The Fluid UI is one of the most exciting new features PeopleSoft has delivered in years. With Fluid UI, app developers build responsive user interfaces that run on smartphones, mini tablets, tablets and even desktops/laptops using the same PeopleTools components, pages, records and peoplecode they’ve been using for years. There’s one difference, with classic PeopleSoft, the UI is pixel perfect, meaning what you see on the page is exactly what you built in page designer. With Fluid UI the contents of a page is based on styles, and may change depending on the size of the device. It’s all still HTML, just a new way of laying out the fields.
PeopleSoft is gearing up for this big change and will deliver a new set of responsive, mobile ready applications soon. In keeping with PeopleSoft's continuous delivery strategy, the new content will be delivered in a PUM instance, available on the 9.2 product line.
A lot of developers from customers and partners will want to get up to speed and become familiar with how Fluid UI works. An easy path is to wait until the application content is available, and use that content to learn from. For those that just can’t wait, we’ll start a mini-blog series that shows you how to build your first Fluid component. Stay tuned. We’re off to talk about the great new features of 8.54 at Reconnect in Chicago, but after that we’ll begin showing you how it all works.
