Implementing a Job Application Form

 By Phillipa Thomson

If you have ever been asked for a way to collect data from the user of your Liferay Portal, you almost always have to start a new software development project and as a result, it is a costly exercise. Such costs rise sharply when the online facility has to have multiple fields, multiple pages, file attachments, complex validation rules and dependencies (show/hide group of fields, depending on user selection).


We've published a how-to use case for accepting Job Applications on your Liferay Portal. This how-to covers the new topics of:
* Generating PDFs based on form submission contents
* Sending emails, attaching pdf transformations and attachments
