You could create an ADMIN user and grant the user the privileges : CREATE SESSION
GRANT ANY OBJECT PRIVILEGE Thus, the ADMIN user is not a DBA (does not have the DBA role) and, itself, cannot create any objects (Tablespaces, Tables, Sequences, Packages etc) other than creating other Users. (But then ADMIN can grant any privilege to a user that it creates --- so that is a serious loophole !)
