On a Nutshell:
An Association Membership Directory, CD-Rom version requieres a Local Search Engine on its Directory Section.
You are asked to develop or integrate a Local Search Engine for a CD-ROM, to search for terms / info on XML attributes or indexed free text.
Skills required include Flash / Action Script 2.0
Trade Assocation Company / Membership Directory has its CD-ROM version.
Directory is in Spanish language (and some items and tems are translated into English), and needs to incorporate a LOCAL SEARCH ENGINE for quick access to company information associated with specific TEXT (Company Name, Address, City, Product, Raw Material, etc. ).
Today, CD-Rom provides access via manual browsing by users, of EMPRESAS (Companies), PRODUCTOS (Products) and MATERIAS PRIMAS (Raw Materials). So, users need to browse company by company, product by product or raw material by raw material on three independent sections in order to find what they want.
So, you are asked to provide a Local Search Engine that would allow users enter terms and quickly pull info associated to it, and arranged in a way that it would be easy to consult and to access. A Print function would also be available. There are three main files (available on MS-Excel and XML within CD-Rom).
You are free to incorporate the SEARCH funtion on each of the three Directory sections (EMPRESAS, PRODUCTOS, MATERIAS PRIMAS), or on only one of them or even to create a fourth section (BUSQUEDA / SEARCH) for search and display results. There are about 3,000 companies listed, associated to address, contact information, product and raw materials. All search is local, and conducted within the CD-Rom.
You may create a fourth section on which SEARCH is conducted and info displayed, following design style and without disturbing the rest of the CD-Rom design. You are free to propose new design as long as rest of functionality remains intact.
Below you´ll find access to CD-Rom ... on Beta format so you may work on it,You may base search on xml files already on CD-Rom or prepare new ones from source files also available on link below.
Once work is finished, we´ll provide final version (same structure) so you may integrate solution on final version of CD-Rom for distribution.
