Ext.Direct and MVC
I'm just starting to play with both, in a .NET MVC scenario, and I'm trying to reconcile it in my head. Ext.Direct seems to be mutually exclusive of MVC because the routing is happening at one place, as opposed to the MVC framework handling the routing. Am I wrong?
I'm trying to wrap my head around whether you could have a MVC friendly Ext.Direct? One that translates the clientside object model functions to a server side URL with the understanding that it will receive JSON back.
I'll have to dig some more into the code to grok it, but was curious if anyone else had an opinion yet.

If by MVC, you mean Model/View/Controller, then you have to realize that in the ajax world, MVC is a bit different and areas overlap.

We're also looking for answers to this question. We have an application that uses ExtJS 2.1 and the ASP.NET MVC Framework (where MVC does stand for Model-View-Controller, but in this case we're talking about a specific framework).
