Beginning Oracle® Application Express

Even if you have limited programming experience, this hands-on guide will get you up and running quickly with Oracle Application Express (APEX). It covers the concepts and practical steps involved in building a web application from the ground up using Oracle APEX.

He then explains how to enhance the system with reports, charts, themes, and templates. You'll also find out how to use packaged applications and work with multiple applications and you'll learn how to migrate and integrate data with the Oracle environment.

By the end of this book, you'll have a strong understanding of Oracle APEX and the world of Oracle technology, which will enable you to build your own applications and create further refinements that meet your reporting needs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good enough, but not perfect for beginner. Jan. 11 2009
By C. Shen - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For someone like me who is managing a team of developers for software tools, I went through the book within a week. It took me a bit longer because I had been submitting about 5-6 erratas to the publisher. While I can understand why there may be a push to get the book out for the holidays, I had really hoped the example code provided on validation had worked as described in the book. However, if you are familiar with Oracle Application Express some what but don't have the time sit through training course, using this book will fast track you enough to be a hands-on APEX practitioner. If you are doing development today in APEX, I would recommend another book "Pro Oracle Application Express," by Scott Spendolini since that is what couple of my developers keep on their desks.
Good luck.

I have taught the Oracle Application Express course for Oracle for as long as the software has been available. I developed and teach a course for Portland Community College and I am using this book as the primary resource book for my students. I strongly recommend this book for those interested in getting a great start with Application Express.

Got this for a class. The version of Apex that Oracle hosts is a newer version than used in this book.
The steps involved for each task do not match the APEX ide.

Frankly, I've never heard of Apex before this class, and I fail to see the need for it. There are many more robust ways to create database apps for Oracle.

I'll check to see if the book has any updated text on the publisher's website.

I gave it a 3 star rating because it does seem like a decent book if the screen shots etc matched up with the actual IDE.

Good enough for the beginner to APEX. However, there are very few beginner books on APEX out there. I was disappointed with the editing of this book. Some of the steps didn't follow what actually had to be done and it cause me to get some errors. Also, the code that came with it was incomplete, so I had to type it from scratch.

I went through this book and found it easy to follow and well thought out. There were plenty of screen shots to help. This book will not make you an expert, but it is certainly a great place to start if you want to move to Apex.
