Hello,

What is Advance PeopleCode? Does it contains Classes (Object Oriented Programming)? How can we use classes in PeopleCode when we have so many built in functions in peoplecode?

Thanks

hi,
While I am no expert in peoplecode classes, there is no such thing as advance peoplecode.
Yes, now in peoplecode , one can use application packages which contain classes. Its p/s attempt at introducing oo programming in peoplecode.

However, bear in mind that function libraries and app packages coexist. and in classes you can call stand alone functions.

Yes and it looks a lot like Java ;)

I could have not said it any better. PeopleBooks actually have a section comparing Application Packages (where classes live) to FUNCLIBs (where you store functions). It is not difficult to use Application Packages and classes, after all, it is just PeopleCode!

I will be posting an article about how to create an application package along with a class and sub-class in the near future. Stay tuned!

Hey CompShack,

That would be very nice. I'm really interested in App Packages. :-)

Thanks,
