The JDeveloper 11g Handbook is Here!

The JDeveloper 11g Handbook: A Guide to Oracle Fusion Web Development is being released today! If you’re at Oracle OpenWorld, you can pick it up at the conference bookstore starting Monday. If not, you can buy it from Amazon.

You can access errata, database scripts you need for the hands-on practices, and hands-on practice solutions from the TUHRA2 home page on samplecode.oracle.com. Pretty soon you’ll be able to download code snippets from there, too.
