Oracle R12 Applications DBA Field Guide is the second edition of the guide updated to provide the details needed to administer Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12. The book includes guidelines and references to guide you through the management and deployment of Oracle Applications Release 12. Included in the guide are topics ranging from architecture, configuration, installation, cloning, patching, monitoring, troubleshooting to performance tuning. The new edition provides essentials for administering the updated Applications tier and technology stack, including Oracle 10gAS and Oracle Database 11g. Even for the experienced database administrator, Oracle Applications are complicated to administer, and most documentation that is available is difficult to find and understand. Whether you're an experienced Oracle Applications DBA or a new to Oracle Applications, (perhaps experienced with PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, or Siebel), this book will enable and ease the administration and efficiency of your day-to-day tasks.
