About the author: Kazuhiro Kotsutsumi was born in Sapporo, Japan, in 1979. He started using C/C++ at the age of 14 and proceeded to learn MASM, Delphi, ActionScript, PHP, C#, Perl, and more. Having worked as a project manager and a freelance programmer for one year, he established his company Xenophy CO., LTD in 2006. In September 2013, Xenophy announced the launch of Sencha Official Training in Japan, a fully localized course with Sencha's official training materials adapted for the Japanese market.

Ext JS is a pure JavaScript application framework used to build interactive web applications using techniques such as Ajax, DHTML, and DOM scripting. Originally built as an add-on library extension of YUI by Jack Slocum, Ext JS includes interoperability with jQuery andPrototype.

Ext JS Data-driven Application Design enables users to build databases using information from an existing database with Ext JS. It covers MVC application architecture, which enables development teams to work independently on one project. The book also teaches readers about the advanced charting capability, enabling developers to create state-of-the-art charts. These charts are compatible with major browsers without needing to rely on plugins.

The book shows readers how to make SQL and tables in MySQL, developing the project environment, and introducing Sencha Cmd. Readers will learn to create a form to input data and monitor the state of the input, while seeing how Ext Direct will validate the form on the server side. By the end of the book, users will be able to customize their working applications to suit their needs.

This book is for intermediates in Sencha Ext JS. Familiarity with JavaScript and basic operational knowledge of MySQL is required. This book will be useful for developers who want to systematically construct an application from the first step to implementation.
