    Hello,

    Im new to oracle apps..
    I have been working on Oracle for the last 6.5 years as a software developer.
    I have been working on Oracle 7.x, 8 and 10g database for back-end and Oracle Forms, Reports D2K, 6i and 10g for front-end.

    I would now like to upgrade myself to oracle apps, but dont know how to proceed.
    I know that oracle apps is basically a collection of ready made applications like Financial, HRMS, etc.
    But, I cant make out how to start learning the same.
    What do i need to install on my machine to practice/learn?
    Which books do I need to refer to?
    And most importantly, how to get myself certified as a Oracle apps developer, as I couldnt find any Oracle certification exam for the same. :confused:

    Any help will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey Sadik,

    Thanks a bunch for the starter article...
    Understood the concept.
    You have said that "Different modules are organized into different schemas like PO, INV, GL schemas etc."
    Does this mean that if a user wants to use Ora Apps, they will have to have these schema only in their database, i.e. are the schema names fixed?

    Also, what should I refer to next?

    Oracle Applications comprise the applications software or business software of Oracle Corporation. The term refers to the non-database (non-technology) parts of Oracle Corporation's software portfolio.

    Oracle Corporation initially launched its application suite with financials software in the late 1980s. The offering as of 2009[update] extends to supply-chain management, human-resource management, warehouse-management, customer-relationship management, call-center services, product-lifecycle management, and many other areas. Both in-house expansion and the acquisition of other companies have vastly expanded Oracle Corporation's application-software repertoire.
