Hello Martijn and Eelco,

I've got another question regarding your book...

Do you also describe the process of setting up a Wicket project in an IDE? I'd be particularly interested in integration with NetBeans. Unfortunately the table of content on your Manning page just says there's a chapter "Setting up a Wicket project" but with no detailed information.

Anyway do you have experiences with Wicket and IDE integration? At least there seems to be a plugin for NetBeans on Wicket's homepage but I haven't tested it yet.

Marco

This chapter will become available for free when the book is in the press. There was no room left for it in the final manuscript.

We don't use netbeans (to the disappointment of some folks), but rather Eclipse. It is a matter of taste though.

The best way to set up your project is to use Maven. The Quickstart page on the Wicket site provides a command generator to generate an appropriate skeleton project. This project can then be imported in eclipse, netbeans or IDEA using the maven integration for those IDE's or by using the commandline mvn eclipse:eclipse for eclipse users. Netbeans 6 supports Maven pom's directly.

Does the Eclipse plugin work well? I've used some Eclipse plugins that are severely lacking, so I'm a bit wary. What about the plugin for IntelliJ? Have you worked with it at all? How does it compare to Eclipse?

Thanks Martijn!

I've already used the Maven project import of NetBeans so I'm sure this will work as expected!

I've actually had my share of problems with the eclipse plug-in. The good news is you really don't need it to be extremely productive in Wicket. It's pretty much all just plain Java and your IDE is already very good at that.
