Evolution of PeopleSoft Event Mapping Framework

Evolution of PeopleSoft Event Mapping Framework

In Tools 8.55, Oracle provided a supporting structure in PIA through which we can associate Peoplecode events to Application class Peoplecode. The main purpose is to provide consumers the ability to maintain the custom code independently without modifying the delivered code thereby eliminating any need to retrofit peoplecode after every upgrade.

The initial release of this functionality came with several restrictions which made it more of a concept, but oracle has been continuously delivering updates in their subsequent Peopletools versions to make it a more viable option for customizations.

People Code events that can be mapped to:

ComponentPageComponent RecordComponent Record Field
PreBuild
PostBuild
SavePreChange
Workflow
SavePostChange
Activate**SearchInit*
SearchSave*
RowSelect
RowInit
RowInsert
RowDelete
SavePreChange
SavePostChange
SearchInit*
SearchSave*
FieldDefault*
FieldEdit*
FieldChange**

** 8.56 upgrade *8.58 upgrade

In 8.56 Peopletools version, along with new events Oracle introduced 2 very useful features:

  1. A reference page to search by application package and class. This helps in identifying the components, pages, records, and fields that have been configured with the specified application class.
  2. Multiple custom application class can be associated with a single PeopleCode event with control on the order of execution.

In the latest 8.58 version came several new updates to EMF:

  1. Additional peoplecode events can now be mapped to custom app classes.
  2. Records and record fields (including derived/work records) on subpages and secondary pages now supports event mapping.
  3. Peoplecodes to be executed in multiple events in a component can now be stored in single application class. A new event mapping parameter was introduced in the configuration for this purpose. Working example given by Oracle as follows:
 latest 8.58 version

The main drawback of using EMF still remains from its introduction. The peoplecode in the application class will fire either before or after the event associated with it. It is not possible to inject the code in-between the delivered peoplecode code present in the events. Also, we are still waiting for an option in application designer to indicate whether the current component has any mappings associated with it or not.

Even with these drawbacks, Event mapping framework has evolved to a form where developers can successfully implement the required customizations without modifying the delivered component.

Skip Costly Rework with Dynamic Change Resiliency​

Change resiliency is imperative in ever-evolving IT environments. Our patented object action framework streamlines change management by assigning object definitions to your shared assets. The same object may be used in a thousand automation steps, but it can be easily updated by making one simple change to the model definition. The change automatically propagates to every single instance where that object may have been used without a single line of code or manual human involvement. For more change readiness you can also engage our Impact Analysis for SAP to predict how changes in SAP transports will affect your business processes.

SOAIS Blog – Nuts and bolts of Certify Database Maintenance​

One of the key thing, which is often missed by the organizations, who have invested in using Worksoft Certify for automating their Business Process Validation initiatives, is implementing a Database Maintenance Plan. While the business and the test automation consultants get excited about the shiny new thing that they have got and start building the regression suite; planning and executing a database maintenance plan for most of the customers gets pushed down the priority list. However, since all the test assets in Certify are stored in a Database, a robust database maintenance plan is very important to maintain smooth operation of Certify with acceptable performance criteria. The customers usually start facing issues once they have built significant number of Certify processes which they have started executing on regular basis. Such executions add a lot of data to the tables storing results data and increase the overall size of the Certify database.

Worksoft Blog – Process Intelligence: A Multi-Dimensional Approach

The ability to extract process knowledge has become easier through the years. Technology has evolved to the point where we can deploy capabilities that connect at multiple levels to extract different types of process insight. In the past, organizations were forced to spend enormous energy extracting data manually from different applications and databases. Then, they would have to use things like spreadsheets to transform the data and convert it into meaningful information.
