View Full Version : Extjs Chat Application

24 Jun 2015, 6:18 AM
I am new to extjs and i need to build a multiuser chat application using Extjs 4.1.3 framework.

I am wondering where to start from regarding the mechanism.

Is it okay to use web socket+java or shall i use simple extjs and java using simple database fetching?

Any suggestions would be helpful!!

There's a user extension available for 4 that looks to support websockets, which would be a good starting point for what you're looking to do. https://github.com/wilk/ExtJS-WebSocket

Can i use json ajax and websocket in a single application???
I already used json for my current application in which i want to introduce chat feature

Yes, there's nothing preventing you within the framework from using sockets along side your current implementation.
