Wow. It's been an insane 24 hours.
It all started by me posting this simple question on the wicket mailing list:
Anyone have some fancy integration of hibernate and wicket?
Why don't you write one?
And so it began...
After a flurry of research into this area, I've whipped together a hibernate/wicket object that reads hibernate annotations and configures the wicket component respectively.
Essentially, right now it will auto configure a component by:
set component to be "required" when using NotNullannotation
add "maxlength" attribute when using Lengthannotation
Still lots of work to be done:
maybe integrate into the wicket validation framework?
The code is checked into wicket stuff and I'd appreciate anyone interested to take a look and let me know what they think.
