Currently we have a flash application built using AS2. The application itself is using flash communication server for streaming / audio / chat. It is a multi-client application.
We have a .net website with a MS SQL Server 2005 database.
We have two routes to take with this project and I would like you to submit a bid for both.
1 - Take the current application and integrate it with the .net website using flash remoting, also authentication and authorization should go across apps. Currently the data in the flash app is being populated using static xml files, this should ultimately be coming from the database. We would like to keep the budget for this option under 3,500.
2 - Rebuild the application using flex and AS3 and flash communication server. If this option is chosen there are some features we would like to add. Please provide links to your portfolio of sample flex applications. (Our "CAP" budget for this is 8,000) as we do not have any more money then that, however, if it runs over your estimation we can formulate an agreement to make payment once the product goes live and we are brining in income from sales (which we will).
For option 2,
-the data will also be coming from the MS SQL database.
-You will have to handle authentication/authorization from the .net to flex
-Come up with a liquid flawless design in flex
-use Flash Communication Server 2.0 (video, audio, chat)
-use Actionscript 3.0
-use Flash Remoting (not sure which software we would use here, flouring, weborb, etc.?)
-possibly use encoding server for the web cam video streaming
the ability to search for logged in clients and invite them to chat.
all chat/video/audio transcripts are to be saved
Please be well adept in programming with the above technologies, I am a developer myself and have worked with offshore companies before, thus I can tell if you do not have experience with these technologies. Besides, you will not want to get over your heads with this project.
