What is it?

This is an example of how to use Wicket Framework 1.5 with JBoss AS, leveraging features of Java EE 6, using the Wicket-Stuff Java EE integration.

Features used:

  • Injection of @PersistenceContext
  • Injection of a value from web.xml using @Resource
  • Injection of a stateless session bean using @EJB

This is an EAR version, with the following structure:

    -`wicket-ear` - parent module
        - `ejb`: Contains EJB beans and JPA entities. Creates a `.jar` file
        - `war`: Contains the Wicket web application, which uses the EJB beans. Creates a `.war` file
        - `ear`: Packages the EJB JAR and WAR into an EAR. Creates an `.ear` file

System requirements

The application this project produces is designed to be run on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.1 or later.

All you need to build this project is Java 6.0 (Java SDK 1.6) or later, Maven 3.0 or later.

Configure Maven

If you have not yet done so, you must Configure Maven before testing the quickstarts.

Start the JBoss Server

  1. Open a command line and navigate to the root of the JBoss server directory.
  2. The following shows the command line to start the server:

     For Linux:   JBOSS_HOME/bin/
     For Windows: JBOSS_HOME\bin\standalone.bat

Build and Deploy the Quickstart

NOTE: The following build command assumes you have configured your Maven user settings. If you have not, you must include Maven setting arguments on the command line. See Build and Deploy the Quickstarts for complete instructions and additional options.

  1. Make sure you have started the JBoss Server as described above.
  2. Open a command line and navigate to the root directory of this quickstart.
  3. Type this command to build and deploy the archive:

     mvn clean install jboss-as:deploy
  4. This will deploy target/jboss-wicket-ear.ear to the running instance of the server.

Access the application

The application will be running at the following URL: http://localhost:8080/jboss-wicket-ear-war/.

  • You will see a page with a table listing the existing Contact entities. Initially, this table is empty.
  • Click on the Insert a new Constact link to add a new contact.

Undeploy the Archive

  1. Make sure you have started the JBoss Server as described above.
  2. Open a command line and navigate to the root directory of this quickstart.
  3. When you are finished testing, type this command to undeploy the archive:

     mvn jboss-as:undeploy

Run the Quickstart in JBoss Developer Studio or Eclipse

You can also start the server and deploy the quickstarts from Eclipse using JBoss tools. For more information, see Use JBoss Developer Studio or Eclipse to Run the Quickstarts

Debug the Application

If you want to debug the source code or look at the Javadocs of any library in the project, run either of the following commands to pull them into your local repository. The IDE should then detect them.

    mvn dependency:sources
    mvn dependency:resolve -Dclassifier=javadoc
