Can some one explain to me how CAB fits in with UIAB (User Interface Application Block), does it replace it, will it intergrate it?

I am looking into UIAB as a means to rationalise our back office tools, UIAB seems to be offering at the right level for me, giving an architectural system to extend and use.

Does CAB complement this and does it also offer an architectural level system, i.e. will it still allow me to seperate my apps using MVC and extend the various parts of the system as I see fit

(sorry for being a bit vague)

CAB is a .NET 2.0 asset, and the UIP block is a .NET 1.1 asset. We have an updated version of UIP as something we'd like to do soon.

How will the updated version of the UIP affect any applications that have been developed with UIP, will the integration of CAB and UIP affect legacy apps written with UIP?

We haven't started the project, so we don't have any answers to these kinds of questions yet. Sorry. :(

Hmm, my question is similar to the original poster's.

Is CAB for 2.0 whereas UIPAB is for 1.1? Is CAB a replacement for UIPAB or a superset/subset of UIPAB?
If there are fundamental differences, can you highlight some of them?
