Project Description

Hi i have a project i need to be done, its based on the same idea as the Minecraft launcher, its a standalone executable made in java which connects to a news rss feed and displays it in the user end as a windowed app kind of thing, what im asking is for something similar that my clients can launch on their computer and everytime retrieves the most recent news from a rss of my choosing, and we can say it will be a generic wordpress feed or something similar,
i would like this launcher to be graphically appealing so i will provide the background graphics for you to insert them, im planning on changing the back images with the changing seasons and special dates so im thinking it will be best if retrieved from a specific url, im assuming its possible, dont know for sure if can be done like this, and last i need it to have a graphical button at the bottom corner that when clicked will open a default browser page with a specific url.
I will need it to work for PC and Mac users
I will need the the source at the end of the project, so i can change the url link button for updates,
and will ask for a build to test before its completed.

Thanks for your time.
