Welcome to Apache Wicket

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.

Apache Wicket 6.16.0 released

The Apache Wicket PMC is proud to announce Apache Wicket 6.16.0!

This release marks the sixteenth minor release of Wicket 6. Starting with Wicket 6 we use semantic versioning for the future development of Wicket, and as such no API breaks are present in this release compared to 6.0.0.

New and noteworthy

This release fixes 15 bugs and adds the following improvements:

  • Upgrade JQuery to latest releases - 1.11.1 & 2.1.1
  • Upgrade Atmosphere to latest version
  • Generation of wicket ids with prefix / suffix
  • Introduce CharSequenceResource similar to ByteArrayResource

The full list of improvements and fixes can be found at the end of this announcement.

With Apache Maven update your dependency to (and don’t forget to update any other dependencies on Wicket projects to the same version):

<dependency>
 <groupId>org.apache.wicket</groupId>
 <artifactId>wicket-core</artifactId>

</dependency>

Or download and build the distribution yourself, or use our convenience binary package

Upgrading from earlier versions

Apache Wicket 7.0.0-M2 released

We have released the first of a series of milestone releases for Apache Wicket 7. We aim to finalise Wicket 7 over the coming months and request your help in testing the new major version.

Caveats

It is still a development version so expect API breaks to happen over the course of the coming milestone releases.

Semantic versioning

As we adopted semver Wicket 7 will be the first release since 6.0 where we are able to refactor the API. We will continue to use semver when we have made Wicket 7 final and maintain api compatibility between minor versions of Wicket 7.

Requirements

Wicket 7 requires the following:

  • Java 7
  • Servlet 3 compatible container

You can’t mix wicket libraries from prior Wicket versions with Wicket 7.

Migration guide

As usual we have a migration guide available online for people migrating their applications to Wicket 7. We will continue to update the guide as development progresses. If you find something that is not in the guide, please update the guide, or let us know so we can update the guide.

Using this release

This is pre-release software: use at your own peril!

With Apache Maven update your dependency to (and don’t forget to update any other dependencies on Wicket projects to the same version):

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.wicket</groupId>
    <artifactId>wicket-core</artifactId>
    <version>7.0.0-M2</version>
</dependency>

Or download and build the distribution yourself, or use our convenience binary package

Have fun and let us know what you think!
