In Detail

Sencha Ext JS is an industry leader for business-standard web application development. Ext JS is a leading JavaScript framework that comes with a myriad of components, APIs, and extensive documentation that you can harness to build powerful and interactive applications. Using Ext JS, you can quickly develop rich desktop web applications that are compatible with all major browsers.

This book will enable you to build databases using information from an existing database with Ext JS. It covers the MVC application architecture that enables development teams to work independently on one project. Additionally, the book teaches advanced charting capability, enabling developers to create state-of-the-art charts just once. These charts are compatible with major browsers without the need to rely on plugins.

This hands-on, practical guide will take you through the mechanics of building an application. In this instance, we will use this application to manage existing data structures in the form of a database.

You will begin by making SQL and tables in MySQL and will then move on to developing the project environment and introducing Sencha Cmd. You will learn to create a form to input data and monitor the state of the input, while seeing how Ext Direct will validate the form on the server side.

Finally, you will have a working application that is ready for you to customize to suit your needs. You can also use it as a template for any future projects when you need a similar database.

Approach

An in-depth tutorial that teaches you the basics of data-driven applications, and how to design and implement them using Ext JS.

Who this book is for

If you are an intermediate in Sencha Ext JS, "Ext JS Data-Driven Application Design" is the tutorial for you. You need to be familiar with JavaScript and have basic operational knowledge of MySQL. If you want to be able to systematically construct an application from the first step to implementation, this book will be useful for you.

    Comments about oreilly Ext JS Data-driven Application Design:

    If your organization is planning on developing its online application, it has to make the right choices for the Web libraries it is going to use.
    Sencha Ext JS JavaScript framework is the most suitable package for the Enterprise level app.
    Sencha Ext JS brings cross-browser high-performance UI widgets and rich data management libraries to the app development, enables developers to use a model-view-controller (MVC) architecture, and delivers the most advanced charting and graphing capabilities of any JavaScript framework.
    For best using this library, I recommend you to read the last book from 'Packt Publishing': 'Ext JS Data-driven Application Design' (see: bit.ly/JD8klx).
    The book is a very useful hands-on practical guide for both intermediate and expert JavaScript developers. It will show you how to develop a real-life application that can read from and write to a database, using the framework's most advanced features.
    The book will lead you through the database structure of the application and its design structure using the MCV (model-view-controller) pattern—decoupling the UI, data, and business-logic.
    It discusses forms to input data and validate it, list and tables to view and search the data, optimization of Ajax requests to the server, implementation of data displaying with different types of graphs on the dashboard and the implementation of data import/export.
    The book describes in detail each subject with extensive examples that you can use and adapt for your own purposes.
    By using all the features introduced in this book, you can use this great architecture to build your own applications and to address correctly the problems you encounter when developing your applications and web sites.

    Comments about oreilly Ext JS Data-driven Application Design:

    In this rather short book (definitely worth the price) you will walk through the steps needed to create a data driven solution using ExtJS.
    To learn this, the author teaches you to build a sales management database and system.
    You will learn how to choose entities accordingly (though I believe most of the people coming to this sort of book will already be able to make this happen).

    You will learn how to build ExtJS controllers to respond to users' requests, needed views and understand the workflow, a "soft" back button to work with the framework and more.

    One of the major gems you will find in this book is one of the things many people who are new to working with extjs combined with a server is the user of Ext.Direct with php.
    (Though I'm not a big fan of php! I'd would rather it be written for nodejs..but that's just me)

    In conclusion this book is definitely a tool for those who want to escalate their knowledge of extjs to the next level and develop products for this growing market.
