Coming from a web background before using PeopleSoft I'm always wondering how PSFT compares to other technologies. One thing it lacks is the ability to do a RESTful web service. I'm trying to find a workable solution and would love to hear if anyone else has any experience doing this.
I found this article ("will peoplesoft support rest web services") about why PSFT can't be used as a RESTful web service. I also found another document on Oracle's site published in May 2011 titled "PeopleSoft Update and Investment Strategy May 2011" which talks about things to be done in the next 5 years in version 9.2 and 9.3. This doesn't help anyone out right now so there needs to be a better solution.
I have an idea on how to create something using the existing integration broker functionality and a custom JSP script to transform your REST data into a PSFT structured XML message.
Anyone have some better ideas?
