Today i m exited to share with a tool that we ve been using internally for quite a long time now and that has helped us take our Ext JS developement to another level.
Working on a heavy J2EE based environment we were always looking for a way to improve our developement experience.
Tooling around Ext(and JS in general) has become verry powerful over the time(Designer, Eclipse plugin,IntelliJ, Cmd, etc ...).Libraries like ExtDirect, DJN have make (Java) backends integration enjoyable. Even though we were always able to get things done, we were not really satisfied with this approaches.
What we wanted is the ability to leverage the same language all over the application stack (from front to backend).On top of that we wanted even powerful tooling. We wanted our code to scale as the code size becomes bigger and bigger.
Not only do you get a high optimised JS output(The GWT compiler is one the best at generating performant JS), you also get all the tooling around Java Enterprises Softwares for free.
Why use Ext4j ?
Convincing customers of this approach could be difficult but once they see what Ext4j brings to the table their opinion will change real fast.
What does Ext4j has to offer ?
1) First the library will be FREE to use with an Apache 2 license(Ext JS licensing still applies though).
As you can see this is less verbose and pretty handy speciall for non prorammers(Designers).
6) Seamless Java(and others) backend integration.
Because Ext4j leverages the Google Web Toolkit you get the ability to invoke Java backend methods right from the client in Java.
7) Even more...
Version 1 is just the beginning. We are planing(with the help of the comminity of course) to make this the best tool possible for creating Ext JS application.
We are confident that after using Ext4j your Ext JS development experience will never be the same.
Real world example
While getting ready for the GA release. We are also implementing a set of applications to demonstrate what s possible with Ext4j. Below is the picture of the Ext4j Explorer. explorer.jpg
The explorer allready contains more then 50 demos(and counting). You can see it in action here:
As a Java Devs myself i understand where you are coming from.
There is not ETA yet. I will definitely share more in the coming days.
GA release is not faar away.
Yes the Explorer is written with Ext4j
Like i said in my previous post we will be adding more demos before GA.
"Why should one using your tool instead of Sencha GXT ?"
Well we created Ext4j because our customers wanted an Ext JS solution.
Most of them allready have a Ext JS license and were not willing to buy a GXT license.
The library primary aims to help people in the same situation.
Beyond that we simply aim to be a great alternative for Web development period.
Combining Ext JS and Java in the way we do has a big potential and hopefully you guyz will also see it that way
Any news on this really interesting project ?
By the way really nice demo.
Will it be opensource ?
I saw that you have a PDF generator for Charts !. Awesome !
Will that also be part of the library ?
Really looking forward to working with Ext4j
