The power of Wicket is his big awesome community. I heard that Wicket have a lot of contributors. This have some pluses and some minuses. How Wicket leaders secure code quality, design quality and Wicket quality at all.

I'd like ask question for Agile and TDD fanatics "Do You like Wicket?"

a lot of it comes down to democratic process and arguing out decisions. Wicket has a very healthy community decision-making process among the core team. another thing is that not everybody is an equal contributer. some people do more work than others. finally, the work tends to break down into areas and there are de-facto specialists for each area

Indeed...
Tapestry is controlled mainly by HLS.
In spite he is a champion and no one could argue but this is slowing down Tapestry development process IMHO.

This is something I'm interested in as well - testability. For example, when test driving some component I don't want to have to stub half the known universe just in order to get the tests running. Has Wicket been developed with testability in mind? For instance, does it ship with a collection of mock objects that facilitate easy testing - like the Spring framework does?

If you read the free online chapter 1 from Wicket in Action, and take a look at the Echo example in 1.3.3 (iirc) which uses a form and a text field to submit some text and display it again. In chapter 14 we create a test that exercises this form:


You can take a look at companion examples in our WIcket in Action project at google code: http://wicketinaction.googlecode.com

Thank you for your reply, also in this thread.
I also own the book Test Driven, but I must admit I skimmed over the chapter on test-driving web components.
So much to read up on, so little time...
I'll definately check out the free chapter of your book when I get the chance, and also the chapter in Test Driven again, I guess
