1. What is a set ID or Table set?
It is going share common control table values.
2. What is an object group?
Collection of one or more objects that form a logical group for security purpose.
3. What is business Process Map?
It is an alternative method for accessing panels or it is a graphical representation of a map.
4. What is an activity?
It is a collection of logical steps. It represents specific transaction a user might need to perform.
5. What is a business Process?
It is a collection of activities and it represents broad area functionality, categorizing the several activities.
6.What is a Process?
A task involved by the system.
7. What is a process instance?
It is a process number used to request process.
8. What is a process server agent?
It is going to initialize, select and parse the program.
9. What is a command line parameter?
The executable (.EXE) file is nothing but command line parameter. E.g. C:/SQLbin\SQL.exe.
10. What is Parameter List?
It defines under what database, platform will the program. (Nothing but the meta-strings)
11. What is Application Upgrade?
It is a migration of object from one database to another and updating other system components such as application software.
12. What is Mass change and explain the uses of Mass change?
Mass change is a SQL generator you can use to develop and perform custom applications. Using mass change, a developer canset up a series of INSERT, UPDATE, OR DELETE SQL statements that the end user can execute to perform businessfunctions.The overall structure of Mass change is similar to that of People soft QueryExcept that Query retrieves data from the database while mass change actually updates the database.The uses of Mass change are as follows.1. It is used to perform high volume set oriented transactions.2. Copy data from table or table3. Archive table data (Archive means that the data does not have backup file and uses to update the values)
13. Why use Mass change and why not SQL execute to update a record, which is not attached to the panel?
The reason why Mass change is preferred over SQL exec is….1. Two- Three Mass change program can work at a single time.2. Data / information need not be defined in Mass change3. Mass change can be used for file download upload.
14. What are the steps involved in Mass change?
The following are the order of steps involved in Mass change.`1. Define type2. Assign to template3. Operator security4.Mass change definition
15. What is Mass change group?
Adding all Mass change into a group. (i.e., Multiple Mass change definitions can be executed simultaneously).
16. What is workflow?
To an extent all the business processes defined using the Application designer involve workflow. However we usually reservethe term to refer to processes that involve multiple users and the routing of data between the users. People soft workflow toolshelp you build the routings into your computer systems. You use them to tie together the individual steps so that the system canhelp coordinate the activities.
17. How Workflow is controlled?
It is controlled by Decision Point (it is graphically denoted by a (?)). Where user has to choose which activity is appropriatetowards the next step.
18. What are the key fields used in Key list?
7 key fields used in a key list. They are as follows..1. Busprocname- (Business Process Name)2. Activity name3. Event name4. Work list name5. Instance Id6. Transaction Id7. Emplid Note: While defining the above fields in the record definition, a key has to be assigned in the record field properties.
19. What is routing in workflow?
Transfer of roles / users
20. Why workflow is used and explains the advantage of workflow in People soft application?
Workflow typically eliminates the job tasks associated with controlling paper flow, and frees people the once performedclerical functions to do more meaningful work.• Tasks that don’t require user involvement• Tasks that involve non People soft users• Tasks that several users work on together.
21. Define the components of workflow?
There are 3 underlying components of workflow i.e., Rules, Roles, Routing.
Rules are your company’s business practices captured in software. Rules determine what activities are required to process your  business data. The rules are contained in policies and procedures documents.
Roles describe how people fit into the workflow. A role is a class of users who perform the same type of work, such as clerksor managers. Your business rules typically specify what user role needs to do an activity.Roles direct the work to types of people rather than to individuals. Identifying roes instead of individual users makes your workflow more flexible and easier to maintain. Roles remain stable even as people change jobs.
Routings connect the activities in the workflow. They are the systems means of moving information from one place to another,from one step to the next. Routings bring the flow into workflow. The network of routings creates a business process fromwhat used to be isolated activities. Routings make it possible to deploy applications throughout the enterprise. They work through the levels and departments of an enterprise to bring together the role that are necessary to complete complex tasks.
Peoplesoft Interview Questions - Component Interface Builder1) What are the main elements in the component Interface ?
Main elements of component Interface• Component interface name• Keys• Properties and collections• Methods
2) Difference between Get keys, find keys and Create Keys ?
Get keys: - These are mapped to the fields marked as scrh in the component’s search record. Automatically “Search key” fieldsin search record become Get keys.
We cannot change it.
Find keys:
- These are mapped to fields marked as Alt or Srch in the component search record. You may remove Find keysthat you do not wish to make available for searching.
Create Keys:
- It is generated from the key fields for the search record. If Add search record is present then its key fields aretaken. We cannot change it.
3) How do you provide security for the component interface?
• Open the Permission list• On the Component Interface tab• Add row and select the newly created Component Interface• Edit the permissions to give permission for the standard methods• Get, Create, Save, cancel, find.
4) What the steps that you need to do in people code to invoke Component Interface?
• Establish a user section• Get the component interface definition• Populate the create keys• Create an instance of the component interface• Populate the required fields• Save the component Interface.&Session = GetSession();&CI = &Session.GetcompIntfc(CompIntfc.INTERFACE_NAME)&CI.KEY_FILED_NAME = ‘NEW’If not &CI.Create () ThenElsePopulate other fieldsEnd-if;Populate the other fieldsIf not &CI.Save () ThenElseEnd-if;
5) How do you test Component Interface?
• Using the Component Interface tester • Give values in the tester for options• Get Existing, Create new, Find and perform the operation from the CI Tester 
6) Catching error message in the component Interface? OrUse of PSMessages in the CI ?
This function needs to be called when ever methods like Find, Save, Create methods return false.Error text and Error type can be printed in the log message for any other action in to the log messge.Function CheckErrorCodes()&PSMessages = &Session.PSMessages;&ErrorCount = &PSMessages.Count;For &i = 1 To &ErrorCount&ErrorText = &PSMessages.Item(&i).Text;&ErrorType = &PSMessages.Item(&i).Type;End-For;End-Function;
7) What is method? What are the different types of method?Methods:
- A method is an object that performs a very specific function on a component interface at run-time.Standard methods and user-defined methods.
Standard methods:
- Automatically generated upon the creation of a new component Interface in Application.Apart from the Standard methods there are Standard methods available for the use with any collection.
