Scott, this is really about the book you and John Scott have written (Oracle Application Express Pro). Any chance you or John could comment on why this is taking so long and whether the book will still be relevant if it is ever published?

Jack,

The book has taken longer than we anticipated it for a number of reasons. Suffice it to say, it should be out sooner rather than later, and we all look forward to its release.

As for its relevance, I feel that it will be extremely relevant. The book takes a larger view of APEX than just APEX itself, and most of the technologies that surround APEX are largely constant and unchanged. APEX itself has not undergone any major changes from 3.0 to 3.1. Sure, there's a few new features, but by and large, the Application Builder is almost identical to what it was in 3.0.

Thanks,

- Scott -
