Full Description

Discover Ext JS, one of today’s most powerful and highly regarded JavaScript frameworks, with perhaps the best set of GUI widgets around, and a whole host of components that make developing client–side applications a breeze. Using a pragmatic approach, you’ll dissect seven full–fledged applications, covering

  • How Ext JS allows you to create these applications with a slick user interface with a minimum of effort
  • How the other parts of Ext JS aside from the GUI widgets provide many of the capabilities modern applications need, such as Ajax and data mechanisms
  • How other technologies such as Gears can be brought in to make the applications more powerful

What you’ll learn

  • Get an understanding of one of today’s hottest JavaScript frameworks and libraries, Ext JS.
  • Develop interesting Web 2.0 “front ends,” RIAs (rich Internet applications), and more.
  • Create a number of applications from the projects or pragmatic case studies that the author gives you.
  • Create an organizer, timekeeper, a code cabinet, and more.
  • Get back to basics and back ends using a SQL workbench, Google Gears, and Ext BASIC.
  • Pull it all together by designing a game using Ext JS.
