National Instruments (NI), has announced the release of LabVIEW 2018 Database Connectivity Toolkit. This Toolkit provides tools for performing common database operations from LabVIEW and connects to databases, such as Microsoft Access, SQL Server, and Oracle.
About LabVIEW Database Connectivity Toolkit. The LabVIEW Database Connectivity Toolkit is a set of easy-to-use tools for quickly connecting to local and remote databases and implementing many common database operations without having to perform structured query language (SQL) programming. It readily connects to popular databases, such as Microsoft Access, SQL Server, and Oracle. If you need advanced database functionality and flexibility, the LabVIEW Database Connectivity Toolkit also offers complete SQL capabilities.
About NI LabView. LabVIEW (Laboratory Virtual Instrument Engineering Workbench) is a graphical programming language that uses icons instead of lines of text to create applications. In contrast to text-based programming languages that use instructions to determine the order of program execution, LabVIEW uses dataflow programming. In data flow programming, the flow of data through the nodes on the block diagram determines the execution order of the VIs and functions. VIs, or virtual instruments, are LabVIEW programs that imitate physical instruments.
In LabVIEW, you build a user interface by using a set of tools and objects. The user interface is known as the front panel. After you build the front panel, you add code using graphical representations of functions to control the front panel objects. You add this graphical code, also known as G code or block diagram code, to the block diagram. The block diagram somewhat resembles a flowchart. The block diagram, front panel, and graphical representations of code compose a VI.
