This is to solicit recommendations on how my project (later) will be posted for bid. I have an application I would like developed but I'm not sure if what I want to do is "do-able". I would like to solicit recommendations on the application's producability and benefits options.
I want to have a small application coded that will work cross-platform on a PDA running palmOS or PocketPC. I would like to know if the same application "code" can be executed on a windows PC so the application is cross-platform. It is not a huge project. All I want to do is make an application that is like a database with a very nice graphical interface but SIMPLE. On the "backend" I would enter conditions that have a unique identifier number assigned to them (so 2 fields there?) and when I enter these "conditions" into the database, another field will specifiy which "application" is available to satisfy the particular condition.
On the user interface, they will enter a condition or conditions and select an "execute" or "search" button, and the application will generate a list of "applications" that would address the condition(s) entered. In cases where the user has entered multiple conditions, the program would rank the results by which applications satisfied the most conditions. I hope this is not too vague.
The application would have to be able to be easily "upgraded" as new condition rules are released and the relationships would change. I would only invision a few "updates" needed per year. Possibly even by automatic update feature that will always link to a dedicated url that contains the update? Thanks in advance for your help and advice.
