    Been there.

    Done that.

    Hated every second of it.

    You will have to understand everything about every Oracle product that has been produced since about 1994 to understand Oracle Applications since just about every one is somewhere in Oracle Apps. Get good at patching, as you will patch your applications environment at least weekly.

    you dont need accounting. financials knowledge to maintain a business suite database

    it's a quite complex product, the patching is not easy, dependency is a nightmare

    You start reading the documents for sysadmin on metalink.You shoudl know about apache forms server reports server and Concurent manager .

    There sre some presentations at oracle world which will give you a high level overview of the technology stack

    You might be ineterested in reading about rapid clone utility also.

    regards
