Basically the project can be divided into two parts:
1. Programmer to develop scripts to enable the remote searching using XML feeds from expedia/IAN.com. Following the homepage search, the next page with results will still be hosted on the site and the third page with property details will also stay on our server. Once visitor clicks to book the room, he will be transferred to [url removed, login to view] server to make the reservation. [url removed, login to view] would be processing the payments. So programming will be needed for these three types of pages to fetch/parse the data from xml access.
If possible we would also like to integrate the data from some other sources for maps (google) and weather information (weather channel) on the search results pages.
At this point we are not planning to provide booking facility on our server and therefore programming is needed only to fetch/parse the XML or using the webservices SOAP client.
2. webdesign of the homepage with incorporation of search box and other scripts written by web programmer. Also designing the stylesheet for the two pages following the homepage where the search results and property details would be displayed. Graphics work is NOT needed.
