The problem is that I don’t have Oracle VM and don’t really want to delve into messing with it at the moment. Virtualbox works better for my playing around. It turns out that it wasn’t too hard to get this running in Virtualbox.
So, here are my notes…
To start, I downloaded the machine. It came in 4 zip (more...)
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.

I’ve been a bit behind on reading my news. Back in April, PeopleSoft released their “Release Value Proposition” for PeopleTools 8.54, and it’s got me excited about it.

Ubuntu has been my choice of OS for some time now. It works great for the most part until I start trying to interact with the Microsoft-centric business world. App Designer is one of those pressure points. Normally, my clients give me a Windows-based remote desktop, but for playing around with things outside a client, I needed a way to run App Designer locally on my laptop.
