I am new to Oracle Spatial ..Did not even know it existed till now.

Could somebody point out RESOURCES(books,sites,people,forums etc) for
a) getting familiar with Oracle Spatial
b) performing TUNING activities on an Oracle Spatial instance
c) performing database administration activities on an Oracle Spatial
instance.
d) troubleshooting any problems encountered in Oracle Spatial

Any help will be appreciated ...

thanks a lot
