Probably you need to give more detail. Is the cv attached as a word document or the details are submitted through web page.

As per understanding you are trying to exact the data from document. Is there any specific format of the document? Because nobody follows any guidelines when they are preparing the resume.

In other words, there is no common format? So you'd need to use heuristics to find the data that interests you in the document?

Tim
you are right,
you can start with one field and get it done and then focus on other format.
thanks

There is something about that combination of imports which makes me suspicious. For a start you should look at the API for StringTokenizer(←link) which is legacy code. The presence of those Readers together makes me suspect you are confusing text and binary file input.
You cannot parse anything until you have decided on its grammar. It is a lot easier to write a grammar if you put the fields in a particular order, which is why many websites insist on name, address, etc., being put in particular fields. If you can get the grammar into a context-free form, you can use lex and yacc (or their more recent counterparts) to parse it. If you are going to allow it to be in a free grammar, which allows the following formats, you are never going to be able to parse it mechanically:
  • email: abc.def@xyz.com
  • My e-mail address if abc.def@xyz.com
  • You can e-mail me on abc.def@xyz.com
  • I presume you will create a Career object with Lists<PreviousJob> and Address objects as fields.

    You can't come up with generic solution. There might be 100's different formats followed by the candidates do you write logic for handling different kind of resume format's.

    We can identify email id and phone number by following there pattern. What about candidate name?

    If you are asserting that CVs are written in a free grammar, then, no, you cannot come up with a parser.

    You realize this thread hasn't been updated in three years? The OP may not even be around anymore, so I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for them to post their solution.

    Also, since this has also been resurrected in a different topic, I've closed this one. Please ask a question once.
