This is a serious project and we'll pay well. We need someone to develop a KaZaA/Limewire-like application written in Java harnassing the power of BitTorrent.
UPDATE: We would also like gIFT to be built into the client, with the FastTrack portion turned off. More Info: [url removed, login to view]
The search function will be powered by an in-house server system already in use by a torrent search site that we run. The client will connect to our servers and receive results from our network. The data will be transferred back and forth from our server-farm via HTTP.
Overall, the program should be a stripped-down replica of Azureus (minus the built-in tracker) with a search function built-in and user friendly interface. It will also have a welcome page (integrated web browser minus the address bar) and a 468x60 pixel advertising block (also a borderless web browser... if it's possible to do so) that is well fitted into the UI.
We will design the user interface and provide a mock-up to the coder as soon as possible.
All graphics will be provided for implementation as soon as possible.
It is expected that the hired coder will stay in touch with us until the job is complete. All code becomes our property on delivery and we reserve all rights. The coder is expected to discard all coded material from their machine, access, and possession. 1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.

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.
