New Tutorials for Ext JS 4 and Sencha Touch 2
With the preview of Sencha Touch 2 available, it is a great time to explore the APIs and prepare to upgrade your existing applications. In this article from our newsletter, Upgrading to Sencha Touch 2 PR2, we take a simple existing example app—the Touch 1 CityBars guide—and explore what is required to make it compatible with the Touch 2 PR2 release.
Following up from his highest-rated SenchaCon talk, Jacky Nguyen prepared a great tutorial on the Sencha Class System within Ext JS 4 and Sencha Touch 2. Both frameworks use the classes to manage dependencies, improve reuse, and provide rich features commonly found in class-based languages. Developers writing code using Ext JS 4 and Touch 2 can inherit from internal classes in the frameworks and make their own code object-oriented.
Community member Jay Garcia has posted his own take on the Sencha Touch 2 Class System, which you can find as an 11 minute screencast in this contributed piece to Sencha Learn.
Tommy Maintz continues his Ext JS 4 MVC series of articles. In the previous two articles, he explored architecting a Pandora-style application using the new features of Ext JS 4. In the third installment, he implements controller logic inside of the application’s MVC architecture. Catch up with Part 1 and Part 2 if you haven’t already. Or go straight to Part 3 of Architecting Your App in Ext JS 4.
New Tutorials for Ext GWT 3 Beta
Ext GWT 3 Beta is now available! To allow a smooth transition from Ext GWT 2 to 3, Ext GWT lets you include both v2 and v3 components in the same application. Ext GWT Team Lead Darrell Meyer explains how to run Ext GWT 2 and 3 together in the same app.
Our newest Ext GWT team member Justin Hickman wrote an interesting article on Ext GWT 3 Declarative Markup with UiBinder. UiBinder support has been one of the major driving factors for many of the API changes in Ext GWT 3.0.
