Having attended Oracle Open world session conducted by Jim ( for the past few years) , I was very eager to get a copy of this book.

It is an excellent book for seasoned peoplesoft programmers who would like to learn something above and beyond what peoplesoft delivers and use javascript/java within peoplesoft.

It is loaded with examples and each chapter builds on the next. It covers quite a few advanced topics.

The book will not teach you basics. So if you are trying to learn Peoplesoft or any specific application, please do not buy the book. Buy this when you have a strong understanding of what peoplesoft has to deliver.

To a great extent, the book assumes that you know Peoplesoft as well as java, javascript( even if you have rudimentary knowledge, you will find value in this book. )

I am still working my way thru the books which is sure to become my reference book for a long time to come.

I am extremely happy with my purchase.

If you are a seasoned peoplesoft programmer, I highly recommend you buy the book.You will not be disappointed.

This is hands down the best book available for advanced PeopleSoft programmers. Each chapter builds upon the one before so it's very much a training guide as well as a reference manual. The great thing is that once you reach the end of it (no I haven't yet, I'm still working through it) you'll have some really nice bits of code you can use. The chapter on AWE (Approval Workflow Engine) was particularly well done I thought.

If you work on PeopleSoft software professionally and are serious about development you should really have this book in your collection. It opened a whole new world of possibilities for me and I've been using PeopleSoft for many years.

Here are some more observations:

1) To get the most out of this book you should have access to a PeopleSoft database that you can try things out on. It is heavily based on teach-by-example where concepts are introduced and then reinforced by code that you create and run in PeopleSoft. Actually typing the code for yourself will strengthen your understanding of the concepts presented as well as give you visual feedback.

2) A lot of the book covers Java, JavaScript and AJAX integrations into PeopleSoft. The author assumes that you already know these languages and does not attempt to teach them to you, other than at a very high level. So don't buy this book expecting to learn those languages.

3) If you are new to PeopleSoft development you won't get much out of this book. The target audience here is the seasoned PeopleSoft developer.

4) Many of the topics introduced are not documented anywhere else - at least to my knowledge. This makes the book particularly valuable in my view.

5) If object based PeopleCode is something new to you then I would get this book for that alone. It's covered very nicely.

I wish the Kindle version was available when I bought it but, oh well :-)

There I said it ... Sorry, I keep trying to like this book, but each time I go to it for information on an advanced topic, I get little from it. Just tonight I looked at the chapter on real time integrations. What did I get? As in other chapters, an overly complex example of something I would never use in this case containing about a dozen pages of JAVA code. Also, too much of the examples are "do this, do that, type this" without a thorough explanation of the concepts behind them. The book's title is 'tips' and 'techniques'. I consider tips to be quick and to the point, not endless pages of code that would take hours of study. I will go back to searching the internet and PeopleBooks to find my answers to using Integration Broker for real world problems.

Nice book that covers advanced topics in PeopleSoft Application Development. This is not entry level book and I would recommend that you have ample development experience before you attempt to read/try this book. The content is explained nicely and with working code that can be tried as shown in the book. If you are reading this review, it means you are a PeopleSoft developer. I also like the blogs that the author has and follow his blogs regularly. I would recommend purchasing this book if you want to know how to extend your PeopleSoft application (beyond what is presented in PeopleBooks).

Can't say I am overly impressed with this book.

It is wordy, but has little code in it. Lots and lots of English paragraphs explaining what a more concise author would have expressed in a third the space. Because it is so spread out, it is difficult to quickly come to grasp with what a particular technology brings to the table.

Some of the examples are pretty advanced, to the point where I struggled to follow some unfamiliar subjects, despite having worked in PeopleTools for 15+ years. Yet, the author insists on also tagging along folksy programming wisdom to people who are presumably pretty senior programmers. So we get a lecture about "Spartan Programming" (i.e. tight code). Or "Fluent Interfaces". Sorry, please get to the point, don't digress.

So it is never really clear who the book is for. Junior PS staff? No, too advanced, not enough _relevant_ PeopleTools background. Senior staff? Why all the basic programming background and roundabout explanations? It might be a better fit for a senior PeopleSoft person not very familiar with other programming environments. Possible - some PS people show a surprising lack of general programming savvy at times (for example, no one apparently manages to explain USEEDIT values in terms of bit mask testing and especially not w.r.t. SQL bit mask operators). Still, that's an odd choice to make and somewhat patronizing.

On a Kindle, all this fluff means that the book is anything but a quick read. You can read several pages before seeing any code. Then you might see 2 or 3 full pages of code, lots of which is not that relevant. Not at all the presentation I prefer and I would have avoided this book had I known about that.
