Congrats to the Click development team! I've always been fond of Click because it brings simplicity to component-oriented web development. You can get started in minutes and the learning curve is not overwhelming. Keep up the good work! Cheers, Freddy
I used for developing on online store and it worked like a charm. No learning curve. A breath of fresh air in the world of java where simple and intuitive is an insult.
I hope that incubation at Apache will be successful, you deserve it :-)

So special thanks to the Apache crew, including the Apache Wicket and Struts people for their support :) regards Malcolm Edgar
