The project I am working on now is pretty tough. Was wondering about some other projects that others here have worked on that were ultimately successful?

This project I am working on involves taking a C# library running on one server type machine, and interfacing it with the Micros ISLs for the Micros POS. It communicates with the C# server library using WCF (which I had not used before). Of course, Micros uses native DLLs so I had to write C++/CLI wrappers for everything else too. In addition, this C# library I wrote has to load an embedded system and put the Micros sales into our web server.

It is going to work, as I prototyped it a while ago, but now I am deep in the muck of implementation.....

I will get quite a bit of personal satisfaction when this project is working, especially since my company has paid for 2 different implementations of POS software that ultimately did not work and cost a small fortune.
