Welcome to the ‘Starting with Apache Wicket’ course. With this course, you are going to add value to your existing JAVA and Apache Wicket 9+ (with SpringBoot) knowledge by getting familiar with several techniques for solving specifically selected areas of JAVA web application development. We will focus on several topics often useful in corporate JAVA development but not exclusively. SpringBoot is being used here as an underlying framework, but solutions presented here are not specific to this platform and can be reused e.g. with recent Quarkus support, etc. The primary idea of this course is to help new or existing Apache Wicket developers to adopt certain knowledge in an easy way. The solutions presented are being used for several years in production-grade Wicket applications and the libraries used are well-known for stability and active development. This will protect the value invested into adopting some libraries or projects. What you’ll learnStart building real apps with Apache Wicket and SpringBootBecome a master in fullstack development using Apache WicketLearning-by-doing method of building real application and practice your knowledge immediatelyUse ajax client/server communication using Java onlyIntegrate 3rd party libraries into your Apache Wicket appAdd a new value to your existing SpringBoot development knowledge/skillsTopics covered by this course:During a course, we create a basic Apache Wicket single-page application and each lecture will add a new enhancement to it. Eventually, we create a single application with many different features. The main topics include:creating a full-featured single-page application using Apache Wicketexport application data in MS Excel format with formatting and some other featuresexport application data in PDF format with formatting, embedded images or bar-codesincluding MongoDB as persistent data storageusing GridFS as an attachment/file uploads data storage (PREPARING)An important part of this course is to realize ‘what we don’t need to do’ when using Apache Wicket. Simplification can be huge and the old saying that ‘the best code is the code you don’t have to write’ is proven here.GitHub repository:The source code is available through the link attached to the last lecture in this course. You can clone the repo and use the code snippets we are building in this course.Summary:‘Starting with Apache Wicket’ course is targeted at individuals or small/medium teams of professional Java developers that want to be productive and competitive in this large market. Techniques presented here can be reused easily in application development of many kinds.
