4-5? items of functionality to be provided on this round of application development on top of [url removed, login to view] --
1. web front end application which works in both IE? and Firefox to allow uploading of Word and pdf document types? of size up to 15MB.
2. Multi-client connections must be supported, and must have no performance issues with up to 10-15 concurrent connection uploads
3. Word document conversion to PDF
4. PDF to XML conversion (this component is available on web for free, to integrate, or if you'd like to write one that is fine also)
5. Salesforce storage on their Database storage of documents as PDF (and storage of accompanying XML document for searching).
Ultimately, this application must demonstrate a solid performancesolution to the following scenario: I am at my laptop (on IE or Firefox), and I upload several word documents (or pdf docs).? The database stores these both in pdf and xml format, so that I can then search these pdf documents using the XML schema on a few fields (like salesman or date).
The next assignment will be to extend the number of schema validation on a few fields within the Word or PDF documents - such that we can create some schema in the XML, so that search and retrieval is faster and more meaningful.
