I've been poking around in EXTJS. What I find most confusing is stuff like scope and the apply stuff. Will you book clear up things like when to reference a function by just its name verses its name plus its arguments? How about extending objects the proto type way or a better way? How will knowing developer tricks that create javascript frameworks help me as a plain old developer that uses the framework? Where would one turn to get a real good solid understanding of javascript.
I've developed a couple of application using Groovy and never want to write plain java code any more. Why still use just plain java coding when it takes so much code to get a little done? It seems like the new scripting languages like Groovy, Scala and even the new stuff from Red Hat, Ceylon, are easier and quicker to code with.

Is this a framework? Using Ext JS is it possible to simulate a desktop application...like doing all db access in the background, having similar desktop controls like drop down list boxes, scroll boxes, radio button...etc? With this tool can I reproduce same type of behavior as an application written in Flex?
Do you think javascript or html5 will ever some how be able to access the iphone ios for the lower level stuff like camera control?
I have worked with Flex Builder 3 using PHP as middle layer to back-end. I was able to test/debug seamlessly, stepping thru the flex code and the php code, via Zend Studio. Would I be able to do the same with some other IDE for Java, like Netbeans or Intellij?

I visited HADOOP website. It looks vary complicated and is composed of many parts. Does your book make this new technology easier to implement, understand and use.

Please don't think I'm trying to be a smarty-pants, but since I don't know the capabilities of the iOS, will having access to the capabilities of the iOS make that much difference? What capabilities would an iOS written app have that a non-iOS written app would not have.

iOS
I heard flash was going to be accepted as an Iphone development tool, is this true. Also is there any advantage to learning object-c vs using an environment like Sencha touch, javascript, html5 and css3?

I understand from hearing conversations and from Mr Jobs that the only languages allowed for IPhone development are object-c, html5, css and javascript. Is that true? What does you book cover? If you prefer a language, why?

Is it also possible to call an function within a swf file (mxml application) from javascript embedded in a html page?

Is your application build output directed to a web server like xampp?

Will/can one use flex objects in a web page like one can use a dojo widget. Like just using a flex datagrid embedded on a web page and having the ability to communicate with it via javascript?

Why would one use flex instead of just using java fx? Is one more able than the other?
