$40 prize

Recommended Posts

I'm working on something called the C++ Middleware Writer (CMW). The CMW is the back tier of a 3-tier system. The middle and front tiers are open-source and are available here --
[url="http://webEbenezer.net/build_integration.html"]http://webEbenezer.n...ntegration.html[/url] . There's an archive on that page that you can download. When the software is built, a library and two executables are created. I'm interested in finding bugs in the library or the two executables. The contest is focused on finding run-time problems in either of the two tiers or the library that can be downloaded. I'll want to reproduce the problem here before awarding the prize to someone. The open-source tiers run on both Windows and Linux. I have access to Linux and two versions of Windows 7 here.

There's a contest status page here --

At this time that page has the following:
$40 contest history/status
Oct. 9th, 2011 -- 6:00pm -- open

-------------------------------------------------------------------
The contest can be in one of three states: open, closed or on hold. I only plan to award one prize at this time so if someone reports what they believe to be a problem, I'll change the status to on hold until deciding if the reported problem is a bug or not.

If the status is on hold, you may not want to report your findings until either a negative decision is made on the pending matter or the contest reopens. Depending on how things go with this, I'll close the contest after the first bug is agreed upon, but may reopen it at a later date.
