David Peake has just put my book on the Oracle Technology Network’s APEX page. Looks great in between Scott, Spendolini and Greenwald! Oracle Application Express is really getting it on in the real world. In the last year three books got released that concentrate on a few different parts of developing real applications using APEX. Because I wanted to put some real-live hands-on (eh, I love the cool words in English, should have done this a long time ago) experience into the book I think it has become a very intuitive and easy to follow book which can really make a difference in a Forms to APEX conversion project. During every project, so also inside a conversion project we need to make some difficult choices, in the book I show how we can use the tooling in order to make these without a hassle. One of the most important parts in the conversion tool is the way we can use it to do our conversion project iterative. In the past few years we might have learned that we never want to do a project aiming for implementing all the functionality in once. During the book I point out what we need to do in order to implement the functionality inside the original Oracle Forms application in parts. Delivering functionality to the users so they can test it and we can learn during our conversion project, not just after it.
OTN: My book hits the charts
