I have an established application, written in Clarion 3.1 for DOS which is a kind of a 4gl for DOS. It is a type of code generator and gui programming environment. The application is very stable, I hardly have to change it. However I would like to upgrade the application to be a windows based applicaiton software. So it is compatible with all the windows apis. It has screens, reports, data entry and many custome files. I have the complete source code, but you would have to have your own version of Clarion Dos. I could send the source code, and the application but you would need to convert it to something else. The application has a program tree that emulates the menu system. And there is special logic for calculating bonuses and other issues. I would prefer the program be converted to Visual Basic or Visual C++, because I am not sure Java will run quickly on the older computers. The most important part of the application is the bonus calculation report. There is a complex recursive hierarchy that must be traversed in order to accurately calculate the bonuses. The current program uses looping logic to achieve this goal. This logic would have to be understood by the programmer otherwise they would not be able to come up with the same result. There are about 43-50 screens / reports that drive the application. However most are just minor code table insert / update / delete. But there are some special screens: 1 = Order entry Customers 2 = Order entry for Distributor 3 = Reports that calculate bonus chec 4 = Special programs that allow for batch update of product, distributor and activity information from a delimited or fixed length file.
This software is currently distributed royalty free. Once the application is compiled it cannot rely on any other software being installed. If a client does not have SQL or MSACCESS then the application will not work. You must make sure your solution utilizes a file system or database that can be distributed royalty free and can be used in a product that is sold. I am not interested in any free software foundation tools where I have to expose my source code to the world. Currently the Clarion 3.1 environment provides an executable and files that can be distributed without any royalties or license issues. Do not offer a solution that requires the end user to acquire any other software like MS Access or SQL server. It must be a completely stand alone application that does not require special licences. Except for possible a Visual C++ license to compile and distribute the software. Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done. Complete copyrights to all work purchased. Must create a 100% compatible windows application that is capable of running on all current versions of windows from 95, 98, XP, 2000. The application must function identically to the dos program for all business content. The reports must have the same layout and produce the same results.
Must run on Windows platforms.
