What’s Up with Wicket 8 and Java 8 – Martijn Dashorst
The Apache Wicket community is working hard to build the new major release of Wicket. One of the tentpole features is the move to Java 8 as a minimum requirement. Why did we do that, and how does this improve my Wicket code? Learn how to apply Java 8 features such as lambdas and the new DateTime API in your Wicket applications, and learn what else the community is creating for your benefit.
Less code is better and by using Java 8 and Wicket together you can really get your line code down.
