  1. Awesome blog post keep on posting more about peoplesoft.

  2. Hi Rakesh, thanks for your how to’s on PeopleSoft. I am a middleware engineer but have never had to support a PSFT environment. I’d like to know if there is any documentation, web articles, or your advice on editing configuration files instead of using the PSFT Tools? For example, is there a server.xml type of file that is used to define db connection parameters, pool, etc… ?
