wicket and more web app frameworks


Simon Brown has started a series of blogs where he compares different web app frameworks including one for Struts and Stripes. Guillermo Castro joined in and provided a comparison for Wicket. Both seem to like Wicket alot [1], [2] and [3].

Checkout the GlassFish Extras page to see the frameworks and apps that are running on GlassFish.

AppFuse working with b40 of GlassFish

AppFuse Logo

Vince reports that AppFuse Works with b40 without having to modify the Security Manager. The situation should have improved for other frameworks that have assumed no security manager. Please Report on Any Problems with popular applications and frameworks.

More information on AppFuse is available at their Wiki Site.

Update: Check also Vince's Integration of AppFuse and NetBeans.

Wicket and GlassFish

Wicket Logo

Wicket is an application framework that emphasizes simplicity, separation of concerns and ease of development. The presentation is intended to be done using standard WYSIWYG HTML design tools while dynamic content processing and form handling is all handled in Java code using a first-class component model backed by POJO data beans. The Wicket site and wiki has plenty of more information, including examples to look at.

Seymour Cakes (located in Malaysia) has tested Wicket against GlassFish and he reports that all that is needed is to add some new permissions to server.policy. I'd bet this works too for SJS AS 8.1 (also in the J2EE SDK).
