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.
