an article comparing wicket and jsf+seam

The blog post compares the performance and memory footprint of Wicket vs JSF+Seam by implementing one of seam examples in Wicket. 

 

Bottom line: Wicket is a clear winner.

 

The author has other implementations, including for tapestry, grails and wicket with groovy / scala: http://code.google.com/p/perfbench/ (anyone up to writing a django implementation?)

 

Regarding Scala vs. Java, here's the same wicket page in Scala and Java:
