Introduce a new @CommonlyUsed annotation as a hint for the UI. To be implemented by Wicket viewer (as a minimum)

    Details

      Description

      The @CommonlyUsed annotation iIndicates that a class member is commonly used and so should
      be presented in the viewer in an appropriate manner.

      For example, an Order#lineItems collection might be "opened" automatically so that the user could see a list of line items immediately when the order is rendered.

      Or, a property containing an <tt>Address</tt> might show the referenced address as an embeddded property.

      Or, an action <tt>Submit</tt> might be rendered as a button rather than buried inside a submenu somewhere.

      For properties and collections there is some similarity between this concept and that of eager-loading as supported by some object stores. Indeed, some object stores may choose use their own specific annotations (eg a JDO default fetch group) in order to infer this semantic.
