Missiles, Money, Cabs
Some time ago I watched Martin Grenell's presentation "How to get your Grandmother to Build Missile Defense Systems", and in it he briefly showcased an application built using the Composite Application Block called CommSee, an internal application written and used by the CommonWealth Bank of Australia. This presentation is downloadable from the PDC 2006 webcast series. [The Composite UI Application Block is a proven framework for creating 'pluggable' applications, based on the MVC/MVP composite pattern].
While I was watching his excellent presentation, I thought it would be interesting to find out more about the design and process behind this application. Well Ron Jacobs has done just that over at Arcast. Nice one, Ron!
