Many people today know that Spring and Hibernate is "standard". I think it is good. But Wicket is brand new stuff and Wicket users want more new modern solutions which try to find new ideal web application developing - sorry for this fantastic tone

Does "Wicket in Action" describe how Wicket collaborate with such frameworks like Guice and Databinder?

Databinder is really cool, but we were already unable to include a couple of rather important core components in our budget for dead wood (350 pages +- 50).

So we had to cut on features and third party components and libraries. Guice is only mentioned in name, but if you read the Spring part, it is not hard to utilize Guice instead. I think the difference is: @SpringBean versus @Inject, and a couple of classes you need to set up in your init() method of Application. You can find more about the integration with guice here

The other principles are the same. We don't explain spring in detail, so it merely figures as an example of Wicket's integration with dependency injection frameworks.

Hi Folks,

I've written a very nice article about an alternative method for integrating wicket and guice, one that completely eliminates the need to configure wicket in xml, everything is done in java code (except the guice filter of course). It is now being featured on the guice wiki as well

Just wanted to share this with you, comments and opinions will be happily accepted.

It was a better ideas to start a new thread, not to post in unrelated thread.
But it isn't my business ...
