        BNA Software had an estate tax planning application written in Visual Basic and QuickBasic that was becoming difficult to maintain. After realizing that the old, unstructured code would not best serve their development needs even after an automated conversion to the .NET Framework, BNA Software chose to rewrite the application as a Smart Client, using Microsoft’s Smart Client Software Factory and Composite UI Application Block. On a very tight schedule, the BNA Software team was able to restructure the application, adapt the calculations to the new tax codes, add the desired new features, and deliver a high-quality product dynamic enough to support three types of customers and satisfy internal developer and marketing needs.
