    Default Are "Sencha Desktop Packaging" and "Business Data Connectivity" only in Team version?

    Are "Sencha Desktop Packaging" and "Business Data Connectivity" only in Team version?


    As a one person company, I was wondering on how I could get a complete suite with "Sencha Desktop Packaging" and "Business Data Connectivity"?

    My clients are small businesses or charities who cannot support the cost of a 10 seats product when there is only one developer, while they would like to benefit for Desktop Packaging for the few computers (generally < 5) they have.

    Are there any plan to change this or could you explain the reasons of such a decision ?

    I have exactly the same question.
    Single Developer, and I'm interested mainly in getting more Information about Desktop packaging (will it be possible to use native Print System/silent Printing) and if there will be an option for Licensing it for smaller companies.

    I think a lot of small businesses would like to see Desktop Packaging coming to Sencha Complete. At least I do!

    Default Some alternatives

    Some alternatives


    Hey, If you need the desktop packager maybe you can use the open source alternatives:
    appjs - www.appjs.org
    tidesdk - www.tidesdk.org (formerly titanium desktop)

    But it would be great to have the desktop packager available at a lower price

    Guyz if Sencha does not bother respond there are plenty of viable alternative. Just like nazcasistemas said.
    To that list i will add Adobe AIR.

    A connector for Adobe Air / ExtJS 4 would also be my favourite.
    But it doesn't look like there is any working with 4.x

    Default Too much

    Too much


    I'm also a developer who would like to see the desktop packaging be available for less than $21,950 (10x $2,195). I would assume that the packaging application is tightly built with Extjs. So there may be not too much fuss in creation.

    Until I can purchase it with the Sencha Complete, I will continue to use another packager that I've been using for the past year. It also creates Chromium-based exes and can include PHP coding.
    For those interested in an alternative packager, it is at: http://exeoutput.com

    An alternative is to band together as a "Team" and purchase it together. But at $2,195, with the only difference being the inclusion of the Desktop Packaging app and "Business Data Connectivity", I'd rather keep with the $995 single-user package ($1,100 difference between the packages if you can get qualified as a "Team").
