The model supplied by Java Web Frameworks is broken. As software engineers start to break away from the shackles of Struts, a new model based on object oriented programming and a clean separation of concerns has emerged with Apache Wicket. The framework has a simple component hierarchy allowing for reusability without pain.

This session you will work with a real project, built with Apache Wicket and we’ll concentrate on components, forms, i18n, validation and AJAX support. We’ll touch on “The Standard” JavaServer Faces, the different approaches that Apache Wicket and JSF take, and in the end, how Apache Wicket can be used to reduce complexity and create more readable code.

Attend and learn:

  • Basics of Apache Wicket
  • Forms and Validation
  • Component Model
  • Internationalization Support
  • AJAX-enabling your Components
