          Your answer is google with "difference between oracle dba and oracle apps dba" (without quotes).

          Both have their own separate pros and cons, different area of expertise and passion.

          You may get couple of good links, read them, try to understand them and think which is best suited to you, your choice, your environment, available resources and your past IT level.

          Best of Luck for your career.

            You should pursue a career in a field that interests and challenges you personally, otherwise you would be unhappy and you would make your employer unhappy.

              Define "good for me"

              Define "Oracle app DBA"

              Define "Oracle DBA"

              And so it is with job titles.
