I already own the copy and Like it; I am just wondering if you guys are gonna come up with content for DataProvider (it was mentioned as chapter X) in the book. We use DataProviders being DataProvider<MODEL> (as in model specific) and not for the page per se. I was wondering if there is a second book in coming ... or am i mistaken about something ??
As in what are the best practices for using DataProviders etc. [ May 19, 2008: Message edited by: Anirudh Vyas ]
I read the introduction of the newly introduced framework WICKET. it is interesting. how helpful it is separating the business and data layer in the enterprise application. what could be the simplified features added in the new framework.

Thanks! I must confess, sometimes I even use the book to look stuff up :-). I like the idea that the book is even useful for me.

We had planned to include IDataProvider and its cousins (DataTable and other repeaters). Unfortunately we are on a budget with respect to the number of pages we can use. One of the things that we could not include was this part. We also had to exclude chapter 3 (setting up a wicket project), but we will make "setting up" available as a bonus/free chapter.
We are confident that you will be able to use IDataProvider and the DataView/DataTable using the knowledge from Wicket in Action. We tried to lay the foundations for grokking the framework and its programming model.

Speaking for both Eelco and myself, there is definitely no second book coming from us (at least in the foreseeable future). We both need to get reacquainted with our friends and family, and have wives that would kill us if we were to embark on such a mission [ May 20, 2008: Message edited by: Martijn Dashorst ]
I have read the introductory chapter of Wicket in Action, and found it very interesting and useful. I was completely unaware of such kind of framework. But now I am keen to learn all the other things Wicket provides.
