Typographical Conventions

This table contains the typographical conventions that are used in this guide:
Typographical Convention

Description

Bold

Indicates PeopleCode function names, method names, language
constructs, and PeopleCode reserved words that must be included
literally in the function call.

Italics

Indicates field values, emphasis, and PeopleSoft or other booklength publication titles. In PeopleCode syntax, italic items are
placeholders for arguments that your program must supply.
We also use italics when we refer to words as words or letters as
letters, as in the following: Enter the letter O.

KEY+KEY

Indicates a key combination action. For example, a plus sign (+)
between keys means that you must hold down the first key while
you press the second key. For ALT+W, hold down the ALT key
while you press the W key.

Monospace font

Indicates a PeopleCode program or other code example.

“ ” (quotation marks)

Indicate lesson and chapter titles in cross-references and words that
are used differently from their intended meanings.

. . . (ellipses)

Indicate that the preceding item or series can be repeated any
number of times in PeopleCode syntax.

{ } (curly braces)

Indicate a choice between two options in PeopleCode syntax.
Options are separated by a pipe ( | ).

[ ] (square brackets)

Indicate optional items in PeopleCode syntax.

& (ampersand)

When placed before a parameter in PeopleCode syntax, an
ampersand indicates that the parameter is an already instantiated
object.
Ampersands also precede all PeopleCode variables.

Designing the Application

Lesson 8

Review
In this lesson, you learned that:

Planning an application is the most important phase of development.

Creating the functional specifications begins the process of defining the capability of
the application.

You use the functional specifications to create technical specifications.

The training application that you build will allow you to track students and the
courses they take.

Lesson 9

Discussing Fields in PeopleSoft Applications
After you design an application, you can start building it. In PeopleSoft applications, this
means creating definitions. Field definitions are the foundation for all other definitions.

In this lesson, you learned that:

The Verity search engine is a standard feature of all PeopleSoft 8 applications; users
enter text searches that are filtered for security access rights before links to content
are returned.

You generate a registry search collection through a process that you should run
regularly.

Keywords are unique, searchable values that enable you to expand the scope of a
Verity search for specific content references.

INTERNAL

Slide 441 ______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Student Notes

PeopleSoft has two approaches to auditing data: by field and by record definition. In
either case, the system writes data to tables created to contain audit data.
Field-level audits record when you insert, update, or delete a field value. The system
writes a row of audit data to the PSAUDIT table for each field marked for audit. You
may write multiple rows of audit data for a single transaction.
Record-level audits record any inserts, updates, or deletions for specified fields in a row
of data. PeopleSoft does not provide a table to store record-level audit data.

Discussing Advantages and Disadvantages of Implementing Audits
Database administrators perform audits to track the tasks that users perform in PeopleSoft
enterprise applications. You might have hundreds or thousands of people signing in and
altering data in the database. Alterations fall into three categories:

Adding new rows of data.

Changing existing rows of data.

Deleting rows of data.

Performing Data Audits

Lesson 21

Discussing Advantages and Disadvantages of Implementing Audits
(continued)
There are disadvantages of auditing.

Auditing every action on every table can significantly reduce overall performance.

For any field or record that you audit, a separate database transaction has to take
place in addition to the user action, which is detrimental to performance.

Audit information is stored in separate tables, which can become quite large and
consume database server space.
