Introduction to the OpenGeo Suite
Introducing OpenLayers and GeoExt¶
GeoExt combines the geospatial controls of OpenLayers with the user interface components of Ext JS into a framework that allows you to build rich desktop-style GIS applications for the browser.
We’ve seen both OpenLayers and GeoExt applications in the preceding sections.
- The GeoServer/GeoWebCache layer preview tools are built using OpenLayers
- Our published map application (and GeoExplorer itself) are built with GeoExt
In our evolving diagram of the OpenGeo Suite architecture, applications built using OpenLayers and/or GeoExt sit right at the top consuming layers, with/without GeoWebCache, from our local GeoServer.
