Sorry for this late summary. I have tried and test the solution
successfully. Here is my primary question.

Thanks to Allan McAleavy for his ideas about modifying the stop method. As
he warns, this would invalidate the support agreement with sun b/c stop
method scripts is part of the package.
But maybe there is a lack of flexibility in sun scripts. I did the following

check the scripts called to stop the DataServer and find it actualy is

in this script you can find the line
su $ORACLE_OWNER -c "$SERVER_MANAGE shutdown immediate" >> $DBUG_FILE

$SERVER_MANAGE is defined some lines earlier as

which was the script I finaly modified. In that script in the shutdown
stanza you can find some line like:
srvmgrl <<
connect internal

And I inserted my additional sql statemente (basically dumps to disk before
stopping) befor the line "$@" which stands for the external argument
(shutdown immediate).

The sql statements must finish with a ;

For debugging look at the $DEBUG_FILE


Another solution suggested by Mazhar Khan is to use "start before" and "stop
before" methods, but I didnot managed to find them so I think that methods
should be defined some where in the RTR file for the resource type. Although
that whould be a more elegant solution is also more complex.

Thanks to both of them for sharing their ideas.
