I am trying to decide whether I should
take the exams for the Oracle APPLICATION DEVELOPER track versus the 10g DBA track.

Pros for DBA:
-10g OCA will only need one (1) exam as opposed to PL/SQL DEVELOPER OCA will require two (2) exams
-I do find coding/programming much more difficult than the DBA functional role as I have supported 11i

Con for DBA:
-By the time 12i comes around, then 10g may be outdated.  Given that, I am trying to see which is more markeatble both currently and in the long run -- 10g DBA vs. PL/SQL developer?

I think if you go for DBA track , it will be more valuable as far as getting job is concerned . You can always recertify . DBAs are one of the most highly paid individuals in the industry . I hope this helps
