Book "Oracle Application Express 4.0 with Ext JS" released

I'm very pleased to announce my book "Oracle Application Express 4.0 with Ext JS" has just been released as a RAW book by Packt Publishing.

RAW simply means the book is still being written, with 8 of 11 chapters completed so far. You're getting access to new chapters as they are being completed, in an unedited format.

A RAW book is an ebook, and this one is priced at 40% of the usual eBook price. Once you purchase the RAW book, you can immediately download the content of the book so far, and when new chapters become available, you will be notified, and  can download the new version of the book. When the book is published, you will receive the full, finished eBook.

For details on the book visit the Packt website.

If you're not familiar with Ext JS, take a look at the Sencha website.

APEX combined with Ext JS allows you to create visually impressive web applications easily. Integrating the Ext interface into a APEX theme and powerful widgets as APEX Plug-ins allows you to give your users a much richer Web 2.0 desktop experience.

Writing the book has been an opportunity to revisit every aspect of integrating the two technologies, with the benefit of over 3 years experience combining the two.

My knowledge has deepened along the way, and I'm happy to be able to share what I've learnt with you.
