Apache Wicket Cookbook

Geek7 Comments

Wicket has been apart of my workday for quite a few years now. I wanted to give back somehow. Today, it finally arrived!

Apache Wicket Cookbook

I was contacted last summer about this project and I accepted right away. I was excited to work with Igor Vaynberg on this book as he is a core committer on Apache Wicket. I frequently have used his advice and samples for many problems I have faced over the years. It was exciting to see a lot of the frequently used solutions bundled up into real-life examples that could be employed in all sorts of projects based on this framework.

The effort was a little longer than I expected. I completed the first chapter in August 2010. The final chapter was completed in February 2011.

While I can’t quite say “I wrote the book on Wicket”, I can say I reviewed it! And its worth the read…

Get the book here! No, I don’t make a cent off the book.

  • That’s pretty cool to contribute to the book and get credit.

    Being a .NET developer I had to Google Wicket, but the upside is I now I know what a POJO is.

    Java was my first programming language way back when Apple had the awesome MRJ Toolkit (Macintosh Runtime for Java), before they bought NeXT. It was a bit like HyperCard, but with Java as the code behind. Cool stuff, really easy to write GUI-based apps.

    You may as well be speaking Swahili to me, I take it this is some sort of geek tech programming thing, but my first split second thoughts were “what would you cook with ticket wickets? I didn’t know Brandon was into cooking?…”

    • I know you just want to talk ounces and heel drop….
