To explain the basic steps behind configuring virtual hosts with Oracle 
Application Server 10g, focusing on the Oracle HTTP Server, and referencing
specific areas of Oracle Documentation to accomplish the necessary steps
applicable to other components.

This document was originally written for version 9.0.4, and has been considered
for relevance of current versions. Since Oracle HTTP Server virtual hosting has
not changed between versions, its still relevant. However, in newer versions, there
are more components and more dependencies to consider.  This Note explains how 
to setup and test a Virtual Host in the Oracle HTTP Server, but how it is used 
across the Oracle Application Server would depend on your implementation. It is
always recommended to refer to the Oracle Documentation for all steps. This 
Note will lead into the required Oracle Documentation to follow.
This article's intention is not to provide all Virtual Host configuration
steps. Please see the proper documentation for the actual steps. This will
be either the Oracle HTTP Server or Oracle Web Cache Documentation, whichever
is performing the virtual hosting. This document will outline the steps 
allowing all OracleAS components to work together with a virtual hosting setup.

Note that in a Virtual Hosting setup, each situation can be different. No one
short document can comprehensively cover each scenario for definite step-by-step
