//
// The ShellApplication class is the entry point for your application. ShellApplication 
// contains the Main method and derives from FormShellApplication base class which is
// provided by the Composite UI Application Block (CAB).
// 
// Note that the RootWorkItem is the default WorkItem provided by CAB.
// 
// It also implements basic exception handling using Enterprise Library Exception
// Handling Application Block.
//
// The shell in this Guidance Package (ShellForm) has a DeckWorkspace called LayoutWorkspace
// The default layout is defined in a separate module called Infrastructure.Layout. This module
// has a usercontorl ShellLayoutView which has a left and right workspace.
//
