Today I decided to update my canned wicket test examples to the latest version of Wicket.
I still think Wicket is a really nice web framework for the following reasons, primarly.
- Hot deploy from the Maven archetype. The quick start setup offered from the Wicket site gives you “change-and-reload” out of the box.
- Unit testing framework built in. You test the logic of the web application without resorting to click simulation.
- HTML separation. Allows you to work in a tight loop with an interaction designer that can use any HTML editor.
