I’ve come across the following statement on PeopleBooks (PeopleCode API Reference > Application Classes > When Would You Use Application Classes?). This statement can be found in PeopleBooks for PeopleTools versions 8.45 to 8.49:
In PeopleSoft application classes, instance variables are analogous to private variables in most object-oriented languages. This means that instance variables are inaccessible from PeopleCode outside the class where it is declared. I used to assume that a specific object (instance of a class) would only have access to its own instance variables. This appears not to be the case, as the following paragraphs in PeopleBooks (PeopleCode API Reference > Application Class > Self-Reference) states:
Oracle Process Manager & Notification Server (OPMN) is a new addition to R12 E-Business Suite Technology Stack. OPMN manages all Oracle Application Server 10g Components (like 1. Oracle HTTP Server, 2. OC4J etc). OPMN has three components.
1. Oracle Notification Server - Tool which carries messages (about failure, recovery, start) between different components of Oracle Application server.
Found an interesting post by Steven (for E-Business Suite 11i version)
How about software load balancing with the Release 12 E-Business Suite !!
