Litware HR - A Sample SaaS Application

It sure feels like a long timeago since I first started working on this project.I'm very happyto announce that the sample SaaS applicationhas finally arrived!

Litware HR is a sample SaaS application that is implemented with current generation of application platform technology: .NET framework 3.0, SQL server 2005, Windows server 2003 and ADAM.
