    What are the restrictions for named user licence?
    Suppose, I want to create only one database with many users to access the data (They will not have power to create/modify database/tables), Will the named user licence applicable for it. If not why?

    Do any one uses named user licence? In what situation people use named user licence?

    Please clarify the licensing terms.

    Exclamation update clarification!

    Is named user means
    # of concurrent user
    # of different Personel who will connect the database

    If based on # of personel connecting the database; can it be based on position name (is it transferable when I move out from thw position?)

    Every user connection to the DB is counted as named user. It might not have schema at all, or all users using one account to login.

    Usually, is used in non web server environment. As soon as you have Web Server connecting to Oracle DB (with or w/o connection pool) the license switches to CPU based one.
