An application container consists of an application root and one or more
application PDBs. The container stores data for a specific application, which
contains common data and metadata. You can upgrade or patch the
application once in the application root, and then synchronize the application
PDBs with the root.

Create Application root:
Login to the CDB root as SYSDBA and create an application root named shan_app.

Configure the tnsnames.ora file to allow connecting to the application root through the listener.

Install an application in the application root
Login to the application root as SYSDBA.
conn sys/oracle@shan_app as sysdba
Begin installing the HR_APP application.
Note: When you install a new application in an application root, you always start with this statement.
ALTER PLUGGABLE DATABASE APPLICATION hr_app BEGIN INSTALL '1.0';
Create the application tablespace (HR_TBS) and create the application owner user (HR).
The application owner (HR) should have the privileges enough to control the application objects, like the application tables, indexes, sequences, PL/SQL program units… etc.
The application owner is common user in the application root.
CREATE TABLESPACE hr_tbs; CREATE USER HR IDENTIFIED BY oracle DEFAULT TABLESPACE HR_TBS QUOTA UNLIMITED ON HR_TBS CONTAINER = ALL; GRANT CREATE SESSION, CREATE TABLE, CREATE SEQUENCE, CREATE VIEW, CREATE PROCEDURE, CREATE TRIGGER TO HR;
Switch the current schema to the application user.
ALTER SESSION SET CURRENT_SCHEMA=hr;
Run the script file.
@<run the sql for the appication objects creation>.sql
End the application installation, if all the commands in the script successfully run.
ALTER PLUGGABLE DATABASE APPLICATION hr_app END INSTALL '1.0';
Verify that the application has been successfully created.
