Recently, I received my annual report from WordPress/Jetpack. I have always enjoyed these reports, so I thought I would make it public.
For the complete report, view it here: PSST0101 – 2014 Year in Blogging
Here’s a couple of excerpts:
Madison Square Garden can seat 20,000 people for a concert. This blog was viewed about 67,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Madison Square Garden, it would take about 3 (more...)
One of my old tricks was to create a PeopleCode dump from the system. Then I could use a text editor tool such as gVim or Ultraedit to search through the code to find examples or certain uses of definitions.
Basically, a PeopleCode dump is easily created by searching for (Edit > Find In) a semicolon. Because every statement must have a semicolon, it matches every statement of code in the system. On the Find (more...)
Ok. Maybe this is a rant, but Data Mover can sometimes get under my skin! Some things you just expect to work, and when they don’t, it is very frustrating.
Here’s my problem. I created this very, very simple data import:
set log C:tempaa_setup_import_FADEV.log;
set input C:tempaa_setup_export_AATST.dat;
delete PS_RQ_GRP_TBL where RQRMNT_USEAGE = 'ADV';
import RQ_GRP_TBL where RQRMNT_USEAGE = 'ADV';
It gave me this error:
Error: Syntax error in where (more...)
I just noticed that the HCM PUM image is now available on PeopleSoft support. You can download it for the HCM updates, but you can also take a peak at what PeopleTools 8.54 looks like. Here’s the link: PeopleSoft Update Image HCM 9.2.008
I ran across this announcement on Oracle’s blogs about the new PeopleTools 8.54 OVM Template. 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.
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:
Today, PeopleTools 8.54 is (more...)
This post is part of my Jethro List. You can read more about the list on the Jethro List page.
Can I make another suggestion? Some of the text boxes in App Designer don’t work like regular Windows controls. Namely, they don’t support things like Control-A to select the entire text in the box. This is slightly frustrating and also makes App Designer feel antiquated.
One of those places is the File Layout Field Properties (more...)
I took a nice foray into Equation Engine the other day, and I don’t want to forget what I learned. On a demo instance, I want to go through a quick example of writing an Equation using Residency Data. We’ll try to grab the Residency status for a particular person (in state or out of state).
You can see the residency data at this navigation: Campus Community > Personal Information > Identification > (more...)

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. Then, a week or two ago, PeopleSoft published the pre-release notes. I don’t have any inside information, but I thought I would list the features that looked exciting to me…
- Code Completion: HUGE — this is a feature I have been looking for (more...)
