When you upgrade a PeopleSoft Application you need to execute Compare report to define which objects you want to keep or upgrade.
This is also very valuable to understand what was customized by your Company.
But the full database compare process can take some time that you need to plan ... here is an example by object types in hour, for a total of 4 hours and 34 minutes.

Note: in step 2/2 we will compare a Vanilla HRMS 9.1 and Production HRMS 9.0

Here is the detailed duration for Compare report between Vanilla HRMS 9.0 and Production HRMS 9.0:

0 tables displayed with error message o.d.db.DBUtil closed connection in SQL Developer 3.0.04

Whe I try to list the tables in my PeopleSoft SYSADM schema, no tables are listed and I have the following error message: o.d.db.DBUtil closed connection

Warning, unhandled exception: Closed Connection

The problem occurs when SQL Developer 3.0.04 connects to a limited privilege schema via a shared server connection. The workaround is to connect using a dedicated server connection.

for reference:
BUG 12382135 - NO TABLES SHOWN IN NAV has been fixed and will be available in the next released version
