Re: Anybody Using Wicket



fixed

Thanks again Mihael. That is what is really intriguing to me about Wicket. I
can design the page as static HTML/CSS and use Wicket do generate the
dynamic data. Plus it's "component" based, which IMHO is the best design for
any UI.

I might check out GWT too. I'll see if I can get over my control issues with
the layout :-)

GWT: You code GWT in Java but the GWT compiler outputs Javascript which
is sent to the client. In the end you have a service layer with your
domain objects and the very thin gui layer of GWT. You could put a
facade between the gui layer and the service layer which transforms the
domain objects to objects for each gui type (in this case gwt).

I like Wicket a lot for its simplicity and to be able to have either a
clean HTML/CSS or one made by a HTML WYSIWYG editor. It works both.

Mihael,
Thanks! I like JSF to a point, but I don't like the lack of control I
have
over the HTML output. I tend to like to code my own HTML and CSS to make
it
look the way I want. I struggle a bit getting JSF to do this, but I've
only
experimented with it. That's where it looks like Wicket is a big winner.

I thought you had to code all the GWT stuff in Java. The only examples
I've
seen have been all Java code, no HTML, but maybe I'm missing something.
I do
tend to use JQuery or other libraries for visual effects.

I just started using wicket. It is a really good framework. It is the
obvious choice if you don't want to do JSF and want the code to be
primarily executed on the server. If you are doing much Javascript
then
GWT would also be an option.

My 2 cents

Mihael

Anybody using Wicket care to share their experiences? I'm looking at
different web frameworks and so far I think I like the concept of this
one
the best. I've use JSP/Servlet and JSF in the past. Not a huge fan of
JSF,
but I do prefer it to JSP's.

Thanks in advance,
