Our newly appointed Wicket (P)PMC member Jean-Baptiste Quenot has quietly started a new project called PickWick:

Pickwick is a Wicket-based photo gallery.

  • Provides a set of basic pages to render the pictures, organized in folders (called sequences)
  • Uses a nice URL displaying the folder name relative to the images directory
  • Back-office application to edit the photo gallery
  • Thumbnails and scaled images are generated on disk to avoid the complexity of caching systems
  • ImageMagick support, for maximum efficiency and to reduce the memory footprint of the JVM
  • Java2D support

Now this begs the question: is it a hobby or something used within Joost?
