I liked the sample application in chapter 16/17.
However, here two suggestions how to improve:

1) Some features for a professional app are missing.
While this is unavoidable for a book, what about mentioning the limitations?
Esp. domain error checking is limited:
- Duplicated Department names not detected
- Unsaved form data not detected (this is IMHO major issue)
- Employee data error checking not there.
While these must not be completly handled in a book, some samples would be great.

2) It would be great to explain also the client/server communication of the example,
e.g. add a table with all URL's, http verbs and http response content.
(of course, it would not hurt to change them to a more RESTful style, too.)

Re: Suggestion: Add section "Still to be done" to sample application
this all sounds good, but to be honest, I'm focusing my efforts on Ext JS in action (4.0) and Sencha touch in action. smilie
