If you're OK with Maven2 & having it download what it needs, then I'd
suggest downloading the wicket-template from wicket-stuff
as that's about the smallest thing going...

  Just down to the defintion of "appserver" - all that's needed is
servlet container functionality - We tend to use Jetty as it's easy to
embed in IDEs & run standalone, but there's no requirement for it over
any other servlet engine.

No, while there are books on the way, the info's mainly in the
 1 - Javadocs 
 2 - Quick Tour & Examples
(http://wicket.sourceforge.net/Examples.html &
 3 - Wiki (http://wicket.sourceforge.net/wiki)
