Apache Wicket

Apache Wicket is a component oriented Java web application framework. With
proper mark-up/logic separation, a POJO data model, and a
refreshing lack of XML, Apache Wicket makes developing web-apps simple and
enjoyable again. Swap the boilerplate, complex debugging and brittle code
for powerful, reusable components written with plain Java and HTML.

You can find out more about Apache Wicket on our website:

http://wicket.apache.org

This release is the fifth release candidate for the Wicket 1.4 product.
This release fixes several bugs and adds some minor improvements.  You can
