Book : Oracle Mobile Application Framework Developer Guide

It has been a while since my previous post, and I have a very good reason for that. I have been busy, very busy. But now, after a long time of writing and rewriting I can finally announce that my book, Oracle Mobile Application Framework Developer Guide, is available for you to buy. Many thanks to my reviewers Chris Muir, Frank Nimphius and Joe Huang who guided and helped me all the way.















If you are starting with Oracle MAF development, this book will give you a jump start. You will learn the concepts of MAF and MAF development and learn tips and tricks for MAF development.
In Oracle Mobile Application Framework Developer Guide, I explain how to use this powerful framework to create multiplatform mobile apps based on a single code base. Detailed examples and ready-to-use code are provided throughout the book. A complete, step-by-step sample application highlights the robust functionality of Oracle Mobile Application Framework, including data visualization, UX patterns, geographical maps, push notifications, and more.
A glimpse of the content:
  • Configure your IDE for Android and Apple iOS application development
  • Build AMX pages and task flows for mobile applications
  • Work with the binding layer and data controls
  • Create application features and configure access to them in the springboard and navigation bar
  • Call web services using a data control and create an on-device database
  • Implement device interaction.
  • Debug, test, and secure Oracle Mobile Application Framework applications
And finally you will learn how to build an interactive sample app.

I am really enjoying the book. It is in two sections with the first being theory and the second a practical example.

It was strange that some of the screenshots were of a phone in Dutch!

Is there anywhere where I could get hold of the images used in the sample application and appropriate rest services?

Also, I have some errata (I think), where can I send it to?

Please provide the source code. Otherwise, your book is quite useless without the source code.
