 thanks for the input, but I'd want to think that there's gotta be a better 
reason than that.  With all the knowledge they have about databases and stuff, 
creating reasonably complete apps should not be that difficult.  
 Is it possible that, perhaps, they did not want the real world to reverse 
engineer their apps?  I'm sure, with enough persistence and looking through 
trace files etc, one would be able to accomplish that, so, that's likely not 
the reason....
 But I guess, having a 14,000 tables across the enterprise--for the entire 
APPS-- one would easily see the monopoly & business opportunities ... which is 
probably, not a bad thing, for us, Oracle-ites 
 Which reminds me, has anyone successfully installed the entire spectrum of Ora 
APPS on Windows, including the database (10g, I presume), within 2gb of RAM 
(Win 32 bit)?  -- for testing purposes that is....  or, better yet, within 

 anyway  -- a newbie's (to Ora Apps) rant  ;-)

Oracle has been good writing database software but far from it with
database applications.
