Hi Michael and Thomas,

I've been using Apache Wicket for the last two years and I'm very happy with it. Would it make sense to learn/use Seam instead? And if so: Why?

Wicket is a web framework. Seam is an integration framework that unifies many open source frameworks under a consistent annotation model.

So, ideally Seam would support "view" frameworks like Wicket. But we are not there yet. At this moment, Seam is somewhat coupled to JSF (although we do have examples showing how to use Seam with GWT and other JavaScript stuff in non-JSF settings).

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
