This book is rare find. It is by far the best book for someone new to forms. It walks you through (step by step) the creation of an Oracle Form. The presentation is solid and easy to follow. Other books on this subject are scattered and confusing. All the major topics are covered and then some more (Wizards, LOV, Alterts, Triggers, Built-ins, Canvases, Windows, Subclassing, Property Classes, Visual Attributes, Program Units, Multiple Form Applications, Parameter lists and Menus). It should be noted that this is not a manual, you learn by working through the lab excercises. The book covers far more than the two Oracle Education class Forms I and Forms II, so forget about taking them if you complete this book. The companion web site includes forms to download that are the solutions to the excercises at the end of the chapters. This book will keep you plenty busy but if you want more the web site also includes some multiple choice practice questions.
