Hello World example is everybody's favorite example while starting any new technology. So in this Wicket tutorial we are going to develop first application in wicket which print "Hello World".
In the previous example you have learned how to create a project in the Wicket using the Net Beans IDE. In this "HelloWorld" example we need to create following three files:

HelloWorldApplication contains one constructor and a function which returns class and this is the class where we have added the "Hello World!" message. Full code of HelloWorld.java is as follows:

<span wicket:id="message" id="message">Message goes here</span>
