2.0 out of 5 stars very basic 8 Aug 2008
A basic text about the OAS, contains a very small amount of useful information but doesn't go into enough detail or cover most of the questions that I had about OAS. I bought it but I wouldn't recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic OAS guide 24 July 2010
Like the other reviewers have said this is just a basic guide to the OAS. There are sections of the book that look like they have just repeated what was in the Oracle guides themselves without adding anything else to the discussion. My main reasons for buying the book was to learn something about performance tuning/monitoring of OAS. While there are some useful things that I have picked up there is not enough information on how to interpret the figures or how to improve performance.

Like the last reviewer, I don't think the book is detailed enough. I haven't read the whole book but have read sections when I have had to perform certain tasks. The backup and recovery section wasn't helpfull at all and I found a lot more usefull information on Oracle's own site.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice Job 28 Aug 2005
By Zafer Aktan - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have taken the iAS 10 Admin I course from Oracle, and wish that I read this book prior to the class. I found it very valuable especially if you are deploying iAS 10g (9.0.4) on Linux. I highly recommend the book to iAS administrators/DBA's.

3.0 out of 5 stars Summary of the White Papers 24 Feb 2005
By CupOJava - Published on
As an administrator/implementor of these systems, there are many aspects to administering the 10gAS system. Although the authors do make reference the book intends to simplify the rather large amount of documentation, it falls short of a complete guide.

It is good starting point for a default implementation--detailed installation steps, with moderate emphasis on design (ex. touching on distributed administration and delegation). Thus provides adequate groundwork.

The forefront of administration of this product is design choices. For example, the Internet Directoy piece is major component to the architecture--its design greatly impacts administration of the entire system. Perhaps this book was not intended to be a design resource (since it is designated an "Administration Handbook"), but administration in the field of application servers is highly dependent upon design decisions.

The book would be a fair addition to a reference library, but not necessary if one is willing to sift through the vendor "White Paper" documentation--as large and convoluted as it may be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not bad! 30 May 2006
By Dominic Sputo - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book covers how to configure, install and administrate Oracle Application Server 10g infrastructure on Windows Server 2003, Linux and UNIX. I felt that it was a good book and overall I have little ill to say about it. The examples are well written and do a good job of reinforcing what you read in the handbook. You read a little then do an example, then read some more, then add to the example and so on. You will need a solid understanding on Linux and UNIX to complete the exercises and material in this book. This book is definitely not for beginners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Choice 15 Oct 2009
By Jon Clendenen - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As anyone who has ever tried to install Oracle products on Linux can tell you, the process is not as simple as clicking on a little install icon. There are security parameters to set, packages to verify, memory parameters to change, and users and groups to configure. The step-by-step instructions in this book do a great job of walking you through the process of installation and configuration.

By C. W. Naslund - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book to use for beginners in the administration of OAS 10g. It covers the basics well and provides enough examples to allow the user to get a good grasp on how to install and implement the application.
