Project Description

I need a desktop application for a windows based platform. The application must be written in Java.

The user interface will consist of two [url removed, login to view] to turn it on and one to turn it off. No other interface is needed.

Within the application, there has to be some sort of timer that runs every fifteen minutes.

Using the Yahoo stock API, I need to have certain stock information appended to a file. I need the current date/time (e.g. 6/18/2013 3:56 PM), the stock symbol, the opening price, the most recent price and the most recent sales volume.

The attached file has a list of stock symbols. For this project, I need for the app to access the top 10 stocks (one at a time or load them into an array) and get the stock info from the API and then post it to the file. This will happen within the fifteen minute timer that you will build.

To reiterate, every fifteen minutes the program will cycle through the top 10 stocks and post the results to a file. They will be appending not replacing any existing data in the file.

If you have any questions, please ask before you bid.
