Arnold, Ken, and James Gosling. The Java Programming Language (Addison-Wesley, 1997). Coauthored by the creator of Java, this valuable introduction explains much of the rationale behind the language.
Brown, Bradley D., Richard J.Niemiec, and Joseph C.Trezzo. Oracle Application Server Web Toolkit Reference (Oracle Press, 1998). This large book contains a lot of helpful information about OAS and Oracle’s other web products.
Dynamic Information Systems, LLC. Oracle Web Application Server Handbook (Oracle Press, 1997). This book is not current with the latest Oracle software, but it contains useful discussions of building web systems with PL/SQL and other tools.
