The Learn PeopleSoft Application Engine course is presented in two sections: Introduction and Lab Project.
The first section introduces the concepts of Application Engine. We cover the organization of an Application Engine program, How Sections, Steps, and Actions are used to control the flow of the program. We learn about each action type, demonstrating the use of each using a Hello World style program.
The second section of the course is a Lab. You can either sit back and watch as we create an application engine program, learning specific topics and techniques at each stage of the build. Or, you can follow along and create the application engine on your own PeopleSoft instance as we go along. Throughout the construction of the lab project, we will learn program flow and control structures, the usage of state records for passing information across program sections, and temporary tables to store intermediate data and allow for concurrent program execution.
We show how to set up your environment for tracing the program execution. At the end of this course, you will be fully capable of developing and maintaining application engine programs.
All of these concepts are learned and reinforced through the use of careful explanation and demonstration as you build a significant application directly on a PeopleSoft instance.
