Debt Management System released

Its been a few months since my last blog, our dev team has been very busy rolling out new changes to the Genesis Smart Client Framework (will be on codeplex soon, look out for release 1.51.1024.0) and to an existing system that we had.

The existing system is a Debt Counselling system that helps alleviate the financial burden on debtors and by paying creditors in a predictable and reliable fashion. The system was initially developed for Voluntary Distribution, however over time has grown and now supports Garnish Order Alleviation, Judgement Order Rescision and the National Credit Act of South Africa (

The Hilts Debt Counselling system ( runs on the Genesis Smart Client Framework as a platform to deliver an always-up-to-date application experience to our users.

Added application template to the Genesis Smart Client Framework

I've just released a new version of the source code on Code Plex.

This release contains a template project and the database configuration for the minimum implementation required for a C# hosted application that will run in the Smart Client application.

New article published

A new article has been published in the series of articles on Code Project on my C# Smart Client.

This article covers the management of the Genesis Smart Client Framework. It deals with the configuration of the Meta-Data, user interface and application security. It also covers the deployment process for the Smart Client system in a development and production environment.

Added new samples for the Genesis Smart Client Framework

The new sample is a custom Smart Client application that connects to the Genesis Smart Client Framework back-end. This custom Smart Client application does not use any 3rd party libraries for any part of the user interface and demonstrates how to load existing applications' user interfaces into different Smart Client applications.
