Authenticated pages display options and information about applications.
A consumer registration page is an authenticated page, and is a separate application
type. However, to access consumer registration pages, you need have only a standard
access role that is granted to all users upon entry to the login page. Consumer
registration pages have the same structure as other application pages, without a
specific authenticated user Web session.
The hierarchy of an authenticated page replicates how all Wicket pages are formed.
Structure of Authenticated Page
The base page for all Wicket Web UI applications is defined by the
- Standard header area, which displays application graphics, the application name,
and optionally, the logged-on user's information, such as a name. It also
contains a logout link and a standard language selector.
- Top navigations menu, which includes global navigation items for all
applications. The items shown to users are application specific, and based on
- Container for the main application page content.
- Standard authenticated footer that includes session timeout information.
The classes that define authenticated application pages extend
, and set the basic structure for the
- BaseConsumerPage – application content structure for both
consumer registration and the Consumer Portal.
- BaseDistributorPage – application content structure for the
- BaseCstPage – application content for the Administration
- BaseDashboardPage – base content for the Operations Dashboard
Application pages allow you to apply specific layouts to their innermost pages:
- An area on the left side of the page (left content column) displays page-context
specific information and menus.
- The right side of the page displays the application page content.
Note Typically, Web applications have maintained the concept of a left content
column, which is enforced by application-specific pages. If you write a new
application that does not require this layout, the
BaseApplicationPage class need not enforce this design. The
hierarchy of Wicket applications allows application pages to define their own
content layout within the application content container.
