PeopleCode Variable Scope Quiz

***UPDATE.  Question 4 was not clear. Now fixed (hat tip Banksy)I recently wrote a little quiz for some PeopleSoft developer friends of mine on PeopleCode Variable Scoping.  It's not comprehensive and it may not even be accurate.  It's offered to the PeopleSoft community as a thought provoking item for both new and hardcore PeopleCode developers.There's only 7 questions.Please feel free to leave comments, new insights, corrections or other helpful witty banter.

Effectively Rewriting Siebel Predefined Queries for Performance

The following is a cross-post from my co-worker Jeroen Burgers, who shares his experiences as an Oracle Implementation Advisor on his blog with the same name. In one of his recent articles, Jeroen picked up the topic of Siebel Predefined Queries (PDQ) and the impact they can have on performance.
