reply address" attached to the request, and register-notify, where one process sends a registration message to another in order to subscribe to a series of updates. Also supports scatter-gather, the gathering of replies from multiple senders into an array of messages. An option framework for dynamically-launched VI "actors" is also provided, including example templates, which can be accessed via the Tools menu (from an open Project, select Tools>>Messenger Library>>Create Actor from Template..). An "Actor Manager" debug tool is also installed under the Tools menu. Please note that this package has nothing directly to do with the NI Actor Framework (other than both packages are influenced by the Actor Model). ***Introductory Videos are on a YouTube channel.*** Original conversation on this work is here. Now hosted on the LabVIEW Tools Network (but note that the latest version will often be on LAVA) ***NOTE: latest versions require VIPM 2017 or later to install.*** Submitter drjdpowell Submitted 11/27/2012 Category LabVIEW Tools Network Certified LabVIEW Version

  3. I've started to make some instructional videos on YouTube for my Messenger Library. I was inspired by Delacor's nice videos on their new DQMH framework and also by Steve Watts' CSLUG channel. Any feedback appreciated. James
  4. I’m hoping to add some sample projects to my “Messenging” package, and I thought it would be easy and instructive to rework one of NI’s templates, “Continuous Measurement and Logging”, as it is already somewhat actor-like with three communicating modules. Attached is a (back-saved for 2011) copy of the NI project, with my version included (run “Main.vi” for the original, “Main.lvclass:Actor.vi” for my version). I kept the basic functionality the same, but couldn’t resist changing some of the UI (in the old code, “Main” controls the UI; in the new code, published state messages from the Acquisition and Logging Actors set the UI). Continuous Measurment and Logging with Messenging.zip Any comments appreciated. Is this example less clear than the NI original? Why? How could I improve it? In particular, is code like this (the most complicated interaction, I think) understandable without heavy documentation? It’s a “Start Logger, then Start Acquisition, then Unset the Busy Cursor” three-actor chain message: I’m thinking of making a “Send Chain Message” subVI (that accepts arrays of addresses and message labels) to replace the above code. — James
