Integration Broker basics for the PeopleSoft developer

In the past year we have answered a lot of questions on OTN Forum on the Integration Broker and how to work with web services in PeopleSoft.

We have decided to share with you a training that we have written on the basics of Integration Broker and frequent integration scenarios that a PeopleSoft Developer is faced with. The training is written using PeopleSoft HCM 9.1/PeopleTools 8.51, but still valid for PeopleTools 8.52.

The training can be downloaded using the following link and some sources needed for the training can be downloaded using the following link.

This training also uses Non-PeopleSoft tools like:
The training uses JDeveloper for XSL mappings. The training does not cover how to setup JDeveloper for PeopleSoft, see this link on how to set this up.

This training has over 80 pages and covers the following subjects:

Setup Integration Broker

Setting up basic configuration like Integration Gateway, Pub/Sub Servers, Default Local & Internal nodes, Domains, Logging

Provide Component Interface Service

Providing a CI Based Service and testing this through SoapUI and PeopleCode

Call external service

Create a Mock Service in SoapUI to simulate an external service and write PeopleCode to call an external service

Custom PeopleSoft Application Class Service

Creating a service in PeopleSoft from scratch using an Application Class handler and testing this through SoapUI and PeopleCode

Translations

Creating a transformation program using the JDeveloper XSL Mapper

Application Engine Handler

Exposing an Application Engine as a service operation handler


Note: Writing code is dependent on the scenario and even more writing code is personal. The code used in this training is a guideline for you and definitively not the only way to achieve integration. Write code that you are comfortable with and write code that is readable for all.

    Excellent Part 1. For Part 2, how about REST/WADL services? Working on those right now and Oracle cannot get me going with my first one.
