Pro Oracle Application Express opens the "hood" of APEX and reveals the full power behind its easy-to-use GUI interface. This book shows you what you need to know to produce powerful, professionally polished applications: such as user-authentication models, approaches to layout and navigation, how to integrate Ajax, how to deal with localization issues like time zones and translations, how to customize the look and feel of an APEX web site, and more. The authors are well-qualified to write on APEX. John Scott is a hard-core APEX developer and his coauthor, Scott Spendolini, is one of the original creators of APEX.
John Edward Scott has been using Oracle since version 7 (around 1993), and has used pretty much every release since then. He has had the good fortune to work on a wide range of projects for a varied group of clients. He was lucky enough to start working with Oracle Application Express when it was first publicly released, and has worked with it nearly every day since (and loves it). John is an Oracle ACE Director and was named Application Express Developer of the Year in 2006 by Oracle Magazine. He is also the cofounder of ApexEvangelists (Apex-Evangelists.com), a company that specializes in providing training, development, and consulting specifically for the Oracle Application Express product.
