How to Create Oracle Application Server 10g Clusters
Oracle Application Server consists of many components that can be deployed in distributed topologies. The underlying paradigm used to enable high availability for Oracle Application Server middle-tier is clustering, which unites various Oracle Application Server components in certain permutations to offer scalable and unified functionality, and redundancy should any of the individual components fail. Clustering components of a system together allows the components to be viewed functionally as a single entity from the perspective of a client. Several types of clusters can exist with Oracle Application Server components. The procedure to create and configure a DCM-Managed Oracle Application Server Cluster using File-based Repository for mid-tier is documented in this paper.
