The newest addition to the OakTable Press series, PeopleSoft for the Oracle DBA, will teach you a range of techniques for maintaining a PeopleSoft system. You will then become able to implement techniques like indexing, implementing DDL, managing tablespaces, and fixing low-performing SQL queries. Author David Kurtz is a field expert and provides answers to common questions that arise when using PeopleSoft on an Oracle database.
Kurtz begins the book with an architecture overview, then proceeds to BEA Tuxedo, PeopleSoft's application server. Kurtz transitions smoothly between subsequent chapters, explaining database structures, connectivity, keys and indexing, the PeopleSoft DDL, and tablespaces. Kurtz gives appropriate weight to advanced topics as well, like schemas, performance metrics, performance monitoring utilities, and SQL optimization techniques. The final chapters provide crucial, advanced information about Tuxedo.
