Why I’d choose Apache Wicket as a web application framework- part 4

Framework minus points
To be fair I have to say something about what I think are the current weakness of the framework:
Remember that Wicket has been developed for state-full applications. But there are a number of reasons why you’d want to opt for a stateless application.
Because if your application is stateless it means that requests can be processed by any of the web servers in your cluster, because all the parameters a page needs to reproduce a certain state are provided in the url. In a state-full application you either

Why I’d choose Apache Wicket as a web application framework- part 3

About Wicket and JS
Even from the beginning Wicket had Ajax capabilities built-in that could be called from Java. This is done by simply adding the Java component to an ajax context object, the AjaxRequestTarget. Of course you can invoke any JavaScript code before or after the Ajax call.
Currently Wicket uses its own JS engine for doing AJAX, but it integrates alongside other JS frameworks like JQuery nicely(there is a little thing to consider mentioned later though). Wicket does not generate any

Why I’d choose Apache Wicket as a web application framework- part 2

Component based framework with good concepts that appeals to developers
But the best thing for me is that Wicket really feels like a true Object Oriented web framework. All your components, pages, panels are Java objects (with a .html). Every web component extends a base Component class and can in turn be extended. Another way of creating components in Wicket is through composition of other web components inside a Panel. You can pack your components inside a jar file and bring them into another project and ideally a common library of components in your organisation might emerge. A place with generic open source components is the Wicket Stuff project or

Why I’d choose Apache Wicket as a web application framework

In a short description Apache Wicket is a good state-full component based framework which cultivates a sound architecture that appeals to Java developers. This is just going to be a general summary of the points of why you might want to have a look at the framework.
Let’s begin:
Clean separation of Java code from HTML
One of the best and most talked about Wicket feature is of course the clear separation of HTML from Java code.
No more Java code into HTML (yes that’s you JSP). In Wicket we have pages composed of panels with components and for every page/panel we get two files: a .java file and one .html file which sit next to each other in a java package structure (this could be changed and have separate locations for html and java files) and
