The database engine or Database Management System (DBMS) is not a component provided by Stat. Because Stat supports several different database platforms, the DBMS is purchased and implemented independently of Stat.
Stat provides advanced change management support for all PTools-based PeopleSoft applications version 8.0 and higher. System Administrators define and maintain the connections between Stat and individual PeopleSoft environments. This entails specifying in Stat various database login IDs and passwords and other DBMS-specific parameters.
In addition to the native PeopleSoft proprietary object types that Stat supports by default, system administrators can configure Stat to support any type of file object used in PeopleSoft environments.
Stat provides a complete change management solution for Oracle Applications environments. This includes the file objects and data objects native to Oracle Applications as well as application patches. As with PeopleSoft, system administrators define and maintain the connections between Stat and individual Oracle Applications environments.
The Stat Oracle Agents are background daemons that run on each Oracle Applications server. They receive requests from the Stat Central Agent, process the requests, and send resulting information back to the Stat Central Agent.
