There are plenty of beginner books on the market, and some are actually helpful. There was one question that was never answered though -- "OK, I can build a block. Now what? " Peter and Paul have answered this question perfectly. So well in fact that the 1 copy I bought for the office is not enough. This book has become mandatory for my employees to have in their library.Top this off with the interview questions they provide for managers and this book is the most well rounded book to date. If you, or any of your people, are using Developer for your projects, this book is a must.
I purchased this book unseen it appears to be very good for Forms, but it contains very little information on Reports, none of which I would consider "Advanced" . I do not develope Forms, so this was another waste of money on Oracle Press books.
This is a solid reference book for those doing primarily Forms development, but it lacks quite a little in the Reports department. If you're buying it for Reports development, as I did, you'll be disappointed. I have yet to find a very good Reports reference. That said, this is probably the best one out there. The book contains something like 70% - 30% Forms info to Reports info (and that may be a little generous). It does have a few good examples and is an easy read.
If you are looking to learn Advanced Reports don't look here. The book is mostly on Forms, and the information on Reports is not advanced. Another waste of money for me :(
READ THIS BOOK. You may understand what subclassing means and how object libraries work, but you'll have a hard time being productive if you don't understand how they best work together.Wish I had this book before beginning my latest project. It has changed the way I look at Forms and Reports development.
Every so often a single book will define the way a tool will be used by everybody for a long time. 'Developer Advanced Forms and Reports' is that kind of book.As a longtime Oracle DBA and a long-ago SQL*Forms developer, I was called upon to create an infrastructure for Oracle-based applications development. I knew all the Forms concepts, but desperately needed as quick a jumpstart as I could get to make it all work together. This book provided that jump with detailed instructions and examples.I really think this book will become _the_ standard methodology for Oracle Developer developers everywhere.Congratulations - and many thanks - to Dr. Dorsey and Mr. Koletzke for a job very well done.
I've found the book useful, though about 50% of it was not new for me. I realise that for another person not so deep in the topic, the book would be a real treasure.
The number of books for Oracle Developers is sadly very limited. Probably for this reason, Oracle allowed this nearly useless book to be published. As an OCP Developer, I was interested in an "advanced" book dealing with Forms. The Certification guide is far better. This book never really gets started, instead it meanders from subject to subject, providing nothing in the way of depth. Save your money on this one.
