Thanks Olivier, Iskandar, and James!

After getting Weld integration to work with the weld-wicket jar I
realized that the integration is limited to classes that subclass from
WebPage (or Page I suppose) to work within a request cycle.  I cannot
inject a DAO into a session or a singleton into an application class for
example.  In a JSF2 project there is no limitations.  Plus the ability
to annotate scope would be nice.

This makes me wonder what the future holds for Wicket and JEE6.  Is
there work being done to fully integrate Wicket with JEE6's newly
defined set of supported JSRs?

It would be nice to see a comparison chart of JEE6 features and Wicket's
current and expected future support for such features.  I've been
searching for something like this but haven't found anything.

I'd love to see Wicket fully support JEE6 and become a drop in
replacement for JSF2.  This doesn't seem to be the case just yet.  If
I'm wrong be sure to let me know!

Wicket has very good support in Weld, but to make it work I had to
the weld-integration.jar, otherwise the sample Numberguess application

If you don't want to do it by hand like suggested by Iskandar, you can
download one of the Glassfish nightly builds, this is what I have done.
latest builds are integrating Weld 1.0.1-final and the problem vanishes.

If you want, I can provide you the maven profile to make the sample work
nicely when you hit the "run" button in Netbeans, because there is
problem with the samples : the maven profile is not including the slf4j
libraries, so there is an error in Glassfish when you run the sample. I
assume this may be your next problem :)

Also, you may run into trouble with the JPA2 code generation if you are
using maven. But if you are using Eclipse annotation preprocessor to
generate the metadata, you won't have the problem.
