No. The web server that was delivered on the Tuxedo CD has absolutely nothing to do with WebLogic. WebLogic is a web application server that is designed for large-scale production websites.

The HTTP server on the Tuxedo CD was only there to provide a mechanism for launching the graphical Tuxedo administration console if the Tuxedo administrator didn't already have a web server in place. It was never intended for large-scale, production website use only for a system administrator or two.

Q17. Which Of The Following Is Not True In Component Interface (ci) Architecture?

A component interface can be mapped to multiple PeopleSoft components.

Q18. Can A Peopletools 8.4 And A Peopletools 8.1x Database Run On The Same Machine?

Yes, databases can co-exist on the same physical machine. In most cases, thedatabases themselves can exist within the same RDBMS, however, it isimportant to verify that the database version required by PeopleTools 8.4 is thesame as for the current PeopleTools 8.1x implementation.

Q19. In Ibm How Should Web Application Servers Be Used With Peopletools 8.1x And Peopletools 8.4?

The PeopleSoft Internet Architecture uses a web application server and anHTTP server. People Tools 8.12 and above include both BEA WebLogic andApache with Jserv. With PeopleTools 8.4, both BEA WebLogic and IBMWebSphere are bundled. Apache with Jserv is no longer a supported webapplication server combination.

Customers can choose which web applicationserver to run during installation time.In a mixed PeopleTools 8.1x and 8.4 environment, each PeopleTools installationshould have their own chain of web application server and application server,PeopleSoft Proprietary and Confidential Page 5and these can be on the same machine. For example, a PeopleTools 8.1xinstallation using Apache and Jserv could reside on the same machine as aPeopleTools 8.4 installation using IBM WebSphere. Care should be taken toensure that unique port numbers are assigned to each server chain.

Q20. Which Of The Following Are True When A Component Interface (ci) Is Created On Component That Has Add Action Enabled?

Get keys, Create keys and Find keys gets created automaticallyThe Create method is created alongwith the other Standard methods for the CI

Keys, Properties & Collections, Methods and Name

Q22. Which Of The Following Can Be Mapped As Find Keys For A Component Interface?

Search keys and alternate search keys of a search record.

Q23. Why Is Peoplesoft No Longer Supporting Apache Jserv?

Apache JServ was a servlet engine that was supported in PeopleTools 8.1x. This support has been removed from PeopleTools 8.4 for several reasons: v JServ is no longer an active product and is in maintenance mode and there are no longer any new official releases. v Our customers have exhibited a desire to use commercial products for mission-critical enterprise web application servers rather than open source solutions. Therefore, moving to support Tomcat is not seen as a reasonable solution. v Apache can still be used as an HTTP server with BEA WebLogic .

Q24. Do You Know For The Servlet Layer On The Web Server, What Version Of The Java Servlet Api Are The Pia Java Servlets Coded To With Peopletools 8.4?

The PIA Java servlets in PeopleTools 8.4 are coded to JavaSoft's Java Servlet API 2.0 and are fully compatible with Servlet API 2.@It should be noted that the PeopleSoft Internet Architecture is supported only on the BEA WebLogic and WebSphere servlet engines.

Q25. Suppose If You Are Ps Developer Then In What Scenarios Component Interface Will Have Advantages Over Component?

A component exposes your pages to peoplesoft only.Moreover it helps us to define common properties for a set of related pages.

A component interface is a set of application programming interfaces (APIs) that you can use to access and modify PeopleSoft database information programmatically. PeopleSoft Component Interfaces expose a PeopleSoft component (a set of pages grouped for a business purpose) for synchronous access from another application (PeopleCode, Java, C/C++, or Component Object Model [COM]).


Q26. Tell Me The Example Below Demonstrates The Use Of Sqr Flags In The Configuration Manager Directories Folder: -f C:pshrmssqr .what Do The Above Sqr Flags Signify To The Sqr Report Writer Upon Execution

Specifies the output path

Q27. Why Did Peoplesoft Bundle Ibm Websphere Advanced Single Server Edition Rather Than Advanced Edition?

The Advanced Single Server Edition (AEs) of WebSphere provides the same core J2EE and Web Services programming model as the Advanced Edition (AE) with simplified administration. In the AE version WebSphere uses DB2 or other standard database to keep the configuration and runtime information to support very large farm of WebSphere servers. However, it is one more database to install, administer and maintain. The AEs version does not use the database and uses file based configuration in a way that is similar to BEA WebLogic. PeopleSoft and IBM WebSphere architects determined that AEs version would satisfy the deployment requirements of PeopleSoft customers and would make it easy for owning and administering PeopleSoft Applications based on WebSphere.

Q28. Do You Know Does Application Messaging Work Between 8.1x And 8.4 Applications?

Application Messaging is used by PeopleSoft applications to communicate withone another. This is true not just for 8.1x and 8.4 applications, but also between an 8.1x and an 8.4 application. For example, the HRMS 8.3 applications, which are based on PeopleTools 8.15, can communicate with Financials 8.4applications, which are based on PeopleTools 8.4, using Application Messaging. If specific issues materialize relating to the Application Messages published by certain applications, these new messages will be made available to customers.

Q29. What Http Servers And Java Servlet Engine Combinations Are Supported With Peopletools 8.4?

All popular http servers (reverse proxies) are supported. Please refer to the platforms database on Customer Connection for specific information on current certified platforms

Q30. Which Data Types Is Not Supported By The Peoplecode Programming Environment?


Q31. Do You Know Are Disconnected Mobile Applications Supported In People Tools 8.1x?

No. The PeopleSoft Mobile Agent architecture, which is used to support disconnected mobile applications, is only available in PeopleTools 8.@The PeopleSoft Mobile Agent is dependent upon certain core technologies that were specifically developed for PeopleTools 8.4.

Q32. Tell Me Both Bea Weblogic And Ibm Websphere Have The Ability To Plug Into Many Different Web Servers. Does Peoplesoft Support The Web Servers That They Plug Into?

BEA and IBM provide plug-ins for many of the leading web servers. This allows the customer to use their own HTTP web server and WebLogic?s or WebSphere?s Java servlet engine. PeopleSoft uses this plug-in capability to support IIS. We have no reason to believe that there will be any issues with other web servers that WebLogic or WebSphere are able to work with through their plug-in architecture, but PeopleSoft GSC will not support these other web servers with PeopleTools 8.4

Q33. Where Are Workflow Work Items Found?


Q34. Explain Is Web Server Load Balancing Supported With Peopletools 8.4?

Customers can set up clusters of BEA WebLogic or IBM WebSphere servers to do web server load balancing. In such scenarios, if an instance is down, requests are automatically routed to another instance. For more information on high availability and clustering with WebLogic, WebSphere and other web servers.
