Please see below for discussions surrounding Wicket with Seam.
Looking forward to some feedback!

Cheers for looking into this. I'm afraid I don't have time to take a
closer look at this for the next two weeks though, as I'm right in the

As for suggestions for improvement, it is probably best to start
discussions on the dev list. Part of our team is here in Bangkok as
well (Johan, Matej, Jonathan and Martijn), but other active committers
(like Igor and Al, who set up the IoC stuff) will have ideas to work
from. And the rest can hook into any discussions at a later point.
