This chapter deals with the mechanics of configuring the application server. It explains how the various files are combined and compiled in the Tuxedo configuration file. An understanding of this is necessary before moving on to sizing and configuring the application server for optimal performance, which is discussed in the next chapter. This chapter also discusses the Tuxedo Administration Console, a Java applet shipped by BEA with Tuxedo that permits remote administration and some monitoring of the application server.
Naturally, PeopleSoft also provides documentation about the application server. This chapter should be read in conjunction with that documentation.
