With the new adapter for D3.js (Data Driven Documents library), Sencha is further helping organizations find efficient and intuitive ways to present their complex data for mobile and web applications. D3 provides spectacular visuals that go beyond normal charts and graphs to help users understand very large and complex data sets, and with the new adapter, developers can build visualizations that fit seamlessly into the user experience created within their Ext JS applications.

Using drag and drop features, developers spend less time on manual coding, helping organizations accelerate the time to market of their applications.
Key enhancements in Architect 4.0 include:
