I've been an Oracle Applications technical consultant for over 10 years and during that time I often used Anil's web site [...] as a resource when I ran into new issues. Now with this book, I have a well-organized volume with all that info and more. In every section, I find new nuggets of information and new techniques that I haven't run across before, each with examples so I can readily make use of them in my work.There are a lot of OA extension and customization requirements that just don't come up often enough to stick in your memory. If you're like me you remember that you did something like that before and you think it was for this client or that, but you certainly don't remember the name of your program and finding it can be a chore. Chances are good that whatever that technique is, it is either in this book or something here will be close enough to trigger the memory banks to bring it to the surface.Because everything is explained with examples, this is a great book for someone starting out as a Oracle EBS techie also. I would strongly recommend that anyone doing customizations and extensions, or forms, reports and interface development buy this book. You won't be sorry.
The books content is valid, and incredibly useful (thank you Anil). However, the Kindle version is a stress to your eyes. It is a combination of actual text (easy to read), and text that is made up of a scanned image (tougher to read). Unfortunately, the scanned image portion feels like a third generation xerox copy. Really distracting - requiring additional effort.Suggestion - sample the book before purchasing it to see if it is something you can live with.
Extremely well written with many relevant examples of both R11 and R12 architecture, administration, configuration and development.The Authors wisely chose to address the most practical aspects of a very wide and sometimes deep product stack.In some areas, there is not a great deal of detail but, the concepts are explained in a manner that Oracle's documentation falls short. Shedding light on basic concepts that are not necessarily intuitive to the reader of Oracle or others documentation. Concept explanations alone are worth the purchase price - but, there is much more.Using this book in concert with Oracle's documentation will get you far. The book itself is likely for intermediate to advanced level - with prior Oracle experience with the DB, Oracle Forms, Reports, EBS functional knowledge and or Java/ADF being very helpful but not absolutely mandatory.I highly recommend this book to any Oracle Professional that needs to come up to speed quickly on R11 or R12.
I wish i had this book five to six years back when i started my journey into E-biz , i had to struggle so much for every small things and figure out how and what to do and now when i read this book , it it spelled out so clearly that it takes few minutes to understand some of the concepts.I like chapters on XML gateway and CLAF ..they are just great as you won't find this detailed information anywhere..Chapter on OAF and related customizations/Extensions is very useful in the realm of coming R12 and FUSION upgrades.Thanks
I have been a fan of Anil Passi's web site for well over a year. So I when I saw that he planned to author Development & Extensibility Handbook, I could not wait. And the wait was worth it! It's been the perfect book for me in my support of eBusiness. As a project lead, I support the business principally, but am more involved with the technology and minor development. I have been supporting Oracle for 2 years. This book cleared up some of my confusion with the Oracle 11i architecture. Of the many great features of this book, I really like the discussion of the directory structure you'll find on the server. Finding information on the server had always been 'hit or miss'. This book cleared up that confusion. The book appears to be more geared towards 11.5.10+, rather than 12, although 12 is discussed. I support 22.214.171.124, so it's perfect! I also told one of our managers in Information Systems that this book should be required reading for new department hires. I have found this book series to be high quality and would recommend them generally. Passi's book rises to that bar.This book is very readable and well written.
This book is great for apps developers. only down side is that the author assumes you already know a lot of knowledge so it might not be suitable for everybody
I bought this book after reading the reviews here. I also follow Anil Passi's blog. This book is no way reflection to the vast how-to's that are present online in his website. This book is just an overview of different stuff. My main interest was in the OAF Development and there was very minimum information on OAF. (I have not gone through most of the other chapters) OAF information is really disappointing. Did not help me at all.
Finally, after the long awaiting, the book that most wanted has been released. I am one of the regular followers of Anil Passi's website for the last 7-8 months. I have gathered valuable information from his postings.His site is a treasure for a variety of users. The book is packed with full of valuable information and is a must have for anyone working with Oracle EBS. Authors have taken a great effort to explain the concept through examples. I wish I could see more and more books from the Authors.
