Hi there!

Might anyone know if the JDeveloper (10g) book covers the same topics as the JDeveloper (9i) book, seems logical that it should!

I tried to compare the indexes on amazon, but the 10g index isn't showing!

I think it's interesting that the 'USED' 10g book is cheaper by $10.00 than the 'USED' 9i book, they do have different authors, is that a possible reason for the differnce maybe?

Anyway, thanks for any insights you might have on this, if your like me, you have shelves and shelves of obsolete Java books lying around and have become pretty picky about adding any more to the collection!

Thanks very much!

This is probably too late but: I ordered my JDeveloper 10G Handbook from Amazon weeks ago... and it hasn't shipped yet.

I have the 9i Handbook.

JDev 9i has the BC4J framework, but 10G has introduced the ADF framework which includes the BC4J framework. It also adds "UIX" which is Oracle's version of JSF.

I would contend that if you are planning to use 10G for production apps -- AND you plan to use Oracle's proprietary frameworks -- that you should probably get the 10G handbook. My current client invited me to a JDeveloper 10G presentation recently, and there is a fair bit of difference between 9i and 10G if you've gone BC4J.

If you plan to stay away from BC4J/ADF, then you probably don't need the new book -- unless you want an intro to the IDEs new features... like the Struts or Database GUI designer.
