      Description

      Could we please have an interface to tag components that support type safe default models (Think Link, GenericPanel etc). This would help enforce consistency across these types of components.

      Something like:

      public interface IGenericComponent<T>

      { IModel<T> getModel(); void setModel(IModel<T> model); void setModelObject(T object); T getModelObject(); }

      It may also be a good idea to implement a helper utility that does all the casting etc, and takes an additional Component argument per method.

        I didn't add the helper.
        I think we can make all components typesafe for Wicket 7. It will use JDK7 and diamonds will help to keep the amount of typing not that big.
