Subject Wicket Web Beans 1.0-rc1 Released
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2007 18:58:21 GMT
In response to Jonathan Locke's blog entry entitled "Wicket on Wheels" (
I have released Wicket Web Beans 1.0-rc1. Although this project does not
cover all of the functionality Jonathan spoke of, I believe it covers a good
chunk of it. The project is hosted on Sourceforge at:
http://wicketwebbeans.sourceforge.net .

Wicket Web Beans (WWB) is a Wicket component toolkit for displaying and
editing POJOs that conform to the JavaBeans specification. Web pages are
automatically generated based on bean properties and certain conventions. If
necessary, the layout, editability, and actions of these pages can be
customized on an exception basis. In other words, the toolkit normally does
what you'd expect, but when it doesn't, you can override its behavior.

At the highest-level, WWB's BeanForm component provides rich AJAX form
functionality. The Page design that the form is embedded on is left to you,
this allows for customized page designs. Also, this allows multiple
BeanForms may be incorporated on a single page. At your choosing, other
lower-level components may be used independently of BeanForm (e.g.,
BeanGridPanel). WWB does not try to force you into a certain way of doing
things, but BeanForm makes it very convenient to implement a bean-based form
if you don't want to go to a lot of extra work. You focus on the model
(beans), WWB handles the user interface.
I welcome any feedback you may have. Please post feedback to the project
forums at Sourceforge.
