I am very new to Oracle Apps , in part of my learning first of all i would like to know the architecture properly .
I need clarification and confirmations to my understanding
1. Oracle apps is like any WAR ,EAR applications installed in an application server .
2. Oracle application server (10.1.3) = Oracle Containers for J2EE (App server) + Oracle HTTP server (web server) ,
3. EBS architecture uses 10.1.3 app server as HTTP server ( reverse proxy ) for lo-gin and as Apps server to host forms and reports.
4.What is the use of 8.0.6/10.1.2 ORACLE_HOME
Please see "Oracle E-Business Suite Concepts" manual, it answers all your questions.
