I understand that 350 pages is a constraint. So i would like to ask You what frameworks, utils, libraries etc. maybe some new and modern which do You prefer and recommend? (i think about whole web application development process) The masses needs the leadership

    What Martijn said. I also like Guice a lot, if only as an example of a well designed project. Joda Time is a great improvement over the Date and Calendar classes in Java. And personally, I would consider iBatis and Cayenne as ORM solutions for any next project I'd do. I'm using Hibernate now, and that works well, but is not without problems.

    I also like Scala. I can come up with many ifs and buts and reason why it might not make it as a mainstream language, but it can do wonders for compacting your Wicket code.

    We use Jetty too but only in development process. In production we use Tomcat. Do You recomend to replace Tomcat with Jetty in production? My friend said that clustering is easier in Tomcat. Is it true?

    What are IBatis or Cayenne advantages over Hibernate? We used IBatis in one project and we didn't saw any advantages but we could omit ones. We don't know Cayenne at all so i'm interested.

    I read a little about Scala and i keep it in my mind but i don't know how introduce Scala to Wicket projects. I'm not sure how does it should be seted up. Did You wrote any web application in Scala?
     
    I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
