Like everything else that has Oracle written on it, I have to install and configure it (we're a small team). 2 or 3 years ago, I installed a new version that doesn't require an infrastructure. What a relief. We only use the mod_plsql, some reports, very few forms and the WebCache. By the way, the WebCache is very effective. We use it for all static files and some plsql procedures.

Once you get it up and running (and it's not so bad without the infrastructure), it requires little attention. I apply the CPUs and that's almost it.

Hi List,

I've recently been enlisted as the admin for Oracle App Server 10gR2 and every day I'm realizing more and more how much effort this is going to require for setup and ongoing support. I have no prior App Server experience so this is no minor task for me to pick up. This is our company's first experience with OAS so we're trying to figure out whose responsibility it should be ultimately and I'm just curious what other shops typically do. Are any of you DBAs also being asked to take on OAS admin (similar to an "Apps DBA"), or do your shops have dedicated staff for this role, or another group that takes this on in addition to their primary role?
