IMHO, your post looks at the wrong question (i.e., is Wicket perfect?). Of course it's not. No framework is.
A better question is: How does it compare to OTHER frameworks? This is subjective of course, but in my personal opinion it is far better than any other framework I've tried (Struts, JSP, ColdFusion, etc.). Yes, it has a learning curve, but so does any framework. Where I DO agree with you is that the documentation can be improved. But from what I've seen, it's improving as it matures. "RAM /abr./: Rarely Adequate Memory."

" This illustrates one of the traditional logical fallacies. If you can't effectively attack the argument, attack the speaker. My biggest problem with Wicket is that I haven't found any documentation on the web that really lets me get a solid grasp on the key concepts. I read a lot of poorly written "documentation", weak examples and forum posts dealing with something that is only vaguely related to my goals, maybe learn a fragment of useful info, and then suffer while trying to apply it. I haven't looked a Wicket in Action or other Wicket Books, but I have not heard good things. Also, this is the Internet Age and this is web programming. I have no problem finding documentation on other web programming languages/frameworks like I do with Wicket. If I am wrong, point me to some solid learning materials, and you stand a chance of changing my mind. geraldkw -- View this message in context: http://apache-wicket.1842946.n4.nabble.com/Apache-Wicket-is-a-Flawed-Framework-tp4080411p4081206.html Sent from the Users forum mailing list archive at Nabble.com. --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe, e-mail: users-unsubscr...@wicket.apache.org For additional commands, e-mail: users-h...@wicket.apache.org ** This email and any attachments may contain information that is confidential and/or privileged for the sole use of the intended recipient.
