Martijn and Eelco,

Thanks for joining us here at the JavaRanch. I haven't had any previous exposure to Wicket, but your introductory chapter makes it sound like it's worth taking a look at.

I see your book does have a chapter on Internationalization and Localization. Can you give us the elevator pitch on how Wicket addresses these topics and what is easy (and maybe what's hard) with this framework?

I think much of your question is covered in this thread.

The other part is that Wicket uses resource bundles by default to obtain internationalized messages. You can create a MyPage.properties, MyPage_nl.properties for each locale and inside provide key/value pairs for feedback messages, labels and texts you use in your page. If you want to provide such things on an application level, you can use MyApplication.properties and MyApplication_nl.properties to provide either default, or centralized internationalized messages.
