Object Container / Adding Flash to a Wicket Application

General Object Class

First, we create a Object base class to extend for all kinds of embedded objects:

package org.apache.wicket.components.embed;

import java.util.List;

import org.apache.wicket.Component;
import org.apache.wicket.ResourceReference;
import org.apache.wicket.Response;
import org.apache.wicket.markup.ComponentTag;
import org.apache.wicket.markup.MarkupStream;
import org.apache.wicket.markup.html.WebMarkupContainer;
import org.apache.wicket.protocol.http.ClientProperties;
import org.apache.wicket.protocol.http.WebRequestCycle;
import org.apache.wicket.protocol.http.WebSession;
import org.apache.wicket.protocol.http.request.WebClientInfo;
import org.apache.wicket.request.ClientInfo;
import org.apache.wicket.util.value.IValueMap;

public abstract class ObjectContainer
    extends WebMarkupContainer
{
  // Some general attributes for the object tag:
  private static final String ATTRIBUTE_CONTENTTYPE = "type";
  private static final String ATTRIBUTE_CLASSID = "classid";
  private static final String ATTRIBUTE_CODEBASE = "codebase";
  
  // This is used for browser specific adjustments
  private ClientProperties clientProperties = null;
  
  public ObjectContainer( String id )
  {
    super( id );
  }
  
  // Set an attribute/property
  public abstract void setValue( String name, String value );
  
  // Get an attribute/property
  public abstract String getValue( String name );
  
  // Set the object's content type
  protected abstract String getContentType( );
  
  // Set the object's clsid (for IE)
  protected abstract String getClsid( );
  
  // Where to get the browser plugin (for IE)
  protected abstract String getCodebase( );
  
  // Object's valid attribute names
  protected abstract List<String> getAttributeNames( );
  
  // Object's valid parameter names
  protected abstract List<String> getParameterNames( );
  
  // Utility function to get the URL for the object's data
  protected String resolveResource( String src )
  {
    // if it's an absolute path, return it:
    if( src.startsWith( "/" ) || src.startsWith( "http://" ) || src.startsWith( "https://" ) )
      return(src);

    // use the parent container class to resolve the resource reference    
    Component parent = getParent();
    if( parent != null )
    {
      ResourceReference resRef = new ResourceReference( parent.getClass(), src );
      return(urlFor( resRef ).toString());
    }
    
    return(src);
  }
  
  public void onComponentTag( ComponentTag tag )
  {
    super.onComponentTag( tag );
    
    // get the attributes from the html-source
    IValueMap attributeMap = tag.getAttributes();
    
    // set the content type
    String contentType = getContentType();
    if( contentType != null && !"".equals( contentType ) )
      attributeMap.put( ATTRIBUTE_CONTENTTYPE, contentType );
    
    // set clsid and codebase for IE
    if( getClientProperties().isBrowserInternetExplorer() )
    {
      String clsid = getClsid();
      String codeBase = getCodebase();
      
      if( clsid != null && !"".equals( clsid ) )
        attributeMap.put( ATTRIBUTE_CLASSID, clsid );
      if( codeBase != null && !"".equals( codeBase ) )
        attributeMap.put( ATTRIBUTE_CODEBASE, codeBase );
    }
    
    // add all attributes
    for( String name : getAttributeNames() )
    {
      String value = getValue( name );
      if( value != null )
        attributeMap.put( name, value );
    }
  }
  
  public void onComponentTagBody( MarkupStream markupStream, ComponentTag openTag )
  {
    Response response = getResponse();
    response.write( "\n" );
    
    // add all object's parameters:
    for( String name : getParameterNames() )
    {
      String value = getValue( name );
      if( value != null )
      {
        response.write( "<param name=\"" );
        response.write( name );
        response.write( "\" value=\"" );
        response.write( value );
        response.write( "\"/>\n" );
      }
    }
    
    super.onComponentTagBody( markupStream, openTag );
  }
  
  // shortcut to the client properties:
  protected ClientProperties getClientProperties( )
  {
    if( clientProperties == null )
    {
      ClientInfo clientInfo = WebSession.get().getClientInfo();
      
      if( clientInfo == null || !(clientInfo instanceof WebClientInfo) )
      {
        clientInfo = new WebClientInfo( (WebRequestCycle) getRequestCycle() );
        WebSession.get().setClientInfo( clientInfo );
      }
      
      clientProperties = ((WebClientInfo) clientInfo).getProperties();
    }
    return(clientProperties);
  }
}

Flash Component

Then we implement our FlashComponent:

package org.apache.wicket.components.embed;

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.List;
import java.util.Map;

import org.apache.wicket.Response;
import org.apache.wicket.markup.ComponentTag;
import org.apache.wicket.markup.MarkupStream;
import org.apache.wicket.util.value.IValueMap;

	// valid attributes

Now you can just use it and add it to a Panel:

public class HeaderPanel
    extends Panel
{
  private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
  
  public HeaderPanel( String id )
  {
    super( id );
    ShockWaveComponent swf = new ShockWaveComponent( "swf" );
    add( swf );
  }
}
  <wicket:panel>
    <object wicket:id="swf" data="res/test.swf" width="700" height="70" style="float: right; margin: 15px 0 0 0;"></object>
  </wicket:panel>
