Wicket Markup Inheritance

Markup Inheritance lets a Component extend the markup of its super class. The subclass markup is inserted at one point in the super class markup.

Let’s see an example:

public class Parent extends Component {}


… parent content …
… parent content …


… child content …

public class Child extends Parent {}
Renders as:

… parent content …
… child content …
… parent content …

It is just like having a Panel defined in your Component class markup, and let subclasses add the Panel. But it doesn’t need an extra Component and is much easier to use. Markup Inheritance is also a convenient replacement for most Border components.

Markup Inheritance works with WebPages, so you can easily use the same header and footer on several pages.
