As Wicket Security will not be adopted into core, we’ll be changing
the package name and project name going forward. We’re still not sure
about the final name, but these two are the runners up:
Both are nice names, and both have their pros and cons. Let us know
which one you prefer.
Furthermore we’ll be adding new annotations such that you’ll be able
to authorize your pages using a Java class (for the principal) and an
annotation on your page to specify which principals are required. This
will eliminate the need for the policy files.
These changes will come in the first 1.5 milestone release.
We expect to release the first milestone in a week or so. The final 1.5 release will occur some time after Wicket 1.5 has been finalized.
The Wicket Security project WASP/SWARM has released a new version: 1.4.1
News worthy changes:
You can download the release from the Wicket stuff repository:
Or upgrade using the following in your pom:
<dependency> <groupId>org.apache.wicket.wicket-security</groupId> <artifactId>swarm</artifactId> <version>1.4.1</version> </dependency>
With this book, Wicket will become the greatest territory the Dutch have settled since Manhattan.

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.
