This course covers the installation and implementation of the PeopleTools 8.50 components used to deploy PeopleSoft applications. In this course, students will install the required software and create the primary servers that are part of the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture.

Students will understand the PeopleSoft Internet Architecture and implications for system design and implementation. They will practice installing middleware components (Oracle Tuxedo), PeopleSoft environment (PeopleTools), PeopleSoft databases, web components (Oracle WebLogic), and PeopleBooks. Students will also create, configure, and administer Tuxedo-based application server domains and the PeopleSoft batch environment, including PeopleSoft Process Scheduler. In addition, students will use the monitoring tools to observe, troubleshoot, and tune the PeopleSoft environment.

This five-day course is taught in a Microsoft Windows environment using the Oracle database platform.
