What is the common or best practice for Oracle Wallet management when more and more webservices are being used?  Do most keep a single wallet for all applications/certificates or is it better to have a standard to create a separate directory/wallet for each application?  What sorts of maintenance and security issues should be considered?

Thanks. Will read. Was hoping to get some real world experience feedback, but this should be enough info. It is really the DBAs and systems team decision in the end, but I can give them some input.

The solution was to read the documentation.  Thanks for pointing me to this. Sometimes it's nice to get real life examples as well as read documentation though. For example, some things to consider, if a service is discontinued, it may be easier to clean up the wallet if they are kept separate. If not, there is the risk of deleting root certificates that other applications might use.  Naming conventions of certificates might help if they reflect the project name they are supporting, etc.etc.  This doesn't really all fit nicely into the documentation.
