New MapFish application live

The "French Institute of radioprotection and nuclear security" publishes through MapFish various indicators related to radioactivity.

It would be interesting to know what is the added value of MapFish in that project. What I see is an ExtJS application with an OpenLayers panel. Is MapFish involved on the server side then ?

Thanks Guillaume, this gives me the opportunity to present some MapFish features used in this project:
- The MapFish Layer Tree to present the layers and the legend
- The Searcher that allows to know how many features are on the screen
- The Query tool to access to the attributive information
- The map panel to present the data
and on the server side, the MapFish RESTful API is used to access the data.
