Weaving Web Applications With Ease - Apache Tapestry - Ulrich Staerk, Senacor
Apache Tapestry is a component-oriented Java web application framework with a focus on simplicity, ease of use, and developer productivity. Some of Tapestry’s features include live class reloading in development mode, convention over configuration - eliminating almost all XML configuration, Post/Redirect/Get, and an integrated Inversion of Control (IoC) container, which allows almost all of Tapestry’s behavior to be configured or replaced.
Three years after the last major release of Apache Tapestry, 5.4 is just around the corner. In this talk Uli will give an introduction to Tapestry and speak about the new features of 5.4, such as the new framework agnostic JavaScript layer and Bootstrap integration.

Apache Wicket: 10 Years And Beyond - Martijn Dashorst, Topicus B.V.
With the Tenth Anniversary of Wicket behind us, Wicket is still one of the thriving survivors of the Great Web Framework Wars of the mid 00's. Is there a future for server-side frameworks? In this presentation Martijn Dashorst provides a brief history of Wicket.

With a State of the Wicket, Martijn will look at who is currently using Wicket, the community and current release plans.

The majority of this session will be dedicated to the future of Wicket: does a component oriented, Java web framework have a future in the era of native clients and client side JavaScript frameworks? Martijn will layout the plans of making Wicket more productive for current users, on integrating better with JavaEE technologies and much more.
