About the author :

Gerald Gierer has been involved in enterprise web application projects for more than 15 years and continues to find his work challenging and rewarding. He started his software development career working with C, PowerBuilder, and Unix, until the rise of the Internet and Java caught his attention. In 2004, he first heard of the Spring framework and quickly realized how comprehensive and well-designed an alternative this was to EJB. Since then he has architected and developed many Spring projects using a range of view technologies including JSP, JSF, Struts, Tiles, Freemarker, DWR, and YUI. In 2009, he became aware of Ext JS and was immediately struck by the power of this JavaScript framework. Having spent countless hours building complex web pages from scratch, Ext JS was a breath of fresh air for the client realm. He has been working with Ext JS ever since.

Spring and Ext JS are cutting edge frameworks that allow users to build high performance web applications for modern devices, that are now consuming data at a faster rate than ever before. Now's the time for users to understand how to best leverage these technologies when architecting, designing, and developing large scale web development projects.

Enterprise Application Development with Ext JS and Spring covers a variety of important Ext JS 4 strategies and concepts. The book starts with the configuration of Java, NetBeans, and MySQL to prepare the readers' development environment, and will then help them learn how to connect their NetBeans IDE to the MySQL database server. Then the book proceeds to explore the Task Time Tracker (3T) project database structure and populate these tables with test data.

Following on from this, the book covers how to examine core JPA concepts after reverse engineering the domain layer with NetBeans. Leveraging the Data Access Object design pattern, readers will learn how to build the Java DAO implementation layer assisted by generics in base classes, followed by a Data Transfer Object enabled service layer to encapsulate the business logic of their 3T application.The final chapters focus on Java, and explores how to implement the request handling layer using Spring annotated controllers, and how to deploy the 3T application to the GlassFish server. The journey ends by exploring the production build and deployment process using Maven, Sencha Cmd and GlassFish.

The following are the chapters in the book:
