For EBS, there are notes on https://support.oracle.com You *must* follow those instructions. They also include the specific tools to use -- EBS comes with it's own cloning scripts as tools.

thanks for replying me,hemant i know EBS comes with it's own cloning scripts and i already did cloning using scripts.But i dnt know how to use rman online backup to clone db tier ,after cloning db tier using rman online backup do i need to run preclone script on dbtier?
You cannot use RMAN to clone the Apps tier of the EBS and you may use RMAN only on the DB tier. For a complete backup, as mentioned by Hemant K Chitale, you will have to use the rapid clone utility.
To perform a rapid clone using RMAN there are plenty of step by step instructions in google which may guide in addition to support.oracle.com, Let me google that for you
