    Converting JSF to Wicket

    tzman Newbie

      We have an application using JSF and Seam that we are looking at converting to Wicket and Seam. Is it possible to run both view technologies in the same application?


      I have upgraded to Seam 2.2.0 and installed wicket along side JSF. When the application loads the first page, which is JSF, I get ClassCastExceptions complaining about seeing Wicket instead of JSF. I am guessing that I need to split the Filters to go to to different paths. Before I start adding in my own filters, I wanted to see if it was even possible with seam or what other issues I might run into.


      Anyone have an experience with this?



      Thanks in advance.

          It's not possible to have jsf/seam and wicket/seam coexist in the same war/ear.  I have a patched version of Seam 2.2.x that we use internally to do that, and it works fine, but it wasn't accepted into the core.  I can provide that patch to you if you are interested.


          Another thing to consider is that seam3, which is based on Weld, doesn't suffer from this limitation.
