Denver JUG Tonight: Echo and Wicket

Looks to be a good show at tonight's DJUG: Justin Lee will be talking about Wicket and Tom Poindexter is presenting on Echo2.

BTW, did you know that Wicket may become an Apache project? I consider the main web frameworks in Java to be: JSF, Spring MVC, Struts 2 and Tapestry. RIFE, Stripes and Wicket follow close behind, but are generally very unheard of in the Java community at large. It's kinda wierd to see most of the Java web frameworks (save Spring MVC) end up at Apache, isn't it?

Update: This was a good meeting, mostly because both speakers were excellent. Relaxed, comfortable and good humored. Justin has a recap (and downloadable presentation) on his blog.

Because I don't believe a whole lot of people are using it - based on reading blogs, articles, etc. Also, for the most part, most of audiences I ask at conferences aren't using JSF - so I doubt there's that many using Shale either. If I start seeing more press and positive statements about Shale, I'm open to changing my mind.

I would replace Spring MVC with Stripes in your list.
