Part 3. Going beyond Wicket basics


Now that you know how to use the components that come with Wicket, it’s time to take the plunge and build components yourself. In chapter 8, you’ll learn how to create custom reusable components. Chapter 9 gives you insight into working with resources such as images, JavaScript files, stylesheets, and CSV files. Chapter 9 also covers integration with third-party libraries to generate dynamic content using a captcha example.

Creating custom components is great, but creating rich components is more fun. Chapter 10 introduces Ajax and discusses how to use Ajax in your applications. You’ll learn how to create your own rich, Ajaxified components.
