"Private" App Class Members

I was reading Lee Greffin's post More Fun with Application Packages -- Instances and stumbled across this quote from PeopleBooks:

A private instance variable is private to the class, not just to the object instance. For example, consider a linked-list class where one instance needs to update the pointer in another instance.

What exactly does that mean? I did some testing to try and figure it out. Here is what I came up with:

List of PeopleSoft Blogs

It has been amazing to watch the exponential growth in the number of PeopleSoft community bloggers. It seems that most of them have links to other PeopleSoft blogs, but where is the master list of PeopleSoft blogs? Here is my attempt to create one. Don't see your blog on the list? Add a comment and I'll review your blog. If your blog is education oriented, then I will put it in the list... and probably delete your comment (that way you don't have to feel awkward about self promotion).

Unlimited Session Timeout

There are a lot of security admins out there that are going to hate me for this post. There are a lot of system administrators, developers, and users, however, that will LOVE me for this post. The code I'm about to share with you will keep the logged in PeopleSoft user's session active as long as the user has a browser window open that points to a PeopleSoft instance. Why would you do this? I can think of two reasons:

IoT – Embracing the Internet of Our Times

Over a decade back the telecommunication industry forever changed the way of “Connecting People” through the use of mobile devices. Today, in a world of digital natives, mobile phones are not a want but a need. Let me put that in perspective; there are nearly 6 billion mobile devices in the world which is a [...]

PeopleCode Coding Discipline

Java, JavaScript, C++, C Sharp, Objective C, Groovy... what do these languages have in common? Yes, curly braces, but besides that... actually, there are a lot of similarities between these languages. Throw Visual Basic, Perl, Python, or any other well-known language into the mix and the number of similarities drops significantly. Setting semantics and syntax aside, a common attribute of all well-known languages is standards and best practices. Some of those best practices (such as coding style) differ by language. For example, bash scripts can either look like, uh...

PeopleTools 8.54 Released

I see that PeopleTools 8.54 is released according to the PeopleSoft Technology Blog.  I’m eager to get digging into the new features, but I’m afraid it may be a while before I get to play with it.
Currently, it looks like you won’t be able to play with it unless you can go through a full install.  Upgrades are not supported until after a patch or two is released:

Why It Is Not ‘Cloud First’ in Manufacturing? – At Least Not Yet

Manufacturers seek efficiency, simplicity, continuous improvement and innovation. In spite of this, many are still not warming up to Cloud technologies. Why? When I talk to the CIOs, IT leaders and Business leaders in these companies it is difficult to put a finger on one or two causes. Rather it is a bunch of things.
First [...]

Many Clouds for Manufacturing

Manufacturing is set for bright days.  Factory floors are getting busier in Europe and US. China has cooled down a bit – but in overall scheme of things that may actually be OK.  Funds are available for investment.  IT departments are drawing up plans to fix things, modernize the infrastructure and applications. As they think [...]

Starting right with IoT

Just like with every new technology introduction, there’s a lot of buzz about Internet of Things or IoT. Several organizations are referring to it using different terms – Cisco uses ‘Internet of Everything’, IBM uses ‘Smart Planet’, GE uses ‘Industrial Internet’ and some others call it the ‘Cyber-Physical Systems’. All terms refer to the idea [...]
