One of my former client runs the biggest mail provider in Europe.
There the application was serving 200 000 users at normal load and 500 000
at peak times.
It is not like Facebook but also it is not the average web application.

See above.
It scales with the knowledge of the engineers.
It is not just Wicket when you need big scale application.
It goes from the OS configuration, to the selection of the databases, the
web server config and good application code.

First you need to answer yourself what kind of application you need. What
is its target audience. What developers you have. Wicket is just a tool in
the box.
If you want to be developer above the average then experiment with new
technologies. Only this way you will have an opinion. I can tell you
anything good or bad about any technology  (they all have their
shortcomings) but this should not be a reason to use it or drop it from the
I personally try to use only technologies that *I* like, not because the
marketing team of some company said that their product is the best.

Good luck!
