Understanding Remote Data Access
Remote Data Access is a feature used in your PeopleSoft environment if you use the Data Transformer feature available with many PeopleSoft applications, as part of Enterprise Components.
Oracle develops, certifies, and tests remote data access using the drivers provided by the supported DBMS vendors. JDBC drivers are either supplied with the database product that you already have, or can be obtained separately from your database vendor. Using these drivers ensures a predictable and well supported environment, with less potential for interoperability issues.
Note: These setup instructions for configuring a JDBC driver on the application and batch servers are needed only if you use remote database sources for the Data Transformer feature of common components. Do not install the driver otherwise.
