Introducing Apache Wicket

Invented in 2004, Wicket is one of the few survivors of the Java serverside web framework wars of the mid 2000's. Wicket is an open source, component oriented, serverside, Java web application framework. With a history of over a decade, it is still going strong and has a solid future ahead. Learn why you should consider Wicket for your next web application.

Work with JavaScript and CSS

Global JavaScript libraries and CSS styling mix properly with component local JavaScript and CSS resources. You can use custom component libraries that ship with default JavaScript behaviour and CSS styling, without having to do anything yourself. Creating such self-contained component libraries is as easy as creating a JAR file.
