    Thanks for that.
    What special tools do you use for Apps DBA...?
    And how can we start working on Concurrent Managers.
    I didn't find any good documentation on concurrent managers.

    Can you help with that.
    Please suggest where to read about concurrent managers.

    Wink Application Oracle DBA

    Kiruba,
    I think your question was more around 'generic' application oracle DBA. An application DBA is a DBA who supports DBA activities in the context of applications running against the Database. An application DBA analysis the Application logical datamodel and converts it into a physical data model, recommends and implements performance enhancements in the database like indexing, database physical characteristics like PCTFREE, PCTUSED coming more from the application requirements. A systems/maintenace/administrative DBA is one who works outside the application(s) context. Hope that explains.

    To my mind, all DBAs have a requirement to work within the context of the application their database serves. How can you administer a database without understanding the application?
    If I see an advert for an Applications DBA, that to me means they are looking for someone with E-Business\PeopleSoft experience.
