Turning LabVIEW 2-Style Global to Packed Project Library VI

Hello:

 

I like the idea of Packed Project Library VIs being ‘Precompiled’ and this ‘Fast Loading’. 

Question is: would it be good practice to convert a LabVIEW 2-Style DB Connectivity driver into Packed Project VI?

 

It is being called hundreds of times at different places in the larger software in which this is used.

 

Iternally it maintains the open connection in shift registers.

 

Let me know your advice

 

Thanks!

 

Anthony L.

I don't consider any global resource good practice to begin with 😁.

 

I don't see why housing it in a PPL makes a difference though, esp. if the global is private to the library.
