In a couple of months we’ll publish the first demo that will show an automated generation of a CRUD application using use Ext JS, CDB, MyBatis, and Java. Why MyBatis? Because we like writing SQL, but the demo that uses Hibernate will come shortly after. We already started a new consulting project to prove that we can eat our own dog food, and this food has a good taste.
Thanks for your article.
I would like to know your opinion about the GWT framework.
I’m curious to know which framework you (will) use to generate the JSON for ExtJS from Java. I’m working on a project using MyBatis, Spring and ExtJS. I’m looking at the MappingJacksonJsonView but it seems difficult to add properties to the standard response layout (for example “succes:true”).
We’re considering creating our own solution, but it’s a bit early to talk about it.
Interested in if you checked out knockout.js or backbone. Knockout is a lot like flex development- where views are automatically updated by their corresponding model objects.
I have written a lot of flex apps using mvc frameworks and always appreciated the data binding.
JS feels like the wild wild west but knockout makes it feel a little better.
Thank you for the info.
Do you have any opinion of WaveMaker?
Have you guys considered Grails for the backend? It’s Spring MVC and Hibernate under the covers (along with a few other things). It works fantasticly well with ExtJS with out of the box support for JSON.
Thanks for your view.
Good demo of Ext JS: http://vimeo.com/35946811 – video about an hour with coding examples.
