Convert old VB application to Java (preferably Eclipse RCP)

***Experienced Eclipse RCP application developer needed for short project***

Many years ago I developed some gardening software in Visual Basic. I still sell that software, but it has become somewhat antiquated over the years, and sales are way down. You can see the current software on my website at:

In the past few years I have hired a couple of freelance developers (university students) to design the software again from scratch, but none of them have been able to finish the project, but I do have their Eclipse files to start from.

There is some additional functionality I have in mind as well that I can discuss with you in more detail.

I'm thinking to continue in Eclipse because I would like the new software to be cross-platform, i.e., able to run on both Windows and Mac systems. Stage two would be to port it to android / iphone for tablet and phone. But that's down the road, maybe later this year.

For me to hire you, you MUST have prior experience developing a complete application in Eclipse RCP, including deployment. I am NOT interested in hiring anyone else who won't finish the job.
