Yet another Java Web framework : Wicket

Wicket :

Wicket is a Java web application framework that takes simplicity, separation of concerns and ease of development to a whole new level. Wicket pages can be mocked up, previewed and later revised using standard WYSIWYG HTML design tools. Dynamic content processing and form handling is all handled in Java code using a first-class component model backed by POJO data beans that can easily be persisted using your favourite technology.

Designing and implementing any framework for use in the real world inevitably involves compromises and some degree of complexity, and Wicket is no exception. However, I believe you will find that Wicket is quite compact, focused and powerful as a framework. If Wicket has these characteristics, it is because it was designed to solve one very specific problem well:
enabling component-oriented, programmatic manipulation of markup
Wicket does this and very little else, and that is a good thing.

Still, Struts will stay the de facto standard for some more years …
