The primary purpose of the Process Type definition is to globally define the command line, parameter list, working directory, and other general parameters for a specific process type. Consequently, the information does not need to be duplicated for each process definition of the same type. You can vary these global parameters as needed, depending on the target operating system and database platform.


PeopleSoft Process Scheduler supports all operating systems and database environments that are supported by PeopleSoft application products. However, not every operating system and database environment combination supports every process type. For example, Crystal and PS/nVision process types are supported on Microsoft Windows operating systems only; SQR, COBOL, and PeopleSoft Application Engine can run on other operating systems as well.



In this topic, you will review process types.
