A node is a source of HTML content. A node is a URL string that defines the entire database and server. It is used when the portal servlet attempts to retrieve content, whether internal PeopleSoft content or external references, and assemble pages.
The use of nodes simplifies PeopleCode programming because long URLs can be referred to by the appropriate node name. Some node names, such as HRMS, EPM, SA, FDM, and CRM, are preset in your portal. You can add additional nodes.
Note: Node names can consist of any combination of letters, digits, and underscores, but they must not contain any spaces or special characters.
