Im new to the OpenGeo Suite, and was wondering if I should create my apps using the SDK Link Here Or I should use openlayers and GeoEXT Link here

I believe the SDK uses openlayers / geoext but makes the creation of map applications user friendly? I just need to know what to use each for in the terms of a new user


I want to create an app that displays layers, I have done that with the SDK pretty easy with GXP. However I also want to add graphs/charts to the maps, this is where I am unsure which route to go down. The user would click on a point and would be able to view a chart of that points change over time.

They serve different purposes, so to get a meaningful answer, you;ll need to explain what you are trying to do, in much more detail (you can do this - just click edit below your question), what the constraints and objectives are, and what you've already tried (and how that went). – BradHards Jul 18 '13 at 23:00
