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
