I need 4(5) steps drupal form form form applying for loan.
Step 1: collect required loan and income data.
Step 1a: assess (algorithm will be given to coder) if customer can get loan, and based on result display prompt for continue, or say "sorry".
Step 2: collect personal details
Step 2b: display terms & conditions, and continue if accepted
Step 3: Say thank you for applying, we will contact you , etc....
IMPORTANT: from data will be saved to different database than drupal works.
IMPORTANT(II): form definition will be stored in some configuration file. Format of file would be such:
"name"=>"Loan Amount Requested",
I will need to display form data and render form in external application, so such definition must be simple and located outside the Drupal database. And I think it will simplify form creation.
I expect that coder will suggest format of such configuration. Also, I will need coder to agree validators names used.
External database will be MySQL. Drupal database can be MySQL or PostgreSQL.
Drupal 5.5, MySQL and (optional) PostgreSQL
