OpenLayers provides the mapping foundation for your web application. To build an application with rich user interface components, OpenLayers is best paired with a UI framework. There are a number of full-featured UI frameworks available; Ext JS, Dojo (via Dijit), and YUI are popular frameworks with good layout controls and widgets. This module provides examples of OpenLayers integration with jQuery and jQuery UI as well as with Ext JS.

In this module you will use the jQuery UI and Ext JS libraries to create widgets that interact with your OpenLayers map.
