Also, sometimes you can have class path issues if you have duplicate
jars with different versions in your class path, so I'd check for that
as well. Finally, Tomcat can be funky when it comes to where you put
these jars, so you may have to play around with putting it (only) in
WEB-INF/lib or one of the Tomcat shared directories.

And my 2c on that is that for years I've used Wicket (and in fact are
one of the core contributors) but nowadays stay clear of Java web
frameworks altogether. I tend to use just plain HTTP services using
Jersey/ JAXRS and JavaScript directly (e.g. using jQuery, though I
might throw in a framework like Angular). The only thing left then is
something to dispatch requests and handle security. I use Wicket for
that, just because I know it well, though you could just use a servlet
filter for it or a light framework like HTMLEasy, which seems like an
excellent choice.

Good luck,
