In the past months I worked with RACON Software GmbH. on an architectural design and prototype for a composite smart client based on Composite UI Application Block and Smart Client Software Factory. RACON Software GmbH, a Software house of the Raiffeisen Banking Group in Upper Austria. This paper has now been reviewed by and Eugenio Pace and his team of the Microsoft Patterns & Practices Group of Microsoft Corp. in Redmond and is available as a public download here.
The paper discusses the approach that we have choosen for designing the architecture of a composite bank desktop application for the Raiffeisen banks in Upper Austria. In the meantime we had the chance to validate these concepts with other customers and RACON Software GmbH. is quite far in progress with the bank desktop framework.
Primarily the white paper is split into two parts:
A comprehensive, concentrated version of the architectural part with more focus on the scenario is going to be part of the next issue of the Microsoft Architecture Journal (issue 10) as well.
