As most folks already know, the next release of Application Express is 3.2. The primary (and almost sole) new feature in Application Express 3.2 will be Oracle Forms Conversion. This was discussed and demonstrated at Oracle Open World 2008 in San Francisco in September.
When I was at Oracle Open World 2008, I had the good fortune of meeting James Lumsden from Packt Publishing. As it turns out, Packt Publishing is starting a book on Oracle Application Express for Oracle Forms Developers. "It will be a title that shows Forms developers how to ‘get things done’ in Apex, in a practical hands-on way, but with regular cross-reference to their established development techniques, practices and approaches."
Why am I writing about this? Because Packt Publishing is interested in talking to you if you have a desire to contribute to this type of book. If you're interested in further exploring this opportunity, please contact James Lumsden at email@example.com.
* Note: I have no relationship with Packt Publishing. I have contributed to books from Wrox Press and Apress but never Packt, so I cannot give any positive or negative feedback.
