You haven't seen the power of IJW then. I modified a program to use SQL server to store it's data as blobs, with only minor changes... And of course the best part, is that with MSDE I could then have it mirror the database to another machine, and I had instant disaster recovery capabilities.

The real power is in the ease of use of the framework compared to the disaster that is MFC.

Just compare .net remoting to DCOM. It's brilliant.
