Duration 5 Days

PeopleCode is integrated into every aspect of PeopleSoft applications. This five-day PeopleSoft PeopleCode training course gives you the essential tools to work with object-oriented PeopleCode.Learn To:Write, edit and debug PeopleCode programs.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 and classes.Implement and extended delivered application classes.Build in a PeopleSoft EnvironmentThroughout this course, you'll actively build programming skills in a PeopleSoft environment. The tools and skills you use and acquire will teach you about the structure of PeopleCode, while preparing you to move on to more advanced applications.Live Virtual Class FormatA Live Virtual Class (LVC) is exclusively for registered students; unregistered individuals may not view an LVC at any time.
