Example Thick Client App with EXTJS and Java

June 1, 2011

Following up my last post I wrote a small sample application using Java, EXTJS, Jetty and the djproject to create a thick client experience based on these components. I chose the djproject instead of mozswing since it is a lighter download and integrates with an existing web browser on your system instead of bundling an additional web browser with the application.I also provided a power point presentation that runs through the project and explains how it is implemented.

As always, please let me know what you think about this post.

  2. this sounds very interesting,

    I have recommended and used ExtJS as a web client javascript framework for my clients and they are very happy with the it, but I could never reach the speed and fluid performance of a thick client app, especially with keyboard controls.

    I am researching the best way to build a thick client app, that has high performance and can work on multiple platforms.

    Could you provide more info on your project..
