Submission + - First Look: Sencha Architect (

snydeq writes: "InfoWorld's Neil McAllister provides an in-depth review of Sencha Architect, a drag-and-drop developer tool for building Web and mobile apps. 'Sencha describes Sencha Architect 2, the latest incarnation of its visual Web development tool, as "a massive upgrade to Ext Designer," the previous version. The name change from Designer to Architect reflects the product's new focus. Instead of a tool for building Web UIs, Sencha says the new version is suitable for creating complete Web applications, both for UI designers and back-end developers. That's true up to a point,' McAllister writes. 'Neither is Architect a full-fledged Web IDE like Adobe Dreamweaver. It's not a tool for opening up existing Web applications and tinkering with them, and you won't use it for simple text editing. It's really meant for building new, JavaScript-enabled applications from scratch, with automatic code generation for either desktop Web browsers or mobile apps.'"

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
