I mentioned in a previous post about our recent “Extending PeopleSoft with Java” webinar. Although you can use any Java development environment when extending PeopleSoft with Java, we wanted to put the brand new Oracle JDeveloper 11gR1 through it’s paces. It’s nice that we can use the same IDE that the Fusion application developers are using right now to work with existing PeopleSoft applications (we used PeopleTools 8.46 with HCM 8.9 in the webinar). Try hooking up the latest PeopleTools to PeopleSoft 7.5 and see how far you get 🙂
To start with, you’ll want to download the JDeveloper installer. For the purposes of this blog entry (and a few followups in the future) we’re going to use the JDeveloper Studio install since that includes everything that we’ll need (at the cost of a larger download).
After the download finished, we ran jdevstudio11111install.exe. It takes a bit for the installer to get everything prepared, but it’ll show you it’s progress along the way.
Once the installer is ready, there are some straightforward prompts to fill in. First we’ll tell it where to install. Since we don’t have any other Oracle Fusion Middleware products installed here we’ll just accept the default directory of c:oraclemiddleware
The installer will then give the option of a complete or custom install. We’ll select custom so we can get a peek at all of the various different options. We don’t need the ADF Framework or the WebLogic Server parts for this blog entry, but we will install those anyways since we will be using them in the future.
A few more prompts (we accepted the bundled Java JDK since this environment didn’t have Java 6 installed previously, and we chose to start WebLogic manually instead of setting it up as a service).
Then it’s a quick review of everything to be installed and we’ll be ready to go.
After the installer has done it’s work, we’ll take it up on it’s offer for launching Quick Start. Quick Start provides a bunch of links to help you get started. We’ll just go ahead and launch JDeveloper Studio from here though.
Completing the installation and launching everything provides a good stopping point for this post. We’ll write some code in the next installment.
