A better, more current list is hosted at the LabVIEW Wiki.
Overview of several LabView-Frameworks to get a better understanding of the different pros and cons.
|Name||Purpose / Description||Pros||Cons|
|Delacor Queued Message Handler (DQMH)||Based on NI QMH, scripting||Open, mature, good documentation, huge community|
|Actor Framework||Open and popular framework by NI||Open, well tested, good documentation||relatively complicated, no RT|
|Workers for LabVIEW||Lightweight, look & feel like NI QMH, scripting||Little overhead, extended documentation||rather new, small community|
|DCAF||Distributed Control and Automation Framework||Configuration-based workflow, networking||?|
|ALOHA||Simple framework with GUI management||KISS approach, open source||?|
|Stream||New publisher / subscriber based framework||Open source, new modern approach, (network transparent)||few infos & doku|
|Featherweight||Actor based applications (not related to NI Actor Framework)||collection of libraries, No dependencies||discontinued|
