PeopleSoft Internet Architecture

PIA Architecture

PIA is a server-centric architecture

Web Browser

End users and administrators access PeopleSoft applications and administrative tools on a
The system sends pure HTML to a supported browser interface. Most processing occurs on the
server level
PeopleSoft supports the PeopleTools Development Environment in Windows, which is intended
for applications developers and system administrators who need access to PeopleTools. These
users require workstations running Windows
The browser uses the HTTP protocol. The browser sends requests to the Web server, which
forwards the request to the application server. A servlet installed on the Web server facilities all
browser connections.
The browser does not download any applets to complete a transaction. The application server
sends only the following to the browser:
With the browser processing only the items in the previous list, the result is a lightweight
deployment of PeopleSoft applications that does not burden the client workstation with
unnecessary processing responsibility.

Web Server

Password Authentication

Handle Encryption
Servlet Engine
A Java-enabled Web server is required to support browser transaction requests and the
application messaging technology.
On the web server a collection of PeopleSoft Java servlets designed to handle a wide range
of PeopleSoft transactions needs to be installed.
The following list presents the software that runs on the PIA Web server
Web Services (Weblogic & Websphere)
Servlet Engine
Java Servlets
PeopleSoft Servlets
The following list contains the PeopleSoft servlets that reside on the Web server
Portal Servlet
It manages search, content management, and homepage personalization
Integration Gateway Servlet
Messaging Gateway servlet transmits publish/subscribe messages between message
Report Repository Servlet
Retrieves the report output in the Report Repository and serves it to the browser


PeopleSoft uses TUXEDO to manage database transactions, and Jolt, TUXEDO's

counterpart, to facilitate transaction requests issued from the Internet.
The browsers do not connect directly to the application server. Instead they send
HTTP requests to the Portal Servlet running on the Web server that translates the
HTTP request into a Jolt request that is sent to a specified Jolt port. Then the
application server itself, leveraging Tuxedo, runs the appropriate SQL against the
Jolt is a companion product that must coexist with Tuxedo on the same application
server machine. Jolt is not a standalone product; it cant function without Tuxedo.
Both TUXEDO and Jolt are products of BEA Systems.

Application Server

The application server is the core of the PeopleSoft Internet Architecture;

It executes business logic and issues SQL to the database server.
The application server consists of numerous PeopleSoft services and server
processes that handle transaction requests.
PS n-Vision & Crystal inputs stored
Data is temporarily stored (Component buffer)
The application server is responsible for maintaining the SQL connection to the
database for the browser requests and the PeopleTools Development
Environment in Windows.

Application Server

Database Server

The PeopleSoft database is the repository for all information managed by PeopleSoft
applications. Not only is application data stored in the database, but the PeopleSoft
meta data is also maintained in the database
The database server houses database engine and PeopleSoft database, which includes
all of the
object definitions,
system tables,
application tables, and
The database server must be running one of the supported RDBMS/operating system
The relationship between a database server and an application server is a one-to-many
model. That is, a single database server can have multiple application servers
connecting to it.
The database server simultaneously handles the application server connections,
Development Environment connections, and batch programs running against it.

Database Server

Batch Server

The batch server, or batch environment, is where PeopleSoft Process Scheduler

installed and configured, and it is the location where many of the batch programs run,
such as Application Engine programs.
In most situations this is also where COBOL and SQR executables are installed
Report Output files are stored
