We need a solution by using open source [url removed, login to view] (see link below) - that runs on a webserver (LAMP) and is able to - read data (mainly text, images. Video and other media must be possible also) from a mySQL database - fill this data into several different flash (swf) templates - combine the several final flash files into 1 big flash file, so that each flash (=chapter) is visible a) for a predefined number of seconds or b) each chapter is shown when the user presses a certain key on the keyboard. - the process of the generation of flash files is completely databased: Flash-templates can have up to 5 pages, each with one place holder for text, picture and video. Within each template the exchange of texts and images is done with a transition effect, like fading or venetian blind effect. - changes from one template to another are done also with effects. - the solution must be able do do the assembly of the flash files automatically at certain intervals and/or by being triggered via php or cron-job. - The process of generation: 1. The mySQL database consists of one table with the following entries: customer-id | Password | Template-filename | Text1 | Text2 | Text3 | Text4 | Text5 | Image1 | Image2 | Image3 | Image4 | Image5 | Video1 | Video2 | Video3 | Video4 | Video5 The database entries images and videos are filenames. 2. The application ist started with customer-id and password and must select all rows with this customer-id and pw. It reads the template-filename, loads the template flash-file and replaces the placeholders of the flash template with text and images or videos files. 3. Now, the template-filename from the next matched database row is chosen and processed as well. 4. When all rows and flash files are completed, the application must combine the single flashs into one big static flash file, and save it as customer-id.swf. Important: All data must be included in the flash-file (.swf) NOT dynamically loaded!
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form 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).
4) The seller agrees to upload all deliverables to the site by the deadline or they would forfeit the project.
LAMP Webserver Before bidding: It is necessary that you download and look at [url removed, login to view] and try out / evaluate this software. Also, we ask for references for similar projects involving flash and databases that the coder has done in the past, before we make our decision. Timeline: project deadline is february 25th 2005. We provide a webserver and install software on coder's demand.
