PI-SDK Deprecation and PI-ACE

Question asked by TimCarmichael Champion on Jun 24, 2015

Since the PI-SDK is moving towards a deprecated state, it would seem there are implications for development of PI-ACE modules.

PI-ACE uses the module database to load PI points, properties, etc which we currently access via the PI-SDK.

So, if we move to using the AF-SDK instead of the PI-SDK, is there a method to access the module database from AF or should we rethink how we access data?

I have an application that I am actively developing that loads the bulk of the data from an AF table, however, configuration data (AF server name, AF database, AF table name, AF query qualifier) are loaded from the module database.

This could just as easily be put into an application .config file, but I'd like to use the 'preferred method' as defined by OSISoft.

 

So... how should we proceed?
