Today we’re excited to announce the availability of our newest bundle, Sencha Complete: Team. Over the last couple of years, we’ve been working hand in hand with our customers as they use Sencha products to make more complex and mission critical applications on both desktop and mobile. We have seen larger and larger groups of developers working on larger and larger applications across various geographies.
We designed the new features and functionality of Sencha Complete: Team with these trends in mind. We wanted to make it easier and faster for enterprise development teams to build apps using Sencha products.
Sencha Complete: Team expands on Sencha Complete by adding several awesome new features. Let’s run through what’s new:
What’s New in Sencha Complete: Team
Sencha Eclipse Plugin
Sencha Desktop Packager
Sencha Desktop Packager, (formerly known under the codename of “Chrion”), gives you a full runtime environment to execute your web apps outside the constraints of the browser. Built on Chromium with a plethora of additional APIs (like file system, menu, system info, and more), the Desktop Packager lets you package up a web app into a native Windows or Mac executable. If you’re at an enterprise that only uses IE6 or IE7, but you want to take full advantage of Chromium’s performance or the latest HTML5 features, use the Desktop Packager to wrap and deploy your application as a native Windows and Mac app.
In Sencha Complete: Team, we’re introducing a new set of Data Connectors to Ext JS’ data package that streamline access to AMF and SOAP data sources. If you’re building on top of a Blaze DS or LiveCycle Data Services, you’re familiar with Adobe’s Action Message Format (AMF). With the new AMF Data Connector in Team, you can directly connect to these AMF powered backends and speak the AMF binary protocol to them without the need for additional middleware. And if your infrastructure is built on SOA and SOAP, then the new SOAP Data Connector lets you call the appropriate methods from a SOAP endpoint. Since both the AMF and SOAP Data Connectors are part of Ext JS’ data package, all the results flow in to components that use the data package, like Charts or the GridView.
Updated Software License
In Sencha Complete: Team, we’ve also updated the software license to include standardized limited indemnity. This has been a very common request from enterprise teams, and we’re pleased to be able to include it as part of a standard license.
Updates to Sencha Complete
We’re also upgrading Sencha Complete to include the Sencha Eclipse Plugin and as expected Sencha Complete and Sencha Complete: Team, will offer Ext JS, Sencha Touch (including Sencha Charts), Sencha Architect, and Premium Support for all the included products.
