View Full Version : JSBulder File order for extjs 4.1

20 Feb 2013, 11:56 AM

Is the order in which I declare my files in the jsb2 file important? For example :

filesInclude : [{
text : "file1.js",
path : "path/to/file"
}, {
text : "file2.js"
path : "path/to/file"

Here file1 has a dependency on file2, but if I declare the files as above, will the single js generated by JSBuilder work? I'm using Ext JS 4.1.1

Depends on what is within those files. The basic rule is to load first the code which is used later in other files. To give you an example: if the order would be like you posted and if you instantiate a class in file1 which is defined in file2 then you will get an undefined error, or sth like this.

So say if after creating my app-all.js file using JSBuilder I get a file like:

Ext.define('MyClass1, {
requires : ['MyClass2'],
initComponent : function() {
var comp = Ext.create('MyClass2');
Ext.define('MyClass2', {
initComponent : function() {
//some code to create component
name : 'App',
// other config,
launch : function() {
this.view = Ext.create('MyClass1');

This will create an error?

Also, I get an error like

[ERROR] : 8641:4:syntax error

The debug file is created but the compressed one isn't. So how do I find the file which caused the error?

Got the problem.. I had used a json object of the form {class : 'somevalue'}. class is a reserved keyword, so YUI compressor was complaining. If i change it to "class" it compiles successfully

Yeah.. The file order is important.
