Hi Roger

Book recommended by David is pretty good and concise. There is one more from Oreilly that I've used ( Besides these, Metalink will be your friend and companion , specially their how-to articles in Knowledge Base.

Having worked on Oracle Application Server for 5 years now, a word of caution... the concepts are *usually* the same across different versions of the application server, but it is possible that quite a few things that were available or worked in one version will not be there in the next. Just as an example, version 10.1.2 is an entire suite of products (J2EE, LDAP, SSO, Reports, Forms, Discoverer, Wireless, Portal, Web Cache etc etc) each having its own set of configuration files and logs (theres a lot to learn J ). But the next version (atleast numerically) is 10.1.3, which is a sea change (only has J2EE, different architecture etc). So just make sure that you read up on version-specific documentation for the detailed stuff.

My 2 cents...

"Oracle Application Server 10g Administration Handbook"

There's a good chance you'll only use a fraction of the available components, so just try to figure out what those are, and then start reading up here:

I went to the App Server Admin I class last year and it was okay, but you could learn all that and more just by reading the standard docs and installing and playing around with the software on a test machine.

Jared sent some good Oracle E-biz links, but I think that is a good deal different from Oracle App Server.
