I have just gone through your blog entries and I definitely agree with what you have to say about the current trend. Don't really know how much more time this trend will continue. I also kind of read through the paper that you talk about re-developing the OE app.
The reason why I asked this question in the first place is that I am a PL/SQL developer and considering a move into DBA arena simply because the back-end application development work seems to have just withered away.
