Full Description

Wicket is an open source, component-oriented (POJOs-based), lightweight Java web application development framework that brings the Java Swing event-based programming model to web development. Wicket pages can be mocked up, previewed, and later revised using standard WYSIWYG HTML design tools.

Wicket provides stateful components, thereby improving productivity. It has an architecture and rich component suite that aims to bring back the object orientation and, more importantly, the fun that is missing from the Java web development space. With the impending 1.2 release, Wicket is set for wider adoption.

Pro Wicket gets you up and running quickly with this framework. You’ll learn how to configure Wicket, then gradually gain exposure to the Wicket way of addressing web development requirements. You’ll want to pick up a copy because it:

  • Is the first book to cover the Wicket framework with Spring integration and Ajax features
  • Demonstrates all major wicket capabilities through simple examples
  • Covers important aspects like Wicket-Spring integration and Ajax support
