Sencha Touch - Creating custom views

 Sencha allow developers to easily develop MVC based mobile application. Now I am going to explain the steps for creating custom views in sencha application. Before going to start, see my previous post for understanding the folder structure of sencha touch application (here).
 Inside the view folder I am going to create a MyView.js file with following code.
      extend : 'Ext.Panel',
      xtype : 'myview',
      config : {
            fullscreen : true,
            html : 'This is my own view'

 Here I have extended a Panel class and included a simple html content, whenever it's render, it's says "This is my own view". The "SenchaDemo.view.MyView" have special meanings.

    1. The "SenchaDemo" refer my application name.
    2. The "view" refer the view folder present in app folder.
    3. "MyView" is my view name.
    4. "myview" is my custom xtype value.

 Now I am going to include my custom view into my app.js file. The app.js file is starting point of my application and I have included the following code into app.js. The Ext.application used for loading all the necessary components and indirectly it call the launch function when all the files are loaded successfully. It's equivalent to onload function in web application.

 Here views : ['MyView'] includes the MyView into application. You can include the more then one view using comma separator. For example views : ['MyView','MyView1']. Now I am going add my view into Viewport.
      name : 'SenchaDemo',
      views : ['MyView'],
      launch : function() {
Now I am going to preview my application using safari browser. 

Here you can able to download this application.

Ext JS 4 – Creating web page using Ext.container.Viewport class and region propery

The Ext.container.Viewport is used for creating general web page and region property is used for splitting web page into different parts. Ext.container.Viewport is a specialized container represents the viewable area of the application (the browser area). It render itself to the document body, there is no need for providing renderTo property and it automatically sizes itself to size of the browser viewport. The viewport also re-size the child elements based on view area(based on browser width and height). The default layout of the viewport is border layout and we can customize this property according to our requirements. The viewport does not provide any scrolling. If necessary, the child elements(generally panels) within viewport needs to provide a scroll feature by using autoScroll property. See the below example for better understanding. This is Home.js file placed into app/view folder. Ext.define('MyApp.view.Home', { extend : 'Ext.container.Viewport&#

Simple Login Application Using Spring MVC and Hibernate – Part 1

 I hope developers working in web application development might hear about MVC architecture. Almost all technologies provide support for MVC based web application development, but the success is based on many factors like reusable of the code, maintenance of the code, future adaption of the code, etc..,  The success of the Spring MVC is “ Open for extension and closed for modification ” principle. Using Spring MVC the developers can easily develop MVC based web application. We don’t need any steep learning curve at the same time we need to know the basics of spring framework and MVC architecture. The Spring MVC consists of following important components. 1. Dispatcher servlet 2. Controller 3. View Resolver 4. Model Spring MVC - Overview  The overall architecture of Spring MVC is shown here.  1.
