    How 2 become Oracle Apps DBA
    Sunday, July 30, 2006
    Register for R12 upgrade

    Are you looking for Apps DBA training ? ( Free Ofcourse )
    Are you a DBA and looking for Career or Job in Apps DBA ?
    Are a Oracle DBA and interested in Learning Oracle Apps or want to become Oracle Apps DBA ?

    then you are at right place

    Image taken from Application Architecture Document

    There is lot of Oracle Apps Training material available on net/Oracle Site at the same time lot of training Institutes are providing Oracle Apps DBA, Now its up to you if you want to learn E-Business Suite at your own or want a formal training as Apps DBA. Lets start with what all you should learn as an Oracle Apps DBA.

    First thing is you should be Good in Oracle Database Skills and I assume you are already very good as DBA or don't need any formal training as DBA. To become Oracle Apps DBA first and important thing is that you should be very well familiar with Oracle Applications/E-Business Suite Architecture . Give as much time as possible Architecture & understand all basic component . Its few , Webserver (Oracle-Apache), Forms, Reports, Concurrent Manager, Discoverer and Database. (Discoverer you can skip & can read later but remaining are building blocks of Oracle Applications. Now where to find basic Architecture and related Architecture ? this link contain E-Business Suite but its hell lot of guide & you will not be able to finish it until you die. So from here Open Guide "Oracle Applications Concept" & read chapter 1 only that too just page 1 to 19 ( Only 19 pages & your Basics is done ) I think its not much . If you understand any thing in that put a comment on this Blog & I 'll definately Explain or Can even mail you .
    So moving on to next part of your Oracle apps DBA training , you should know Installation. You can try installing oracle E-Business Suite on your test systems for that you can pick guide
    Oracle Applications Installation Guide: Using Rapid Install In documentation location mentioned above . This might sound tough for first time but believe me it pretty simple , Everything GUI ( You can ignore creating Staging for Dump but if you are a oracle DBA you can do it pretty well ) Now if you encounter any Issues in Installation you can create Metalink Tar or if you don't have metalink Account you can post questions in Oracle E-Business Suite Forum .
    So this conclude Two important aspects of your Oracle Apps DBA Training , I am again focusing on Architecture of Oracle Apps is very critical in APPS DBA Training. If you like above material & still want to read remaining parts of Oracle Apps Training like, AD Utilities for Patching (Very Important for DBA), Cloning, Upgrade wait for my Next Blog I will Update this blog as soon as I create tomorrow or day after , till that time clear your Oracle Apps Concept . Believe me learning Oracle Apps is very simple if you Study carefully & with Interest.
    Plsssssss leave comment.

    Now you can raise your doubts/questions/issue in forum at (Dedicated to Apps DBA's)

      Hi Atul,
      I am really touched the way you put togather facts for Apps DBA. You are in UK but due to your auspicious work, you have reached everywhere.
      I am certified 10g DBA and want to start Apps DBA. Where can I find books/references?


    • At 10:51 AM, Blogger Atul Kumar said…

      Thanks a lot .

      All Apps Guides are updated in above post itself at

    • At 5:22 PM, Blogger Dilesh said…

      Hi Atul,
      It is really nice to have your email so quick. I book marked the link for future reference. As a DBA, I have setup 9i, 10g databases from scratch and applied patches,performed backups and installed 10g Apps server and configured report servers. I have gone through Oracle Financial 10.7sc intensive training in India, will it help me in becoming Apps DBA? I am a really good developer as well and got certification for developer 6i Release 2. Now, looking to my exposure, will you please tell me what step should I follow to start ii1 Apps DBA? Do you think that classroom training is required for Apps DBA?

    • At 10:32 PM, Blogger Atul Kumar said…

      I think its more than enough. I would suggest you instead of class room teaching start with hands on Installation, patching & cloning 11i.

      Good luck for your Journey towards Apps DBA

      Thanks for your assurance. I wanted to know one more thing. Is it possible to configure HTTPS only for the login screen, so that the username and password can be pass through internet encrypted instead of clear text? My organization does not want to do any investment in procuring any certificates. Is it possible to accomplish this without making any investment?

      Waiting for your update....


    • At 8:05 PM, Blogger Atul Kumar said…

      Yes you can tweak around using sso. For free you cabn use test certificates comes free with oracle HTTP Certificates

    • At 5:22 AM, Blogger qAnand said…

      Thanks for the update Atul. But can you please elaborate? Probably a URL or a link in your site would help. We are not using SSO here.


    • At 7:21 AM, Blogger Atul Kumar said…

      Anand ,
      To be frank it is bit complicated (not very straight forward) I did some work on 10g AS Integration with Apps for SSO but I don't to post it on site at this minutes . Here is metalink note which you can refer metalink note

      233436.1 Installing Oracle Application Server 10g with Oracle E-Business Suite Release...

      & then configure SSL for HTTP Server on SSO (Infra tier).

      You have to study a lot for this

      Hi Atul,
      The Documentation will really help a beginner like me. I am a beginner in apps dba and I need to know if Oracle applications can be installed on a home PC ? I mean in one PC with a configuration of 512 MB with 40GB hard drive or do I need to look for a sever in Web, something like webhosting ? If so, which is my best option ?



    • At 9:39 AM, Blogger Atul Kumar said…

      I have been trying to self teach Oracle though I have completed SQL Fundamentals I and II with Oracle.

      My job at work is to build an application and it has been completed in Oracle Database Express. I now need to be able to print reports so I need to change to APEX. Would you mind helping me out with information on how to do this? I have downloaded APEX3.2but I dont understand how to proceed from there. Sorry, this must sound so easy to everyone else!

      Now finally I would like to enhance my career as Apps DBA.
      I got a better understanding from your site , but I would like to go for an Instructor led training , and from your site I found some institutes ( Ikon Infotech , Chennai) and booked my course.
      It's a 60hr course. Is it enough to learn Oracle Apps.
      Am I moving in the right track?

      This is a great blog! I've kept coming back to search for information.

      However, as I am really a newbie in this field by accident, I need to study the basic concepts and you've provided them in a quite practical way.

      Btw, I've searched for information on how to create users/responsibilities/request groups/menus through various sites but none have given me any clear idea yet.
      Sorry if it is not part of an Apps DBA duty, but I would love to read it on your blog (or if it's already somewhere posted, my apologies to ask).

      Hi Atul-
      I am an Oracle DBA and I really need to get an answer to my ques(that might sound silly). I am hired as an Oracle Apps DBA but here, they are using Oracle Application Server 10g and a little bit of work on Oracle Financials.
      My understanding is that an Oracle Apps DBA takes care of database and the various apps modules like financials etc. Is oracle application server also the responsibility of an Apps DBA. If not, who takes care of the application server. Or in simple words, can you tell me the difference between Oracle applicaiton server and the E-business suite! Thanks in advance.
      My confusion is that I am not able to understand that
