There is a great book, I believe the authors are even on this list.. Its called: Oracle Applications DBA Field Guide by Elk Phelps and Paul Jackson. ISBN: 978-1-59059-644-9

It may not go into as much detail as you'd like but this is the best book I have found yet. We have another here but I haven't had a chance to read it, so I don't know if its any good. Its called Oracle 11i E-Business Suite from the Front Lines by April J. Wells. Its on my reading list tho.

Subject: Background information on Apps technology

What is a good place to go to get information on the Oracle Apps technology stack? I'm thinking of the type of information that for the Oracle database is covered by the concepts manual (or by something like Tom Kyte's latest book) - stuff like what the database processes are, what is an instance, etc etc. For Apps, I'm not even sure I know the right questions to ask, but I'm guessing that things like the following would be covered:

I'm not even sure I'm asking the right sorts of thing, but I feel that there must be some sort of basic level of understanding of the technology that I should be able to grasp before starting to fiddle with things :-)

I've never found any courses or books that address this, which surprises me, as it seems pretty fundamental. But maybe I'm just not asking the right questions? Or is it simply such a big area that the expectation is that you specialise on one particular bit (like Financials, or HR)?

Feeling a bit confused, and grateful for any help,

Paul Moore.
