A favicon (short for favorites icon), also known as a website icon, shortcut icon, url icon, or bookmark icon is a 16×16, 32×32 or 64×64
pixel square icon associated with a particular website. A web designer can create such an icon and install it into a website by several means,
and most graphical web browsers will then make use of it. Browsers that provide favicon support typically display a page's favicon
in the browser's address bar and next to the page's name in a list of bookmarks. Browsers that support a tabbed document interface typically
show a page's favicon next to the page's title on the tab. So You can do it for Oracle EBS Applications.

1. Place favicon.ico you like in $INST_TOP/portal

2. Restart Oracle HTTP Server.

# cd $INST_TOP/admin/scripts
# ./adapcctl.sh status
# ./adapcctl.sh stop
# ./adapcctl.sh start

3. Login Oracle Application by the Browser.

You can see an icon you placed.
