Following Oracle Corporation's focus on web technologies, companies are opting to web-enable their existing applications as part of the traditional upgrade process. Other companies are purchasing vendor-supplied web applications built with Oracle products. An essential component to Oracle's web-enabled applications is the Oracle Application Server 10g (OracleAS 10g). Support, maintenance, and problem resolution are often falling into the responsibility of the database administrator or other operational support personnel. Frequently, the person responsible for support has little or no web server support experience.
This paper will provide an introduction to the architecture of OracleAS 10g, the tools available for administration and basic troubleshooting. Additionally, the paper will cover deployment of simple java, Oracle PL/SQL and HTML applications.
