Product Description

From the Back Cover

Oracle Developer Forms Techniques describes the concepts and techniques needed to build Web-enabled applications with Forms. The book covers advanced topics in great detail, including understanding and overcoming error handling limitations in Forms, such as errors which cannot be tracked through normal FORM_SUCCESS or FORM_FAILURE, ordering by items based on FK look-ups, obtaining Query Count without actually executing a query, and performing an exclusive server-side commit from Forms. The book also covers object-oriented methods in Forms, and Intelligence in Forms. Code segments are provided to help developers implement these techniques, thus easing application development time and effort.

This has got to be one of the most useful advanced Oracle Forms books out there (Let's face it - there are enough useless ones). Written for Forms 6i, it takes you through many techniques inadequately covered by the bog-standard Oracle Press books, such as how to base forms on stored procedures and FROM-clause queries, how to dynamically populate list items and create hierarchical tree structures, and other extremely useful and not immediately obvious development methods.
I would highly recommend this book to both professional Oracle Forms developers and beginners. I genuinely believe that you will find it hard to buy a better book on this subject.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've only recently come (or, more accurately, thrown in) to Oracle forms - and i'll be leaving them asap. However, this book has been a lifesaver in trying to understand what the chuffing hell is going on in terms of the eventing model and how to go about engineering line of business applications.

Oracle forms seems to be almost a dead product - but it lives on (or, more accurately, refuses to die) in a lot of legacy code - and this book is the sort of resource that can save your life if you've got to hack around with it.

Recommended.

I know this review is very long in coming but I have been developing using Oracle forms for a long time and there is no book to beat this one. This book is more than due for an update however this a very handy tool for beginner/intermediate Oracle Forms Developers.

A must have for above average developers 17 July 2001
By Ashish Kumar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are looking for an advanced, to the point, and concise book, look no further! I am surprised that there has been only one review so far for this book. Oracle Forms is a failrly complex piece of tool. This book teaches you the 'right way' of using the software. It provides a ton of advanced tips like applying object oriented methods in forms, advanced GUI programming etc. A comprehensive index allows you to find areas of interest very quickly.
Obviously, 226 pages of text could not cover a vast subject like Oracle Forms, however, this book gives enough pointers to lead you in the right direction. If you are a little experienced with Oracle Forms, buy this book to leap to the next level.

Excellent Book 2 Mar. 2000
By D. Trivedi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent work describing the essential techniques for forms development. It has got valuable tricks of the trade involved in forms development and covers all new features of version 6 with live examples. I feel this book is a handy and expert reference to forms programmers and developers alike.

Panning for Gold 27 Nov. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is badly written, and the organization could be considered bizarre or non-existant, depending on your point of view.
That being said, if you really want to dig deeper into Oracle Forms, this book might help. The author shares a number of useful tricks, and the code is available at the publisher's site, so that is a help. In keeping with the bizarre tone, the code is in Word format, so if you don't have Word (I don't at work) you may need someone to reformat it for you. I had to rewrite all the examples anyway, for a decent layout. But, like I say, there are some good tricks to learn here, so if you have patience and are willing to dig, this book might be for you.
The question is, tho: why are so many computer books written so badly? I guess it's because editors can't write software. Maybe I'll have to write one myself.
