Hi,

I am in process of migrating from GWT-Ext to GXT and I have a bit of a hard time understanding the data related classes.

Comming from GWT-Ext and ExtJs I think in terms of Stores, Records (Stores have records) and Tree Nodes. GXT introduced the concept of Model, ModelData but then again it has a Store class and it has a Record class. I feel confused. I would have thought that Record is a Model in the end.

Can someone explain me briefly how these classes come together or point me to some documentation (other than api docs which are very dry) that describes a bit how the Model objects work?

Thanks!

and it is a little tricky because there is a new thing: the Loaders

if you go to the examples explorer http://www.extjs.com/examples/explorer.html you fill find many examples how to use the the store constructs.
