New Packt Books: APEX & JRockit

 

I have received these 2 ebooks from Packt Publishing and I am currently reviewing them. Both of them look great so far.

 

Oracle Application Express 3.2 - The Essentials and More

First of all, I have to mention that I am new to APEX. I was interested on this product which is a development tool for Web applications on the Oracle Database. As I support JDeveloper and ADF, which are products that work very closely with the Oracle Database and are a rapid development tool as well, it is always interesting and useful to know complementary tools. APEX looks very useful and the book includes many working examples.

A more complete review of this book is coming soon.

Further information about this book can be seen at Packt.

 

Oracle JRockit: The Definitive Guide

Many of our Oracle Coherence customers run their caches and clusters using JRockit. This JVM has helped us to solve lots of Service Requests. It is a really reliable, fast and stable JVM. It works great on both development and production environments with big amounts of data, concurrency, multi-threading and many other factors that can make a JVM crash.

This book has been a very good complement for the JRockit training that I am attending, which is being dictated by Mattis Castegren.

I must also mention JRockit Mission Control (JRMC), which is a great tool for management and monitoring. I really recommend it. As a matter of fact, some months ago, I created a document entitled "How to Monitor Coherence-Based Applications using JRockit Mission Control" (Doc Id 961617.1) on My Oracle Support. Also, the JRockit Runtime Analyzer (JRA) and it successor of newer versions, the JRockit Flight Recorder (JFR) are deeply reviewed. This book contains very clear and complete information about all this and more.

I will post an entry with a more complete review soon (and will probably post an entry about Coherence monitoring with JRMC soon too).

Further information about this book can be seen at Packt.
