(...because topics die slowly here...)

Just finished reading "Extending MFC Applications with the .NET Framework". It rocks - i feel much more confident moving our old app to .NET now. I'm curious though - the first chapter covers a good many pitfalls to avoid when beginning to write mixed-mode code, but what about existing code? Libraries ported through three successive versions of MFC, crumbling COM wrappers, the piles of cruft that accumulate underneath the duct tape holding a large, aging app together? And now with a shiny new .NET front-end... What would i do well to watch for when the lightening strikes, and this monster tries to fight its way off the table?

But in the end, it's all just database access right? And that stuff is just plain boring.
