Does someone already tried to access a CORBA server from a VI in Labview?


Best regards,

There's no built-in CORBA client/server support with the UN*X versions of
LabVIEW, and I'm pretty sure that CORBA support is not high on the list of
features for the developers to add. I've never seen much evidence (aside from very occasional inquiries such as yours) that there's a lot of demand out there.

What's the application that you want to communicate with? Are there other communication methods (File I/O, TCP/IP) that might be suitable?

I'm also interested in CORBA - LabVIEW communication. I have been working with LabVIEW for many years. Right now I'm starting to work in a project where CORBA is used for inter-process communication. It would be very nice if I could use LabVIEW to communicate with these other processes through CORBA.

I'm novice in CORBA and just learning it's concept, but may be my ideas
are not a so stupid.

1.NI has DataSocket JavaBean add-on for Measurement Studio. These beans
will allow you to establish DataSocket communication between Java
applet/EJB etc and LabVIEW. The rest is as usually in any Java CORBBA
platform.

2. There is tools (java ones), that makes ActiveX
from Java beans. The
rest is simple.

Cheers to Java guru's

Sergey,
Do you mean that it would be easy to implement a NI-DataSocket/CORBA-server bridge in Java ?
Do you think there is a way to access a CORBA server "directly" from a VI ?
Thanks, Nicolas.

Wow these are old posts.  Hopefully someone has forged this river successfully before me.  Can I get an update on what you learned or accomplished?

If anybody is reading this ancient thread, you should seriously consider looking into Google's Protobuf and gRPC rather than Corba/IDL.  I have seen that some people have created some LabVIEW tools for protobuf messaging. (Sorry this is non-specific)
