Mobile device app -- need an estimated dev time - Coldfusion - Advanced Techniques

Hi, all. We've got a user with the following question: "What I need is a survey designed connected to a database so that my 5 mentors could have this survey on an IPAQ, use it offline while they are observing teachers in classrooms and then cradle them when they get back to the office and upload the information." Do you know a very, very rough estimate for how long it would take to build such an app in ColdFusion? Please forgive the sketchy specs, but that's all we've got from the user and she wants an estimate....

    Default Mobile device app -- need an estimated dev time

    Hi, all. We've got a user with the following question: "What I need is a
    survey designed connected to a database so that my 5 mentors could have this
    survey on an IPAQ, use it offline while they are observing teachers in
    classrooms and then cradle them when they get back to the office and upload
    the information."

    Do you know a very, very rough estimate for how long it would take to build
    such an app in ColdFusion? Please forgive the sketchy specs, but that's all
    we've got from the user and she wants an estimate.

    In order to use it offline, you're either going to need to install Coldfusion
    on the iPaq or write a client-side app that will capture the data.

    You can't build the whole app in Coldfusion, as you can't install Coldfusion
    on the IPaq. You could build the backend that the ipaqs sync to in coldfusion,
    but you're going to need a local app on the ipaq to actually collect the
    information, then that app will need to have the logic to connect to the
    backend and send the info once connected.

    Thanks, Kronin555. That helped clarify the problem. This is not a Web app if
    it's not connected to a db via wireless. That really helped me understand
    it. Thanks :)
