[Discuss] Shutting down Oracle hosted on Linux

But most importantly, this should happen automatically when you run the shutdown command.

I fully expect, unless somebody broke it in your system, there's a symlink
/etc/rc3.d/K10oracle_service --> /etc/init.d/

The shutdown script finds anything that starts with "K" and runs that with the "stop" argument.  End result should be exactly as you said:
/etc/init.d/ stop

The shutdown script first sorts all the K scripts, executes each one in order.  So things numbered lower than 10 (in the example I wrote above) would be stopped before your oracle service, while things higher number stop later.
