Back Cover

Oracle 11i E-Business Suite from the Front Lines is the first book to compile the tips, techniques, and practical advice for administering Oracle E-Business Suite 11i. The author examines Active Directory Utilities, patching, cloning, and the new features that 11i brings to the market. The book benefits those with limited experience with Oracle Application but with more extensive background in Oracle Database Administration. This volume is valuable to systems administrators or DBAs who have experience with older versions of Oracle Financials and want to expand their knowledge to include the changes inherent in 11i.

The book details the steps in installing a new 11i environment, and explains the process of upgrading from a 10.7 or an 11.0.3 release. It also explores the techniques and results of migrating from one maintenance release of 11i to another.

This analysis offers you real-world hints and recommendations to help you with day-to-day tuning, troubleshooting, and maintenance and will help you deliver reliable service to your end users. It is also a helpful tool for managers and co-workers to understand the daily challenges that Apps DBAs face.

There have been many people who have helped and encouraged me in bringing this book to life. This is the book that I would have given anything to have been able to find when I was looking down the long road to go live.

To Tricia Maupin, I would like to say thank you for letting me learn the hard way and for standing behind me and standing up for me when it mattered most. And to Arnie Goetz, thank you for saving me from my own good intentions.

I would like to thank Rich O'Hanley from CRC Press for giving me the chance to bring this dream to life. You have given me my big break, a chance that I never thought I would get. You have been there through all the questions. I hope this is just the beginning of our relationship together.

Rachel Carmichael, thank you for being brutally honest, but I did it anyway!

Mom, you told me I could do anything if I put my mind to it. I did it.

Most of all, I would like to thank my husband, Larry, and my children, Adam and Amandya. They have put up with me getting up early in the mornings and writing when no one else in the house was awake and going to sleep earlier than I needed to so I could get up and do it again. You have put up with me putting in long hours on my days off and weekends writing and working on this book when I know you wanted me to do other things with you. Larry, you have always encouraged me. Even when I was not sure that I could do it, you never doubted me. You pushed me when I did not think I could go on with it. To Adam and Amandya, I would like to say, this book is proof that if you have a dream and you always hold onto that dream, no matter how long, it really can come true. Never give up on your dreams and never let anyone make you believe that you cannot accomplish them.
