We’d really appreciate your help. But first, a bit of background:
The Partner of the Year awards is an annual awards ceremony held by the UK Oracle User Group. It allows customers to show appreciation for partners that have provided a service to them over the previous 12 months. As you would imagine, being voted a winner (for the categories that you operate in) is a wonderful accolade as it’s the end-users that have spoken.
The recently launched version of PeopleTools 8.54 contains a broad range of enhancements. Although we’ve had the GA (General Availability) release we can’t upgrade existing environments until the 8.54.02 patch, so now is a good time to perform a fresh sandbox install to investigate the details and highlight the areas that are of most interest.
As in the first part of this series, there is a lot of content to cover (more...)
I was reading Lee Greffin's post More Fun with Application Packages -- Instances and stumbled across this quote from PeopleBooks:
A private instance variable is private to the class, not just to the object instance. For example, consider a linked-list class where one instance needs to update the pointer in another instance.
What exactly does that mean? I did some testing to try and figure it out. Here is what I came up with:
- It (more...)
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...)

Stitching matters. Stitching holds disparate components and materials together in a form something close to what we had in mind as a solution to a problem. Could be clothes. Could be wicker baskets. In the tech world, stitching things together typically involves integrating components or services together into a unified solution. And it matters. A lot.
I have a few applications on my mobile platforms that rely on integrated (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...)
Following the announcement on Friday that Tools 8.54 was available, we dived straight in (whilst cursing under our breath that it was released at 6pm on Friday night on the weekend of the World Cup final!).
We download all of the media (which doesn’t take long on AWS – this is the 2.7GB tools 8.54.01 patch coming down in about a minute and a half):
At the time of (more...)

These validations are performed during the entry and update of bank accounts.With R12.2 the account number validations for United Kingdom are enhanced to include a modulus check alongside the length checks. Modulus checking is the process of [...]

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...)
This week we have a second guest-post from Richard Yip. Richard is a PeopleSoft HCM & Payroll Technical Consultant at Santander Bank here in the UK. He is a long-term PeopleSoft techie and a regular at the UKOUG conferences. I’m delighted to be able to give him a conduit through which to share some of his good work.
Richard’s previous post can be found here.

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...)

As we continue to see more inroads made by cloud and SaaS technology, I have to admit to a downside...what can I work with in my local lab.
My local lab consists of two iMacs, an Apple Airbook, several arrays of 1-TB external hard drives from OWC, and a serious effort in leveraging virtual machines (I'm personally a VMware fan). It wasn't too long ago that I could run most Oracle technology on my (more...)
I'm hanging out in the middle of nowhere this week...Fort Riley, Kansas. Here to visit my granddaughters. Which means I'm missing ODTUG's KScope14 conference. Missed the OAUG/Quest/IOUG Collaborate14 this year as well. Will also be absent at OAUG's ConnectionPoint14 in Pittsburgh. Will be missing a few others that are usually on my calendar as well (But I made it to UTOUG Training Days, Alliance14, and the MidAtlantic HEUG conference - will also make it (more...)
