The next profile in our ‘How I Work‘ series is Logesh Balasubramaniam. Logesh is one of the newer bloggers – posting on his LeanIT Designs site – however he provides great content and is usually one of the first to tackle new functionality. He has sometimes even managed to blog about new features before Oracle’s official post.
I got a call earlier today from the Tech Support Scammers. You’ve probably heard of this horribly unethical practice already, but the premise is that they cold-call seemingly randomly and try to convince you that there is a problem with your PC/router, and then attempt to get you to allow them remote access to your PC to ‘fix it’. Some then claim problems are due to expired warranties on the computer and demand payment, others setup a boot password and demand money for unlocking it.
The PeopleCode language has a lot of features and functions. But sometimes, it seems there are tasks we need to accomplish that are just out of reach of the PeopleCode language. It is at these times that I reach for Java. I have written a lot about Java, so I'm sure many of you already know how to mix Java with PeopleCode. While certainly a rational solution, one of the pain points of a Java solution is managing custom Java on the app and process scheduler servers.
One of our customers asked us to implement nested landing pages, in which some tiles would open a second landing page and eventually a third one and so on. Let me illustrate the use case with some screenshots (I apologise as they are in Spanish, but it should be useful anyway). This would be how the main landing page would look like:
I was asked by Dan Iverson from psadmin.io about my experiences of PeopleSoft on Oracle 12c. I have seen a number of PeopleSoft Financials systems on 12c recently. Generally the experience is very positive, but one common feature is that they had all disabled Adaptive Query Optimization. What is Adaptive Query Optimization?
Lots of information about the configuration and operation of a PeopleSoft system is stored in the database. Of course, most of the application itself is stored in the PeopleTools tables, for example, there are also performance metrics, particularly about batch processes. PS360 is a new tool that I am working on that will use just SQL scripts to extract that data to flat files, and package them up in a zip file so that they can be sent for further analysis.
