Hi I would like a product (prototype)that is somehow capable of demonstrating advantage and disadvantage of XML (in relation to e-Commerce). You are fully flexible to shape the product as you like as long as it shows the main pros and cons of XML in regards to today's e-commerce, based on XML Family such as SOAP, UDDI, DTD and WSDL etc.
The possible products could be "prototype" demonstration of exchanging data interoperability using SOAP between 2or3 different databases possibly created in different language, also XML precise search engine capability and ability to create loyal cusomers in various steps of e-commerce to gererate more sales. However, if you have any better idea that will show more capability all in one product then it would be greatly appreciated.
Basically, the Prototype has to have to ability to convince someone that Despite few draw-backs, Yes- XML promise great potential for e-Commerce from various angle.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
Product has to be created either in c# or VB.NET. It would preferable that the product can run on its own without being online, however if it is absolutely essential to be online to demonstrate the extreme capability of XML, let me know I will have to think other possible option which it seems, should not be big problem.
I have .NET and CGI enabled web space including SQL & MySql database, should it be required to enhance this product, I will disclose necessary details upon request.
