Before I go into the manuscript production details, I’d like to take a moment to thank each and everyone of my readers and supporters. I began this project late in 2008 and have had tremendous support from the Ext JS community, reviewers, family and friends. This has been an absolutely fantastic ride and I am grateful to all who supported me through the nearly two years.

Production Stats

RELEASE DATES: The pre-ordered print books will begin shipping 11/12 and will be released for sale from on November 15th.
EBOOK: The ebook will be released week of 10/31/2010.

I’d like to also publicly thank the Manning team for working with me and doing such a wonderful job!

If you are going to SenchaCon 2010, I will have five printed copies on hand to give out during my talk on 11/16. Hope to see you there!

Now that Ext JS in Action is complete, what will I be working on? Two things, actually – “Ext JS in Action Second Edition” and “Sencha Touch in Action”. If you are interested in co-authoring “Ext JS in Action Second Edition”, I’d like to talk to you.

    Hi mr Garcia! I would like to thank you for this really helpful book. I have been working with the pre release ebook and managed to build a REALLY big single page application. Your use of extended objects design pattern should be the standard for Extjs coding on the Extjs example pages. I think this book is a must read for people looking to go beyond those single widget use.

    I am looking forward on receiving my printed copy AND the second edition!

    Hi dkarso,

    THank you very much for the kind words. I am so glad that you’ve found value in the manuscript. I hope others can learn from it as well.


  3. [...] rarely release them due to serious time constraints. With Ext JS in Action coming to a close and going to print, along with other things going on, our releases of new Ext JS extensions has been slowed down [...]

    Quick question: I bought an early release of “Ext JS in Action”. Printed, June 29, 2009.

    How do I get the current release?

    Hi Daleedom,

    You will get an update within the next day or so with the final ebook :)

    Awesome book! Really enjoyed every bit. Just curious though… can you post a video or blog on what Firebug extention you’re using? I do see YSlow but not sure about other ones. Would be curious to see other tools you’re using for this. I even wonder selenium would work too. It would really be helpful if you can share that info!!

    Thanks sealone. I’m simply using firebug. I’m not doing anything with testing though :( .
