Migrating to Apache Wicket – GIDS presentation slides
May 26, 2008 9 Comments
The ‘Migrating to Apache Wicket’ presentation I made at the Great Indian Developer Summit last week went off well. It was great to see the interest in Wicket, the room was full and there were quite a few questions even during the course of the session before I got to the end.
Here are the slides for your viewing pleasure. Apologies if some of the slides look cluttered because the animations I used to talk through some of the slides have been lost after converting to PDF.
Here below is one of the images I used to illustrate how a project that starts out using an action-oriented MVC framework with JSP can end up with a ‘Franken-stack’ over time. It starts innocently enough, you decide to use something extra say to enforce a common layout, then you realize you need some third party tag-libs, then security, and of course Ajax and before you know it…
What if a framework exists that can do all of this in Just Java and Just HTML? Find out more.
Hope you find the slides useful. I look forward to your feedback and suggestions on how the content can be improved. Please do comment!
