* there are three books written about wicket: two for beginners and
one for intermediate-advanced users.
* there is a searchable mailing list archive that spans years upon
years of users asking questions and getting answers.
* there is a wiki that lists examples and has some good articles.
* there is stack overflow questions and answers.

is there an answer to every single possible question out there? of
course not. no framework has that. look at projects like spring and
hibernate. do those have great documentation? i bet you would say
"yes". are their mailing lists any less busy than our own? no. so what
does that say?

if i had to make up a number i would say that armed with the resources
i listed you would be able to answer about 80% of your own questions.
and i think that is a pretty good number. there is a very active user
list to help you answer questions you cant answer yourself, usually
faster then a commercial support contract. for free.

not too shabby.
