In Detail

Sencha provides one of the most popular frameworks to build RIA applications (using ExtJS) and HTML5 compliant mobile applications (using Sencha Touch). Creating an application is always easy, but creating a highly maintainable and scalable application is challenging without having solid architectural practices in place.

"Sencha MVC Architecture" covers all the aspects, from project design to building and packaging, creating and delivering an enterprise-class application by applying Sencha MVC Architecture. Every concept is supported with a functional code, which you can quickly try out and also understand how it works.

The book presents the general MVC architecture and presents a case for the client-side MVC architecture and their importance. You will learn why we need to have client-side MVC architecture and how the concepts map to the Sencha MVC Architecture. You will then learn how to create an application in ExtJS as well as Sencha Touch by applying all the concepts and classes of Sencha MVC Architecture. The step-by-step approach helps you build a working application without getting into the detail of the constructs yet explains how things work. The later part of the book will explain the Sencha MVC Architecture constructs in detail – class system, loader, controller, etc. and the best practices introduced by the framework. The end of the book will walk you through the challenges that you will face when you model your application using the Sencha MVC Architecture and also show you how to overcome each one of them. You will learn how to make use of the tools to manage your project beginning from the project creation to delivery.


This is a step-by-step tutorial with plenty of example code for easier and quicker pick-up.

Who this book is for

If you are new to ExtJS or Sencha Touch, this book will help you model your application using good architectural practices so that your application is enterprise-class from day one. If you have already been building ExtJS or Sencha Touch based applications, this book will show you how to apply the client-side MVC architecture and benefit from it. It will show you how you can leverage Sencha’s MVC Architecture and the Sencha Tools to manage your projects in a better way.
