Please bid the rate you will charge us to work 100 hours during the next 1 to 2 months. Also, please provide us with samples of your Java source code.
We need to you create a Java ME (formerly J2ME) GPS application that we estimate will take you approximately 100 hours. We have not created all of the specifications in advance. Instead, we plan to use Agile Development [url removed, login to view] Therefore, we do not plan to ask you to complete one 100 hour project. Instead we plan to ask you to complete, say, twenty projects that will take you from, say, 2 to 10 hours each.
All deliverables will be considered “work made for hire” under U.S. Copyright law. You will give us exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased.
To give you an idea of what kind of work you would be doing, here is the first project which is very simple. However, you are not bidding on the project below. The project below is intended solely to give you an idea of what type of project you will be working on.
You will supply me with a Java ME application (a JAD and a JAR file) which I will attempt to load with a USB cable onto a Motorola i88s phone. This is an old phone running MIDP 1.0. I have uploaded the "i88s_Developer_Guide.pdf" along with this advertisement.
If I successfully load the Java ME application you supply me with onto the i88s phone then I will attempt to run your application. If I successfully run your application and if your application successfully finds the phone's location then I would see the following information display on the screen of the phone...
date, time, latitude, longitude, and speed
For example, if the phone were at latitude 32.814917 and longitude [url removed, login to view] on May 17, 2008 at 8:30am and if at that time the phone were traveling at 6 miles per hour (the speed should be displayed in miles/hour not kilometers/hour) I would see the following displayed on the screen...
0805170830,32.814917,[url removed, login to view],6
In the example above...
0805170830= 8:30am on May 17, 2008
and the 6 at the end indicates the phone was traveling at 6 miles per hour (not kilometers per hour but rather miles per hour).
