DDL Overview

With Dynamic Data Lists (DDL), Liferay provides a powerful feature to create ad-hoc record structures beside common entities.

Unfortunately, Liferay's DDL portlets do not provide as much functionality you need to fully  benefit of this feature without software development.

Thanks god, there's EasyView support of DDLs!
