A CP member's post about the job market triggered a related question for me. We moved to Arizona to care for her ailing mother 10 years ago. We needed something we could both do at home while being available for medical care, so we opened an Internet store. My mother-in-law has since passed on and now I'm looking for other work.

Meanwhile ...

To streamline the business, I wrote software to handle back-end processes like shipping, inventory, and catalog management. I'm considering productizing some of it. For one example, I wrote a file open/save dialog that emulates the Windows dialog but handles protocols like FTP and RSS using plug-ins.

Is there a viable market for such components nowadays? How does one get started? Has anyone on Code Project done this?
