RE: Oracle Applications patches

I presume that is 500 per module and there must be about 30 modules by now, with perhaps an average of 7 or 8 modules on each installation

The normal method is to install a full patchset which is a collection of a number of patches (i.e GL Patchset J etc). At sites where I have worked adding a patch is usually the last resort and it has to be a significant problem before the patch is applied. A new patchset install normally involves a lot of testing if there has been any form of customisation of the application.

Adpatch will become your best friend :)

I did a quick search in Metalink for Oracle Applications patches... and Metalink returned 500 items!

Are there patches that are more critical than others?

I have a copy of Oracle Applications for NT, I just want to learn to install it, configure, and play with it a little.

(500!  Unbelievable).
