Customer Reviews

This book is filled with so many code errors and text errors.
Randy Leinen
More importantly, the examples are poor, not delving into nearly enough detail nor covering the subject thoroughly.
James Ryley
I gave this book one star because you have to give it at least that much to publish the review.

This book is validation for brick and mortar bookstores as if I were able to see the book before I bought it I would have never made the purchase. The author, although perhaps extremely knowledgeable, offers no new information here that you cannot get on the web from Sencha and other sources. I bought the book primarily because it advertises building an MVC app with ExtJs. The app is very minimal and is essentially the same app you can find on the web. The book offers no real insights or explanations of how you would be a real world application. At best the book give a comparison of ExtJs 3 & 4. Don't waste your time or money. Go to the following Sencha sites and you will find more info than contained in this book. There are also many examples included in the sdk download. I gave this book one star because you have to give it at least that much to publish the review. Sorry to be so hard on the author.

Like some other say here you can find everything that is in this book on the web but there are two important things you have to keep in mind: you can't bring the web with you everywhere, and the book is well organized, it's not a mess like the web. So this book will help you to learn *quickly* ExtJS the right way.

You won't loose a lot of hours trying to find the right documentation at the right place.

Everything is here: what's new in ExtJS 4, then the Data Package, the Layout, the Charts, Grid, Tree, and Form, the Themes and the MVC application architecture.

One thing you need to know: it's for people who know well JavaScript (anyway ExtJS is a JavaScript framework!).

That said, this book is for you if you want to learn *quickly* ExtJS.

If you prefer to loose hours on the web to find the right documentation, then you may save a few bucks.

First, let me note that the book is full of errors and spelling mistakes. Not of any real concern, but perhaps evidences the effort that went into it. More importantly, the examples are poor, not delving into nearly enough detail nor covering the subject thoroughly.

As a previous reviewer noted, the book adds nothing to the material that can be found online for free. I read that review before purchasing, so I went into this with low expectations. I would have been happy with a well-organized, clearly explained version of just what is online, to save me the time of clicking around and finding it myself. Even with those expectations I was disappointed.

For someone that already knows EXT JS 3 and is looking solely for information on transitioning to 4, perhaps this book has some utility (though again, no more, and probably less, than what is online). For anyone new to EXT JS and perhaps thinking that this book will give them a general education on the topic, don't even consider it.

The book was an OK intro. I could get as much detail on sencha.com. the book needs to give more examples on an really web application using extjs and doing customizations.

Ext JS 4 is filled with a huge amount of functionality. When Ext JS 4 came out, it wasn't entirely clear how to upgrade your skills from Ext JS 3 to 4. In writing our Ext JS 4 / Rails dashboard, strategy map and scorecard software application,[...], we found this book to be a very, very helpful reference.

I'll start off by saying that I'm only 100 pages into it, but it's baaaaad. Some reviewers state that there's nothing here that can't be found on the web, but that's true of any tech book right? It's always on the web in my experience. What disturbs me about this book is the copious amounts of errors and other typos. I've never seen a book w/ so many! Was there no editor? Did the author not read their own work? Also, this book doesn't read well in English. I realize that English is not the author's native language, but I'd assume that it would be somebody at Packt's job to help w/ this. The lack of flow coupled w/ the rampant errors makes this book a tough read. Top that off w/ poorly conceived examples and you've got a real stinker of a book. Oh, and I might not win any points w/ this last one, but avoid Ext JS at all costs if you can.

As title says, the book is a very first look at ExtJs 4. I wanted to quickly get started with ExtJs 4 & this book helped me. This is not an advanced book but covers lot of the features with simple examples. This is for those who knows ExtJs 3 & ready to migrate their projects.
Some are complaining that there is nothing here you can't find on the web, well that is true for any other book but I like to read the book while am not online or travelling.

Has some coding errors but overall I like the book.
