I have read several books on Oracle Forms development and this is by far the clearest and easiest to learn from. Oracle Forms is not the best environment to develop in, but this course and the included workbook take you through step by step and provide feedback in the form of detailed answeres. Further, the problems in this book and solutions actually WORK unlike other books on the subject. It is well worth the... Thank you for this setup, it has cleared up a lot of questions and provided the steps needed for developing working forms!

This is a great book. I was able to apply what I learned very quickly to develop a Forms application. The labs and exercise answers are very detailed and easy to understand. It is the best Forms book by far for those who want hands-on, practical experience. I feel confident that I can tackle more complex assignments because I have a firm grounding based on this book and its excellent companion video CD. My advice is, don't spend $1000 or more for a class - buy this book!

This video course applies to Oracle Forms Developer 6.0 (and makes references to Oracle 8i). If you are using Developer 10g you'll still be able to follow along, but the instructions for a few steps will be incorrect. That said, I was still able to determine what to do--it wasn't a show-stopper. Make sure you go to their companion web site to download the latest excercises rather than the ones on the CD. (See PTR's website for their interactive companion websites.) You will need to have an Oracle database available to you so that the schemas can be installed. You run a PLSQL script to install them. I used Oracle Personal Edition 10g, but the Express edition should work too. SQL, PLSQL, and knowledge of database concepts is a prerequisite for the course. The only paperback book you receive is the one that has the exercises in it. A pdf version of the exercise book can be accessed in the course using the eBook tab. You will need an Internet browser and Apple Quicktime to view the course videos. The CD comes with old versions of Netscape Navigator and Quicktime. I didn't install them, but went out on the web and downloaded the newest version of Quicktime and used my current version of Internet Explorer. Then, I just copied the direcory with the course material to my hard drive and doubleclicked on the Index.html file. There are 13 lectures videos, each with a demonstration video. After viewing the video you use Developer to work the exercises. There are usually several exercises for each lecture.Read more ›

I could not find the form and database files at the web site listed in the book. Try [...]

I have just started on the course, but it appears that it should be quite helpful. The video quality it quite good, I was pleased with that. The book's text is good but the screen shots are very poor. Given the text and the video that probably doesn't matter all that much. I'm more interested in substance than form, and it looks like the substance is there. I have to get up and running pretty quickly and it looks like the course has what I need.

This is a very good solution to learn Oracle Forms (6i) if you can't afford an instructor lead course.Very fiew times you will need additonal help. Is suitable
for beginners to intermediate.Prerequicites are a good knowledge of SQL and PL/SQL. Good books on these subjects are the "SQL by example" and "PL/SQL by example" from the same publisher.
Be aware that Amazon's descriprion refers VHS tape. This is wrong. The Box which I received contains the following items: - a CD with video of the course -NO VHS TAPE and the book "Oracle Forms Interactive Workbook -ISBN:0130158089". This is much better than the video tape.Overall a very good purchase.
