I'm new to this forum. I have worked in IT industry for some 4 years with coldfusion and oracle (on IIS server). I'm based in UK.
Since last few years market for coldfusion is not going very well. So I want to chance my field to Oracle (my second fevorite). As I said I have used oracle's basic SQL command and that is about it. (I did oracle course from my x-company where I also learned PL/SQL but need brush up on that).
First thing I want to ask is where should I start. I got friends in job agencies and they said to start with Oracle developer and then move to DBA. I just want to ask you guys if this is the right path I should choose or some thing else. and if so then what books I should start with for oracle developer's course? If there are any course center that teach this and also about preparing for exams...
Any sort of help would be great... thanx in advance.
We're pleased to have you here with us in the Oracle forum, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.
In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.
Amit, I think that is good advice. That way you can transition your development (cold fusion) experience.
And welcome to Javaranch!

Amit, The sheriffs have informed me that you can use a display name that someone else has. The login name you used to register must be unique (but that can stay as anything you want.) So you can change your display name to your real name.
