JSBuilder 2/3 - Any tutorials/setup anywhere?
I am going in circles trying to find a proper tutorial/installation guide for JSBuilder 2 or 3. I can only find old tutorials as part of EXJS deployment, but those are marked 2007. I have searched here as well as general web and seem to find nothing. JSBuilder 3 is referenced in the Sencha slideshare decks on optimization.
Also, the JSBuilder page on Sencha.com keeps going in circles to the readme file, which doesn't help much.
Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Sadly, I've not gotten any further on this, or any responses. I ended up using the copy command on windows command line (cat on Mac os x terminal) to merge files and the YUI compressor to minify with great results. Further reduced file size with the dean Edwards online packer.

i'm going to do some evaling of other projects as i'm mac based so the jsbuilder is useless at the moment....
is everyone using jsbuilder or do we have some other recommendations?

odd... ignore my last post...
i don't know why but i was getting the old windows only jsbuilder (gui presumibly) when googling... only got the new jar from http://www.sencha.com/products/jsbuilder just now as it was linked in another thread i think...
doesn't seem to be advertised too well on the site ?!?
i'm going to look at a few build / optimisation tools and see what i find...
jsbuilder, yui, closure, sprockets, jake / rake, and look at the embed.js and the dojo approach as they are pretty good with this kinda stuff...
i'll take a look at packer as well...
will try to post some findings back...

seems sencha touch ships with jsbuilder3 and the downloads for jsbuilder on the sencha site are all for v2.
which version would sencha like us to use?
are they built for the different versions of Ext?

You guys found any solution for it?
It would be great if sencha can provide a mini tutorial on that.
I'm using a Mac and have no idea how to build it.

The JSBuilder that comes bundled with the sencha touch download works fine for me.
- Copy the jsbuilder folder to the lib/touch folder in your project (actually, you could put it anywhere you like...).
- The readme and Code:
- Copy lib/touch/sencha-touch.jsb3 (e.g. to your project root)
- Adapt the contents to your needs (just follow the sencha touch way of doing things, define your packages and include them in the build)
- Create a folder to contain your build files (e.g app/build)
- Finally, run Code:
lib/touch/jsbuilder/JSBuilder.sh -p myApp.jsb3 -d app/build

fx-mike , you are right. it does work as is.
I was trying to use the one downloaded from the website which is jsbuilder2.
Anyways, thanks a lot for you help.
