    Why is Oracle Client needed?

      Hi

      May I know why do I need to install Oracle client in another desktop, whereby other desktop without installing Oracle Client and PeopleSoft Client, they also can access into the URL.

          +(still on your Oracle client ??)+
          For administration and development purpose, if you need Application Designer and/or DataMover then you most likely need an Oracle client.
          The frontend application (reachable within URL in your browser) is only the the business people.
          This has nothing to do with each other.

          That said, according to your past threads, I strongly believe you need to take some time to understand the general Peoplesoft architecture. Asking question over here won't enough.

            Do you mean by reading manual guide or go for the course? So do you mean that with Oracle client, I am able to design it? Do you mean that?

              I don't know your background, but abviously not Peoplesoft. I don't know where you are from and the comany you are working for. I don;t know what the company you are working for is expecting from you, but they must understand that you need much more help than asking on a forum for learning. Do they realize that ? Could be very uncomfortable situation for you doing something one something you don't know...

              Without Oracle client, you cannot access to the database. Without acces to the database, you cannot run sql (if you do customization - new or modification of existing). Without access to the database, you cannot run DMS (import/export/update/delete...).

                  If you are access PeopleSoft via a web URL, Oracle client installation is not required.

                    Go ahead and read the entire Peopletools installation guide for Oracle. When you read it, you may have a clue about Peoplesoft architecture.
