View Full Version : Code for loading dependencies on deployment

1 Mar 2014, 1:41 PM
Sencha Docs (http://docs.sencha.com/extjs/4.2.1/#!/api/Ext.Loader) says that for deployment code, dynamic loading should not be used. Does it mean that I should explicitly set Ext.require() for the narrowest dependency chain possible and absolutely avoid Ext.Loader.setConfig({ enabled: true }); found almost everywhere?

Or would I better use Sencha Cmd to compile the needed libraries to a single file and load it once in the html and just stick to the Ext.create() syntax advocated on the docs (under the "Synchronous Loading on Demand" section)?

I suspect I am mixing up a few concepts here. Can anyone provide some light on this? Thanks

If you don't want runtime loading of required classes, then you'll have to either use Cmd to compile your app into a single .js file, or use some other mechanism to do this (possibly an ANT/Maven/Gradle task where you define the proper order for the files and concatenate them into a single file).
