CHAPTER 1: An Overview

C H A P T E R  1

An Overview

PeopleSoft is packaged business application software for larger companies. This chapter provides an introduction and overview of PeopleSoft, its technology, and its history. We take a very high-level look at some of the major parts that make up today's PeopleSoft systems: the database (in this case, Oracle) that stores both the PeopleSoft application data and much of the application code, the Tuxedo Application Server, and the PeopleTools integrated development environment that is used for most aspects of developing and administering PeopleSoft applications.

We then step through the overall architecture of a PeopleSoft system and see how it has evolved from the initial client/server architecture to the modern four-tier Internet architecture.
