I am very disappointed with Packet Publishing for put out a book that can only be described as a half finished effort. The example files do not work as described by the book. The sentence structure is very hard to follow.

A bit of a letdown 19 Feb 2014
By Iwan van der Schoor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've been very happy with Packt software books, I have quite a few in my collection but this one was a bit of a letdown.

I expected to get a solid understanding of Ext.Direct, how to properly use it, what kind of backend it would require, etc, etc.
Instead what I found was a "recipe book", basically as you read through it, and copy and paste along, eventually you end up with a below average application. I think the focus was too much on large sections of code, instead of a more educational book on the concepts of working with Ext.Direct.

About the first 40 pages are dedicated to getting an environment setup with mysql, php, data model designs, select statements.

I didn't enjoy this one very much, I learned some new stuff, but overall in my opinion not a recommended book on "how to start working with Ext.Direct"
Great book for your web development 17 Feb 2014
By Philip Arad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
If your organization is planning on developing its online application, it has to make the right choices for the Web libraries it is going to use.
Sencha Ext JS JavaScript framework is the most suitable package for the Enterprise level app.
Sencha Ext JS brings cross-browser high-performance UI widgets and rich data management libraries to the app development, enables developers to use a model-view-controller (MVC) architecture, and delivers the most advanced charting and graphing capabilities of any JavaScript framework.
For best using this library, I recommend you to read the last book from 'Packt Publishing': 'Ext JS Data-driven Application Design' (see: bit.ly/JD8klx).
The book is a very useful hands-on practical guide for both intermediate and expert JavaScript developers. It will show you how to develop a real-life application that can read from and write to a database, using the framework's most advanced features.
The book will lead you through the database structure of the application and its design structure using the MCV (model-view-controller) pattern—decoupling the UI, data, and business-logic.
It discusses forms to input data and validate it, list and tables to view and search the data, optimization of Ajax requests to the server, implementation of data displaying with different types of graphs on the dashboard and the implementation of data import/export.
The book describes in detail each subject with extensive examples that you can use and adapt for your own purposes.
By using all the features introduced in this book, you can use this great architecture to build your own applications and to address correctly the problems you encounter when developing your applications and web sites.
I learned many ideas from this book and was inspired. 9 Feb 2014

If you are totally beginner of Ext JS, and want to learn how to implement a real-life application with it, I recommend “Mastering Ext JS“. Because the contents of “Ext JS Data-driven Application Design” is quite unique and I don’t know it’s a best practice or not. That’s why I think it’s not fit for a beginner.

The other hand, you have experience of Ext JS app development, and want to learn how to create more quality architecture, this book might be for you. You will learn a new concept and it would be a hint to consider how to create a higher-level applications. I learned many ideas from this book and was inspired.
Condensed but useful 8 Feb 2014
By Luigi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read very quickly this book, that is short and condensed. It is a step-by-step guide that drives you through the building of an ExtJS application that interacts with data. It explains how to leverage on ExtJS MVC model for building a robust and easy to mantain application. I appreciated especially the Reporting chapter, where it's explained how to use data for builing charts (that are part of the ExtJS framework).
Review comment 3 Feb 2014
By Alok Ranjan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book seems to be the first book which attempts to explain step-by-step process to create the whole application using ExtJS. Most of the book often talks about the concept, which at times leaves some of the key aspects of application development and support. After following the book very closely, eventually you get an application and that should give confidence to first timers who want to build their own application.

While I had a bit high expectation from the book, I must say that the overall presentation is pretty average. I found that words used in the book were often the synonyms which I am not very used to. So, it took some time to have appropriate mapping of words with the concept. At times I felt as if the author has put some incorrect word. However, after reading couple of chapter it was clear that instead of creating a class the author is making a class. Also, I wanted to build the application incrementally and it took time to understand the incremental changes and put them into main project.

Some of the statements were so casual that I was wondering what was the need for putting that statement. For example in one of the place the author says “It has been a while since we saw an image, so we’ve displayed a column for now; however, let’s start to create the necessary objects for this list.”.

Of course I am passionate about Sencha ExtJS and after going through this book at times I felt that the reader will get an impression that the ExtJS is something difficult to grasp and master. The presentation of content could have been much better. I would have liked to see the basic concepts of an application being explained and then make use of that concept to give the readers the step-by-step process for creating an application. I felt that there was too much to-and-fro and reference to Component Testing again and again was a killer.
