There is a lot of discussion around how to develop portlets using Wicket.
If you download a Wicket distribution package, there is the "Wicket Examples" webapplication WAR enclosed.
This package is not only a webapplication, but can also be deployed as a (collection of) portlets.

Here is how to run the examples as portlets:

  • Download Wicket (e.g. apache-wicket-1.4.3.zip)
  • Unzip the package
  • The Wicket Examples package enclosed is e.g. "wicket-examples-1.4.3.war"

Deployment

  • Login as portal admin (e.g. bruno@7cogs.com/bruno)

  • Optional context for deployment: wicket-examples
