It would be if your users use a VT terminal emulator to access the application. Be aware though that a combination of Character/Smart client could exist... In this case, it does not matter though as the work that you would do will be the same.

If you used any form-type interface within a Browser, then it would be NCA. There are some web based elements though, such as Self Server Web Apps. The difference is that NCA works like a form (Enter/Execute Query for e.g.) while the SSWA is a pure Web-type interface.  

> How would I identify Smart Client?

The Smart Client set consists of the Application (Forms) working off either a 'Client' PC. In most cases, this is via a shared service such as Citrix - on a Windows box in any case. In other words a very thick (smart!?!?!) client.

Scott S - In many cases, the Apps SysAdmin performs the work on the 'applmgr' and related APPS/APPLSYS accounts after the Db/Appltop copy and the DBA is not involved.
