We are proud to release Wicket Security 1.4 final.
Wicket Security is an attempt to create an out of the box reusable authenticating and authorization framework for Apache Wicket. It contains several projects which can be used standalone or in conjunction with each other.
After testing the codebase for a while we did not find any issues.
Differences between the 1.4-rc1 release:
Many thanks go to Olger Warnier for the initial port of Wicket Security to Wicket 1.4.
The release is available from the Wicket Stuff maven repository.
If you already depend on Wicket Security, all you need to do is modify the version of your dependencies in your Maven poms:
<repository> <id>wicketstuff</id> <url>http://wicketstuff.org/maven/repository</url> <snapshots> <enabled>true</enabled> </snapshots> <releases> <enabled>true</enabled> </releases> </repository> <dependency> <groupId>org.apache.wicket.wicket-security</groupId> <artifactId>swarm</artifactId> <version>1.4</version> <scope>compile</scope> </dependency>
Note that with future releases we will move to a new groupId and package name (since
org.apache.wicket is reserved for Apache Wicket, and not 3rd party projects).
The future of the Wicket Security project is to remain a standalone project (it will not be adopted by Apache Wicket), and will continue to be maintained by Topicus. If you wish to join please let us know!

Finally, the Web Framework of web frameworks, Apache Wicket, now has a bible of its own.
Senior Software Architect, Heimore group
Wicket is an innovative evolution of the MVC programming with simple roots, but without a primer such as this, it can be more challenging than it needs to be.
Founder, Bill2 Inc.
Wicket In Action glues the areas of web development with Apache Wicket together and gives a great overview of Apache Wicket...it will make a great compendium.
