Java Desktop Client for Web App

We need to create a Java desktop application to allow document uploads to our web application.

Note - in all cases where the Web App is required to do something - we will program that function. We require the Freelancer to only work on the Java component.

The Java application will:

1) Allow the user to login to the Java App

- The login will be authenticated via HTTP to our Web App

2) Show a 'virtual file system', showing the structure of the file system in the web application

- The data for this file system will be returned from the web application via XML or JSON (we will provide this feed)

- Ability to browse folders, close folders, have folders inside folders

- Ability to create folders (Create request to be sent to the Web App)

3) Allow a user to upload a file into the virtual file system via 'drag and drop'

- User shall drag and drop file from desktop into the Java app

- The file upload would happen via POST to the web application

- Web App will return a 'success'/'fail' message

4) Allow a user to open a file from the virtual file system

- On 'double click' the file will be retrieved from the Web App, and streamed to the Java App

- When loaded to a local cache, it will open on the users desktop

- The app needs to launch the appropriate software for the file.

eg: MS Word, Excel

5) When a user 'saves' the file, it shall save back to the Web App

- So, if a user is in MS Word, Excel, it should save back to the Java App

- The Java App will stream the file back to the Web App.
