Wicket bridges the mismatch between the web's stateless protocol and Java's OO model. The component-based Wicket framework shields you from the HTTP under a web app so you can concentrate on business problems instead of the plumbing code. In Wicket, you use logic-free HTML templates for layout and standard Java for an application's behavior. The result? Coding a web app with Wicket feels more like regular Java programming.

Wicket in Action is a comprehensive guide for Java developers building Wicket-based web applications. It introduces Wicket's structure and components, and moves quickly into examples of Wicket at work. Written by core committers, this book shows you the "how-to" and the "why" of Wicket. You'll learn to use and customize Wicket components, to interact with Spring and Hibernate, and to implement rich Ajax-driven features.


  • All of Wicket's basic concepts and components
  • Security, localization, and internationalization
  • Creating custom reusable components
  • Wicket's Ajax and JavaScript capabilities
  • Working with databases and resources
  • Prepare your application for production
