Unanswered: Sencha without Models/Stores
I'm new to Sencha (and web development in general).
I'm researching writing port of our current iOS/Android application using the Sencha Touch framework, but I'm concerned about how Sencha handles data (through the use of Models and Stores).
My worry is that I will make Sencha harder to use in the long run by doing this.
Any thoughts on how will this impact my ability to:
1) Use UI components like Lists (which seem to work in tandem with Models and Stores)
2) Persist objects using Sencha
3) Leverage Sencha to maximum potential (will not using Models/Stores hurt me in the long run?)
Any help would be appreciated.

I think you can have the best of both worlds. How you get your data, and how components consume the data are separated into two different concepts - Proxies and Stores
Sencha's data package doesn't lock you into any particular paradigm. We do ship with an array of proxies:
But you can create your own. Luc Stakenborg created a couple to integrate with SharePoint services that leverage SOAP.
I hope this helps.
