Hi All,

I have been reading on the web how GXT 2.0 upgrade is a nightmare. We need to upgrade to GXT 2.0/GWT 1.6 soon. I am wondering if any of you has any advise or can shed some light on how long does it take to upgrade a medium scale application to GXT2.0 from GXT1.2?

Are there any upgrade documents that can be used for the upgrade?

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks,
MA.

It is not really a nightmore. There are a couple of changes but all of them are fast fixable. (Events are not a class and no longer a interger will be thebiggest thing).

I moved a quite big application in less than two hours.

The way GXT2 works is in almost most parts the same as in gxt1.

Is there any upgrade document to guide us?

...and here it is:

http://extjs.com/deploy/gxt-2.0.1/2.0_migration_guide.html

It's more like a guideline on the api changes (since version 2.x is not backward compatible with 1.x), anyway the change is worthy.

hope it helps.

cheers!
