Since they are OS objects, you should be able to use the time tested cpio or tar commands; or possibly zip, if you prefer.

Thanks,

That means, we simply need to copy APPL_TOP?
Like database, is there any concept of HOT and COLD backups?

The OS objects are not updated by the application users. So they are pretty static, unless another administrator is also working at the same time and making changes to application configurations. We can consider the application software as cold always, except during patching / upgrade time.
