Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Oracle Database 10g XML & SQL: Design, Build, & Manage XML Applications in Java, C, C++, & PL/SQL (Osborne ORACLE Press Series) (Paperback)
Got the book a few days ago. I've been going through the examples. You can download all the source code from the Oracle Press web site, which is nice. But the examples in the book aren't given names or numbers, and the web site (although it does at least separate them by chapter) uses a cryptic and unexplained naming convention, so finding the code you want is confusing.
And it gets worse. The very first example in the book (and the downloaded code) won't compile; it calls a method that doesn't exist. I was able to work-around it. The second example wouldn't compile either; it has a typo. The fixes are easy enough so far, but it's frustrating. I guess they didn't have enough time to actually edit the book. Hopefully the online code will eventually be fixed. Disappointing so far. :(
