It has been amazing to watch the exponential growth in the number of PeopleSoft community bloggers. It seems that most of them have links to other PeopleSoft blogs, but where is the master list of PeopleSoft blogs? Here is my attempt to create one. Don't see your blog on the list? Add a comment and I'll review your blog. If your blog is education oriented, then I will put it in the list... and probably (more...)
There are a lot of security admins out there that are going to hate me for this post. There are a lot of system administrators, developers, and users, however, that will LOVE me for this post. The code I'm about to share with you will keep the logged in PeopleSoft user's session active as long as the user has a browser window open that points to a PeopleSoft instance. Why would you do this? I (more...)

I really enjoy hearing about developers incorporating proven methodologies into their PeopleSoft development practices. One of my favorite's is Test Driven Development. Lee Greffin has grabbed onto this concept and is sharing his experiences on the Greffins Feather blog. You can read his PSUnit series here.
Now that PeopleTools 8.53 includes jQuery, the question is, "how do I use it?" Probably the easiest way is to add something like this to your Pagelet or page where you want to use jQuery (see New PeopleTools 8.53 Branding Tools):
Pagelet Wizard custom transformations can use special tags documented here to insert images, message catalog entries, or to format numbers and dates.
