For Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (220.127.116.11), Oracle Database 2 Day Developer's Guide has these changes:
If you use SQL Developer, Oracle recommends using version 4.0 or later (see "Connecting to Oracle Database from SQL Developer").
Chapter 2, "Connecting to Oracle Database and Exploring It," covers the topics previously covered in Chapter 1 through Chapter 3, has the new topic "Exploring Oracle Database with SQL*Plus", and has some new and changed examples.
The schema objects that you create in the tutorials in Chapter 3, "About DML Statements and Transactions," Chapter 4, "Creating and Managing Schema Objects," and Chapter 5, "Developing Stored Subprograms and Packages," (formerly Chapter 5, Chapter 6, and Chapter 7) are no longer used in a sample application.
New Chapter 8, "Building Effective Applications," explains how to build scalable applications and use recommended programming and security practices.
New Chapter 9, "Developing a Simple Oracle Database Application," shows how to develop a simple Oracle Database application.
Chapter 10, "Deploying an Oracle Database Application," has the new topic "Creating Installation Scripts with the Cart" and explains how to deploy the application that you develop in Chapter 9.
