APEX 4.0 Cookbook
At the risk of alienating other authors (which is not my intent at all), I did want to raise awareness of a recently published book Oracle APEX 4.0 Cookbook written by Marcel van der Plas and Michel van Zoest. Very often, new developers to Oracle Application Express get up to speed quickly with the basics of APEX, but sometimes are left floundering when trying to do a specific task. The Oracle documentation on APEX tends to explain "what something is", and the Oracle By Examples are excellent soup-to-nuts tutorials, but often times, someone just wants to know "how do I do X?". That's where I think this book does an excellent job at filling this void, with very lucid and finite topics (e.g., Sending mail via APEX, Uploading and downloading files, Protecting a page using an authorization scheme).
