I'm in the process of writing an article concerning Wicket. I'm wondering what the ambition should be and how to capture that in about 2000 words.

  • focus on current MVC developers (largest population of developers)
  • focus on (b)leading edge developers (small but very vocal population)

The difference in focus is the type of stuff you have to show. Current MVC developers have a different viewpoint than the (b)leading edge devs. The latter know already about component frameworks, and should be enticed to try Wicket, the current MVC developers may have heard about Component Frameworks (JSF, Tapestry), but many of them still haven't, or were afraid to really try them.

So my question is: What do you look for in an article about a new, cool web application framework?
