Mobile Application Platform

The PeopleSoft Mobile Application Platform (MAP) enables developers to build applications that provide a completely different experience than those built using traditional PeopleTools components and pages. Applications built with MAP can include media queries that allow applications to scale from smartphones to mini-tablets to full-size tablets and that adjust the user interface for the device perspective that is being used. The framework allows you to develop applications with touch interfaces that look and operate similarly to native interfaces on mobile devices. MAP reads and writes data through RESTful web services that pass through the integration gateway and provide the communication layer between MAP applications and the database.

MAP supports a web-only development model for the majority of the application development. The document-based data structures, page layouts, and styles are all defined in the PeopleSoft Pure Internet Architecture. Business logic processing is done through PeopleTools application class PeopleCode built in PeopleSoft Application Designer. Additional user-interface libraries can be easily plugged in and accessed on pages.
