Migrating a Mature Application and Plugin Infrastructure to an Architecture Based on PPL by Justin Young, PhD.

LabVIEW’s Packed Project Libraries (PPLs) offer several advantages for users and developers. As this build technology has matured, several presentations and white papers on the topic have focused on using PPLs to create plugin infrastructures. However, their focus is on new development and prototypes/demonstrations. Aside from a few NI/LAVA board posts, little information is available on how strategies and pitfalls related to migrating mature applications with modular plugin-based design. Here we discuss our experience in doing such a migration including: motivations, key challenges, lessons learned, and outcomes – all of the ingredients needed to answer the question: “Was it worth it?” We will conclude the session with a Q&A / Discussion on related user experiences including best practices on this topic.
