JavaEE Annotations in Wicket

Wicket Composite Image

Wicket is a Java framework where the presentation is done using standard WYSIWYG HTML design tools and dynamic content and forms are done in Java code using a component model backed by POJO data beans (see earlier TA entries).

The framework is gaining more traction (Pro Wicket book, OnJava Article) and it has elicited a number of positive comments including Geertjan, Simon and Guillermo and now Filippo has a new series, triggered in part by its work where he adds JavaEE Annotation support to Wicket 2. Other blogs entries are [1], [2], [3].

Wicket has run on GlassFish since early on (early blog), and the latest blogs from Filippo are also based on GlassFish.

Hi Eduardo, thank you for linking my posts! The wicket (and wicket-stuff) community is very active at the moment, we are rebuilding the website, and a lot of tools are under heavy development. So expect exciting news for our part. I hope to be able to release a beta of annotation support for Wicket1.X and Wicket2 in a week. And, they definitely work well with Glassfish! (I'm developing a Wicket1.2.4+EJB3+JPA application with Glassfish V1 at the moment)

Hi Filippo -- Looking forward to hear more about the evolution of these ideas. And, on a separate note, let me know if you have a deployment story on GlassFish. We are starting to highlight them in the new Stories site. - eduard/o
