Contributing to ‘Wicket By Example’

I’m now a contributor on Wicket By Example and have just posted my first article about using the Wicket ObjectAutoCompleteTextField component from the WicketStuff library.

Check it out!

This article was based on my experience creating the private messaging component in Profile2 where you get a list of your connections and can narrow down that list by typing the name of a connection you want to send a message to.

You can try out the messaging feature of Profile2 on the nightly trunk+experimental server hosted by the Sakai Foundation (rebuilt daily at 2.30am Eastern US).
