Wicket in Action

Migrating to Wicket 1.5

26 April 2011, by dashorst

At my $dayjob Wicket 1.4 still rules supreme, but work is under way to migrate our apps to 1.5. Our migration experiences should make a nice blog entry, but meanwhile Alexandros Karypidis has published his experiences migrating from 1.4 to 1.5:

1) Maven dependency has changed

2) It's JavaScript (camel-case) not Javascript

3) Header contribution is now implemented in Component and Behavior

4) Template-base CSS and JavaScript (TextTemplateHeaderContributor) must now be contributed to the header

5) Page mounting

6) Mounting of global resources

Not too bad for a big upgrade. Of course, you can always refer to our 1.5 migration guide.
