Hands-on Lab Drives JNetDirect to 64 Bits
JNetDirect is an expert software component company that provides data access, security and delivery to customers with growing business requirements.

If you're interested in seeing more stories like this be sure to visit the Microsoft Customer Evidence site. Here's a list of the case studies related specifically to Visual C++. I've been meeting with some of the guys that run this site and I've made some suggestions around adding some more code to these case studies and maybe eventually creating developer papers associated with these stories. I'll let you know how that goes as we move forward.
