Hello,

I am considering using GWT for one of my projects, right now i am struggling to find good examples of using GWT with other frameworks like spring, acegi and hibernate, i have found a few books and articles to help me out but there's just too much plumbing to make it work i have even thought of switching to using DWR or a pure javascript solution but i am also considering wicket.

my question is, how well does wicket work with frameworks like spring, maven(i know it has extensive support unlike GWT), acegi spring security(very important) and hibernate are there any examples in your book of using these technologies together, perhaps a real enterprise - like application using wicket?

Chapter 13 shows how to use Spring/Hibernate/Wicket. Maven is not part of the book, but will come available as a free download (bonus chapter). If you want Maven now, you'll have to read the MEAP, as it still is part of the Wicket in Action MEAP.

We don't go into Spring Security, but I don't think that is very hard to achieve, considering Wicket Swarm has a Wiki document on how to integrate the two technologies. With chapter 11 "Securing your application", you will get all the knowledge necessary to build your own authorization/authentication classes and integrate them with Wicket.

And check out the phone book example. It shows a simple CRUD app based on Spring and Hibernate/ iBatis/ ShadesDB.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
