yes, i've definitely opened SRs with .... well, probably not the db but with the app server running in solaris zones. the ___workflow___ stuff is a bucket of worms, but it was an identical bucket of worms under a conventional solaris 9 machine. we ultimately ditched it.

there's some certification matrix out there which tells you what part of oracle works with zones and so on. last i looked it was 10.1 of the db, not 10.2. that was a while ago. app server i don't recall offhand.
