Two Things...

The first is an "AWR Formatter" written by a friend of mine, Tyler Muth. It's pretty cool - works as a Chrome plugin - and it makes an AWR report a little more 'friendly' to use. It creates hot links for many of the wait events (so you know what they mean) and it summarizes up a lot of stuff - making the AWR report a lot more "interactive". Check it out and give him feedback on it if you have time.

The second is a book recommendation. If you've been looking for an excuse to learn APEX (application express) and wanted a book to work through it - here is one for you. I know most of the authors personally and can attest for their technical knowledge of APEX. I also really appreciate what they are doing with the royalties. See that link for what they've done. I knew both of the people they reference there.

Glad it's not a scheduling app or more than likely you'd end up being allowed to double-book something!

Seems "Beginning Oracle Application Express 4" by Doug Gault et al. is a very good introductory book for new APEX users. BTW, authors state that Mike Hichwa, Joel Kallman and you are APEX parents.

I have his Pro APEX book and it is real good.

Tom, thanks again for pgs 490-504 of your Effective Design by Oracle book. The pagination bit is always a good reminder read through!

Tom, start that apex book good for learning apex from scratch, as the amazon description stats it is only for proficient users. If not, can anyone recommend a good book for the newer apex versions?
