PeopleSoft Applications are built using PeopleCode as the main language.

We will train you in PeopleCode with an objective to make you understand the PeopleCode Write, edit, and debug PeopleCode programs for customizing/modifying PeopleSoft Applications.

  • Integrate PeopleCode with the component processor event flow.
  • Use PeopleCode to validate data and control program flow.
  • Manipulate data in the component buffer and in SQL tables.
  • Program with object-oriented PeopleCode.
  • Create and manage application packages.
  • Create a graphical representation of data using Charts.

Duration: 7 Days
