I need a basic windows executable app (actually, it would be even better if it were usable in Linux too, but Windows only is fine).
The interface is just going to have a login and password to connect to a remote MySQL database. There will be a checkbox to save the login credentials for future use.
Once connected, it will fetch all the data from the MySQL database. Don't worry about the exact details... I can write the query for this... I mostly just need you to get it connected to the mysql server. OPTIONAL #1: To edit the content that is being displayed and a button to update the server. OPTION #2: To print off the displayed data.
IMPORTANT: I need the source files so that I can edit everything. So you MUST let me know which language / interface / tools you plan on using. Currently, I'm messing around with Visual Studio 2010, but I'm open to anything right now. Note: I run both Linux and Windows, and I'm diving into GUI-based application development.
My general AREAS OF INTEREST: appointment calendar, remote database connectivity, interface for COM port control (electronics / robotics), and credit card submission interface for PayPal Virtual Terminal. So whatever development environment you choose to work with... let me know. I am pretty new to working with compiled application development, so I'm going to study and research the language(s)/IDEs/dbs/etc. that you recommend. (Got suggestions any suggestions for which technologies would be ideal for those listed items of interest?)
Additionally, I would like to have flexibility to be able to easily edit the source code for these projects and recompile the apps as needed. I'd prefer not to have a crap ton of file dependencies or to have various running services in the background (WAMP/LAMP/etc.). The more portable / cross-platform friendly the application the better. Windows-based GUI is the primary focus, but Linux compatibility is nice too.
I may choose multiple bidders just for providing information... you don't have to do the project(s) to win... I am paying for good, constructive information. ;)
Any and all suggestions are welcome!!!
