So, after talking with the Army’s G6 (essential the IT Department), the competition I’m entering (which because I’m not an active duty Reservist, I cannot receive prize money) is focused on web applications, not desktop applications. The changes you can expect to see in my coding is that there will be quite a bit of php, perl and python that I’ll be using rather than the application side. At the same time though, I’ll take what I do in this web application and use it for developing a desktop application and a Microsoft Office plugin that can be used to batch load files. Just figured I’d acknowledge the reason for changes. On the plus side of all of this, perl has a specific Mime module and php has a great and simple interface to xml parsing, so this may end up easier as a web application.
