This blog (and the other one hosted at the same provider) had difficulties connecting to the database. I have upgraded to a new version of mysql (the hosting provider recently gave the option to use myql5), so I also seized the opportunity to upgrade wordpress to the latest and greatest as well. Things should work as before without showing intermittent database errors.
As a new item for this blog, I’m going to publish a series of interviews I’m conducting with Wicket community members. I think these interviews can be very interesting for the grander community, as they will unveil the dirty little secrets of your co-community members. Of course the interviews will be mostly focussed on the relationship the interviewee has with Wicket, but I’m not adverse to asking a bit further than that.
The first interview I’ll publish was done with Nino Martinez Wael, and I have a couple more being processed. I’m aiming to publish an interview every week or so as long as I have willing victims. You are of course invited to ask more questions to our guests.
Like I announced about a week ago on my blog called A Wicket Diary, I have been creating a new companion website for Wicket in Action. This website will service as my new home for blogging about Apache Wicket, related events, community news such as releases and I’ll be writing about the book.
So don’t be a stranger, and add the RSS feed of this site to your news reader and keep an eye out for new content.
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.
