Wicket Web Beans 1.1 Released

Friday, May 22nd, 2009

After an overly long delay, Wicket Web Beans 1.1 has been released. I really appreciate Daniel Toffeti’s contributions.  Also thanks to Cemal at ( for pushing us to get this release out. jWeekend is gracious hosting the live samples for us (see below). Looking forward, Daniel is going to start on the Wicket 1.4 migration. And, maybe someday, I’ll get back to WWB 2.0. The code for it is on the 2.0 branch and you can experiment with it if you want.

Some News:

The project is now hosted on Google Code:

Wicket Web Beans 2.0 Features

Thursday, August 7th, 2008

One of the ideas I have for WWB 2.0 is to allow Apache JXPath expressions for instead of straight bean properties. Also, you’ll be able to specify the same kind of expressions for parameter values. This makes all parameter values dynamic – unlike most of the parameters in WWB 1.x.

JXPath functions can be implemented in Java. This would allow for a great deal of flexibility. For example, this would let you call a function for a parameter’s value and have some complex logic behind it.

Starting Work on WWB 2.0

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

I’ve got some new ideas and directions for Wicket Web Beans, so I’m starting work on 2.0. I hope to incorporate some of the previous requests and comments in an elegant and cohesive manner. WWB 2.0 work will proceed under branch wwb-2.0. I made a snapshot of the unreleased WWB 1.1 work in SVN under branches/wwb-1.1 prior to the 2.0 branch. WWB 1.1 work will continue on the trunk.

Databinder has been updated to 1.2 on the trunk and the wwb-2.0 branch. The wicketwebbeans-databinder*1.2 modules have now replaced the older wicketwebbeans-databinder* modules.

More on the new features I’m working on for 2.0 later…

Sunday, November 25th, 2007

The WWB subversion tree has been reorganized in preparation for the 1.0-rc2 release. The trunk now contains the Wicket 1.3.0-rc1 support and the wicket-1.3 branch is gone. The Wicket 1.2.6 support is now in the wicket-1.2.6 branch. In addition, the Java packages have been renamed from wicket.contrib.webbeans to net.sourceforge.wicketwebbeans to be more consistent with Sourceforge projects.

Working towards RC2

Sunday, October 21st, 2007

I’m working towards getting Wicket Web Beans 1.0-rc2 out. We’ve added a few features and Mark Southern has been working on a API to integrate WWB with Databinder. It’s looking good and should be out in a few days. One of the last major steps is getting the Maven snapshots releases out to the snapshot repository and releases on
