Although this title doesn't include the "Tips & Techniques" label like some of the other Oracle Press installments do, it falls into that category. Oracle8i Web Development
is a collection of diverse overviews, specific techniques, and recommendations for the wide range of interrelated Oracle tools for creating professional Web applications.
One of the most useful sections of this book is its coverage of the WebServer Generator and Oracle Designer packages. Here the reader will learn about the generated procedures and the WebServer Generator's key preferences. Other key chapters on Perl and Java are also useful, albeit rather brief.
An appendix of useful reference Web sites does a good job of rounding out this utilitarian guide. While this title is primarily a compendium of key information and not a comprehensive manual for Web site development, it ties together content about various products that isn't usually found in a single source. --Stephen W. Plain
"...discusses a wide range of available database and business applications and presents a host of real-world, helpful tips and techniques..." -- Paper Clips print publication, Bridgewater, New Jersey. January 2000
