If you are even asking ... I would recommend that you purchase and read the Hart/Freeman book before doing anything. It ain't perfect but it's pretty good. Read it at least twice cover to cover before doing anything further.

The Oracle doco is fine but not exactly readable. Hart/Freeman book is moderately readable.

I do have both of the books. I can't really comment much on the recipe's book have not done much looking at it ... "it seems ok" but I get worried about people looking for just cookbooks.

The approach any shop puts in place must fit their requirements. Without taking the time to really understand the technologies available and the pros/cons of each ... is asking for trouble.   Received on Mon Feb 23 2009 - 08:07:46 CST
