PeopleTools Tip: PeopleCode Dump

Application Designer has an option to search through the text of the code, but it takes way too long to search the whole system on a regular basis. Thankfully, Application Designer also has a way to dump all of the code to a text file.

From Application Designer, choose Edit > Find In…

Next, enter a semicolon(;) for the search text and check the option “Save PeopleCode to File”

Important: This will take a long time and a lot of memory to finish. So, increase your virtual memory and let it run overnight. If you have a team of developers, have one person do the dump and put it on a network location where everyone can view it.

If you don’t enough memory, you may get an error message like this:

If so, go to the control panel and open the System icon.  Go to the Advanced tab and click the Settings button under performance.  Under the “Advanced” tab in the performance options dialog, change the virtual memory.  The steps to increase the memory might be slightly different depending on your flavor of Windows.
