Resource Access Descriptors (RADs) are used by Forms and Reports when Single Sign-On (SSO) is configured for the products. The RAD name matches a specific configuration section in the formsweb.cfg. The RAD contains specific DB connect information such as username, password and DB connect string and is normally associated with a specific OID user. See for information about default RAD as this is a special type of RAD. If Oracle Delegated Administration Services (DAS) is available, RADs can easily be created in 11g OID using a GUI interface.
