Apache Wicket is an Open Source Project, component oriented, Java serverside web framework that creates maintainable, secure and scalable web applications using just Java and HTML. Its URLs do not expose sensitive information and all component paths are session-relative, and keep models private except for the parts voluntarily exposed. With it, the user can write AJAX applications without having to write a single line of JavaScript code. Wicket's Ajax functionality makes it trivial to update selected parts of a UI, and comes with a great selection of basic Ajax components. Also, pages and components in Wicket are real Java objects that support encapsulation, inheritance and events. Due to it, the user can create high level components with ease and bundle its stylesheets, JavaScript and other resources into one reusable package. Moreover, Global JavaScript libraries and CSS styling mix properly with component local JavaScript and CSS resources. Users can use custom component libraries that ship with default JavaScript behaviour and CSS styling, without having to do anything themselves. Wicket is a just Java and HTML framework. Despite it, it provides JavaEE integration, and CDI (JSR-305), Spring and Guice integration to inject users services into the users’ pages and components. This framework includes WicketTester, a testing coverage that test pages without having to run inside a browser and test components directly, check their rendered markup tags, attributes and contents with ease. Another benefit, that serves international users, comes with the idea that this framework supports over 25 languages that can be used to get started and provide them on the applications created, which will internationalize the app consumers. Wicket will also stun app consumers. Its automatic state storage ensures that they will be able to open pages in new tabs and windows without causing problems.
