Having said that, there's one big negative about this book. Sencha touch is based on the Model View Controller (MVC) concept. However there's is no explanation about how MVC is implemented in Sencha. I got onto the online forum provided by the author and Manning publishers to see if there are are any additional info on this topic or some articles. It looks like the last chapter in this book is supposed to bring all concepts together with MVC also being explained.
Having read that chapter, I can say that not much about MVC is presented. This should've been given a few pages of explanation in the book. If that couldn't be accommodated for some reason, the next best thing would've been to have some articles on the companion web site. The author and publisher should really look into this and rectify this shortcoming. Then this book would get a 5 star rating.For now it is only 3.5 stars. I will update my review & rating if the above is taken care of.
The book presents material first about the various mobile application components that are provided by the framework, and effectively contrasts their default behaviors and flexibility to customization. Then, the author covers the process necessary to package these components into a functioning application.
While I didn't use version 1.x of the framework, I appreciate when the author notes framework changes that might affect applications developed in the previous version.
The time the authors takes to delve into the object model through class hierarchy diagrams and component life cycles is incredible valuable as a foundation for exploring and extending the Sencha Touch framework.
The code samples provided in the book break up the prose with useful examples that clearly demonstrate the concepts presented in each section. The authors use these example to teach the framework piece-by-piece so that the reader is able to construct their own working components earlier in the book, and with the comprehensive third part of the applications by modifying the samples.
The only point of constructive feedback I have is: early on in the book, there are certain assumptions that the writers take about the readers knowledge of either Sencha or Ext.JS. Since I arrived at the introduction of this book cold on the ExtJS framework, I found myself to be marginally confused about certain calls and framework model attributes.
But, this does not persist through the book, and in the end I found this book to be a great hands-on introduction to the capabilities of the framework.
Detailed contents and excellent editing.
It's not a secret that if you are familiar with Ext JS you are half-away.
In fact, Seancha Touch is based on the Ext JS v4 as its core, but with a lot of improvements regarding performance.
One more thing to keep in mind: mobile-development is not the same as web-development. As a matter of fact the book itself suggests you the Ext JS in Action (Manning, 2010) book for web-development (same author).
Let's talk about the book.
Since the first chapters, you get the real feeling of how a mobile-sencha-touch-application looks like. It's just like native ones.
You will start dealing with the framework and the various ComponentManagers, which is something you need to understand well in order to work properly with ST.
After that, the book drives you to the UI world with layouts and UI-widgets. Here the book gives its best in my opinion - ST has a lot of widgets.
You will see a lot of example, codes and images in the book that describe in deep detail how widget works and how you stick them to your component manager.
After the all built-in UI-widgets you start dealing with data management and all comes with: data stores, models, proxies, List and NestedList.
As most of the books out there, there are also chapters about HTML5 media tags, GMaps and GeoLocalization.
In conclusion, if you need to develop mobile application and you do not want to handle (at least two) native codes, Sencha Touch and this book is all you need.
